Cybersecurity Best Practices for Managing Mixed Fleets
Authors: Xiaojian Jin, Elena Griffor
Abstract: This paper provides an overview of the cybersecurity of mixed fleets with vehicles both equipped and not equipped with automated driving systems. The focus is cybersecurity from the perspective of ADS-equipped commercial motor vehicle (CMV) fleets that incorporate some level of automated driving capabilities after being manufactured and during their commercial operation. The owners and operators of these fleets are naturally concerned about the threats and vulnerabilities of ADS technologies and the security of their operations. This paper includes sections on cybersecurity best practices, both general and specific. The intended audience includes mixed fleet owners and operators, policymakers, and other stakeholders. This overview is best viewed as a starting point for CMV fleets and other audiences with a general interest in the practical real-world implementation of cybersecurity measures and ADS deployment. It provides general guidelines on cybersecurity and specifics related to cybersecurity for mixed fleets.
