Security Guideline for MQTT Protocol

6 September 2021 12:00 CE

MQTT stands for “Message Queuing Telemetry Transport”. This protocol was designed 1999 for machine-to-machine telemetry in low bandwidth environments for TCP/IP networks. MQTT started as a proprietary protocol, it was released Royalty free in 2010 and became OASIS standard in 2014. MQTT was fast becoming one of the main protocols of IOT (internet of things) deployments. MQTT v3.1.1 is in Common Use, the new version MQTT v5 has been approved in Jan 2018 and is currently in Limit use. This web-seminar gives an overview of security threats and common vulnerability patterns of the MQTT v3.1.1 protocol if you don’t use today’s state-of-the-art security features of TCP/IP. The web-seminar shows methods to put security into MQTT v3.1.1 protocol and pinpoints the advantages and disadvantages for each case that will be discussed. The target audience of this web-seminar are developers with a good understanding of TCP/IP and MQTT-protocol. As preparation we suggest reading Section 4.5.2 of 5GCroCo Deliverable D3.2

5GCroCo: Docker Security Guidelines

10 & 17 May 2021 12:00 CE

Abstract:

Container technologies have seen a rise in popularity in recent years. They provide a convenient way of packaging applications for deployment in production and offer lightweight alternatives to virtual machines (VMs). However, containers do not offer the same security benefits as VMs and - from a security perspective - many things can be done wrong when developing and running containerized workloads.

This web-seminar gives an overview of security threats and common vulnerability patterns related to designing, developing, and deploying docker containers. The focus are the most common docker vulnerability patterns, as seen "in the wild" from the experience of security assessments and based on security best practices. Insecure practices, potential misconfigurations and common pitfalls related to the building of docker images, containers at runtime, and the host environment are covered. For every issue, secure solutions, available protection mechanisms, as well as examples are provided.

The target audience of this web-seminar are developers with a basic understanding of docker who want and need to ensure they build and run containerized workloads in a secure manner. Only issues to docker and docker-compose are covered. More complex container orchestration tools, such as Kubernetes or OpenShift, are out of scope. As preparation we suggest reading Section 4.5.3 of 5GCroCo Deliverable D3.2

Note: This web-seminar is split into two parts. The second part continues where the first part leaves off.

Fabian Würfl works as Security Consultant at SEC Consult. His main areas of work are web application pen tests, network security assessments and Docker/Kubernetes/OpenShift security assessments. He regularly holds secure coding trainings for developers and works on internal software development projects.

 

5GCroCo: Cross-border / -MNO Handover Architecture and Trial Results

19 April 2021 12:00 CE

Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) will enrich assisted and automated driving by exchange of information among vehicles (V2V), as well as between vehicles and the network, commonly also called ”cloud” or ”backend”, (V2N). CCAM services should not be interrupted when crossing a country border and with that also switching between different Mobile Network Operators (MNOs).

This web-seminar will present the 3GPP-complient network architecture applied in the 5GCroCo project to achieve cross-border / MNO (Inter-PLMN) handover. Furthermore, first results and experience from trials will be presented and discussed.

5GCroCo: Challenges and Solutions for V2X Interoperability

12 April 2021 12:00 CE

Section 3.3.5 of the recently published 5GCroCo Deliverable D3.1 on "Final Application Architecture" explains the challenges and solutions for interoperability around the Anticipated Cooperative Collision Avoidance (ACCA) use case. This use case serves as example to uncover challenges if information, in this case hazard warnings, must be shared between different automotive OEMs and between OEMs and different Road Traffic Authorities (RTAs).

“Standardization” is often considered necessary in this context. This presentation introduces the current and near-future eco-system of information sharing for connected vehicles. It describes how different solutions, beyond everyone just following the same standard, can be used to achieve service-level interoperability among different ITS systems and stakeholders. For each solution, involved stakeholders are identified and their respective effort to establish and maintain (evolve / upgrade) the interoperability solution.

Result Confidence Assessment and Trial Planning: Experience from 5GCroCo

29 March 2021 12:00 CE

This webinar will cover the following topics based on experience from trials conducted in the 5GCroCo project and analysis of obtained results:

  • Plan trials to obtain the required number of result samples
  • Tweak applications to allow faster trials still providing realistic KPIs
  • Result analysis with different methods to determine confidence for different kinds of statistics:
    • Sanity checking
    • Batch Means method for Student-t Confidence Intervals
    • Binomial Proportion Confidence Intervals for simple estimation of confidence of statistical distributions (e.g. latency CCDFs)
    • Limited Relative Error (LRE) Algorithm for statistical distribution confidence (e.g. latency CCDFs)

As preparation we suggest reading Section 3.1 of 5GCroCo Deliverable D4.2 on "First Phase Trial Execution Report and Analysis of 5GCroCo KPIs"
