ACM TODAES Best Paper Award 2019

TUMCREATE Co-Programme Principal Investigator and team awarded Best Paper Award at Design Automation Conference 06.06.2019


TUMCREATE would like to congratulate our Co-Programme Principal Investigator, Prof. Sebastian Steinhorst, and his co-authors in attaining the ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES) Best Paper Award 2019 at the Design Automation Conference. The paper was completed in March 2017 and was financially supported by the Singapore National Research Foundation under its Campus for Research Excellence and Technological Enterprise (CREATE) programme.


As increasing numbers of vehicles are being connected to the outside world, the exposure risk of safety-critical systems rises significantly. With the multitude of communication interfaces, it is very difficult, or even impossible, to reliably control all entry points into the vehicle or shield the vehicular network with firewalls. Hence, it is important that, besides the external access points, communication within a vehicle is secured.


Titled “Security in Automotive Networks: Lightweight Authentication and Authorization”, the paper addresses the challenges of designing authentication protocols for automotive systems and presents the design, evaluation, verification and integration of the Lightweight Authentication for Secure Automotive Networks (LASAN), a full life-cycle authentication approach.
