The advancement of V2X systems has eased the communication between smart vehicles and infrastructure while enabling the exchange of information at an ever-increasing rate. This special session aims to gather scientific papers on the realm of security and privacy issues in V2X systems. It is driven by the rising numbers of smart vehicles, their complex systems such as infotainment, and the amount of information that is generated and exchanged in V2X. We welcome papers that identify and report new data collection bad practices such as from service providers, attacks on the existing solutions and also new designs that consider security and privacy.
