Privacy Engineering in the Automotive Domain

Monday, August 12, 2019 - 4:30 pm5:00 pm

Frank Kargl, Ulm University


This talk addresses privacy protection in the automotive domain and for connected vehicles. As cars and mobility services like tolling or charging services have the potential to track their users mobility behavior, this field became aware of the need of privacy protection comparatively early. A particular challenge is to integrate privacy engineering into the daily practice of software and system engineers that have no deep knowledge of privacy concepts. The talk will outline how our understanding of automotive privacy developed over the past 15 years and how privacy engineering can be put into practice.
