Key decisions to progress Australian deployment of a security credential management system (SCMS)

The purpose of this document is to present the key decisions for progressing the development of a security credential management system (SCMS) in Australia. Although it isolates issues specific to the SCMS, where necessary, the document points to developments in C-ITS more broadly, given that one cannot exist without the other, and developments in one area will impact and be impacted by the other. The SCMS is a highly specialised area, drawing on established and bespoke cybersecurity strategies and techniques, progressed in unison with the latest advancements in intelligent transport technology. This document intends to contribute to an existing body of knowledge, and to facilitate national collaboration on security management for connected vehicles. The document restricts the discussion to issues that require the attention of policy and decision makers, since technical decisions for the SCMS can largely be progressed once key decisions or intentions are made clear. The SCMS will be a highly sensitive and responsive system comprising people, technical and operational processes and policies, and its overall composition and operation will be designed to translate the Australian policy environment into security outcomes. This means that the discussion can take place at a relatively high level, without sacrificing complexity. Technical insights and concepts are defined and described where necessary, so that readers can make informed decisions.
