Ground Vehicle Security: Trends, Problems, Solutions, and Future Work

IEEE Computer Society,  Pikes Peak Chapter, February 2023 Meeting

Virtual Presentation with Dr. Gedare Bloom from UCCS

The security of every vehicle on the road is necessary to ensure the safety of every person on or near roadways, whether a motorist, bicyclist, or pedestrian.

Features such as infotainment, telematics, and driver assistance greatly increase the complexity of vehicles: top-of-the-line cars contain over 200 computers and 100 million lines of software code.

With rising complexity comes rising costs to ensure safety and security.

This talk discusses threats and attacks against ground vehicles, methods to improve vehicular security, and challenges inherent in responding to attacks in a manner that ensures the safety of humans in close proximity to the vehicle.

Dr. Gedare Bloom Dr. Gedare Bloom


Gedare Bloom received his Ph.D. in computer science from The George Washington University in 2013. He joined the University of Colorado Colorado Springs as an Assistant Professor of Computer Science in 2019 and Associate Professor in 2022. He was an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Howard University from 2015-2019. His research expertise is computer system security with emphasis on real-time embedded systems. He has published over sixty peer reviewed articles, serves as a program committee member and technical referee for flagship conferences and journals, is an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, and serves on the Executive Committee of the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Community on Real-Time Systems. He is a Senior Member of both the ACM and the IEEE.

Since 2011 Dr. Bloom has been a maintainer for the RTEMS open-source hard real-time operating system, which is used in robotics frameworks, unmanned vehicles, satellites and space probes, automotive, defense, building automation, medical devices, industrial controllers, and more. Some of his key contributions to RTEMS include the first 64-bit architectural port of RTEMS, design and implementation of a modern thread scheduling infrastructure, support for running RTEMS as a paravirtualized guest for avionics hypervisors, and implementation of POSIX services required to be compliant with the FACE avionics standard. Additionally, he mentors and guides students around the world through learning about and developing with RTEMS. He co-authored the textbook "Real-Time Systems Development with RTEMS and Multicore Processors" published by CRC Press in 2020.
