Quantitative System-Level Security Verification of the IoV Infrastructure

01/15/2021 ∙ by Jan Lauinger, et al. ∙ 0

The Internet of Vehicles (IoV) equips vehicles with connectivity to the Internet and the Internet of Things (IoT) to support modern applications such as autonomous driving. However, the consolidation of complex computing domains of vehicles, the Internet, and the IoT limits the applicability of tailored security solutions. In this paper, we propose a new methodology to quantitatively verify the security of single or system-level assets of the IoV infrastructure. In detail, our methodology decomposes assets of the IoV infrastructure with the help of reference sub-architectures and the 4+1 view model analysis to map identified assets into data, software, networking, and hardware categories. This analysis includes a custom threat modeling concept to perform parameterization of Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) scores per view model domain. As a result, our methodology is able to allocate assets from attack paths to view model domains. This equips assets of attack paths with our IoV-driven CVSS scores. Our CVSS scores assess the attack likelihood which we use for Markov Chain transition probabilities. This way, we quantitatively verify system-level security among a set of IoV assets. Our results show that our methodology applies to arbitrary IoV attack paths. Based on our parameterization of CVSS scores and our selection of use cases, remote attacks are less likely to compromise location data compared to attacks from close proximity for authorized and unauthorized attackers respectively.
