The USDOT will host a free public webinar on the new SCMS POC, a temporary security system that will enable the Department’s connected vehicle projects to address unanswered questions regarding the exchange of information among vehicles, roadway infrastructures, traffic management centers, and wireless mobile devices.


The USDOT is committed to ensuring that connected vehicle technologies operate in a safe, secure, and privacy-protective manner. For this reason, the USDOT has partnered with the automotive industry and industry security experts through the Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership (CAMP) to implement a temporary POC security system. Through this message security solution for vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication, the Department’s connected vehicle projects can trust in the validity of information received from each component within the system–indistinct users whom they have never met and do not know personally.


This public webinar will discuss the fundamental principles and research under the SCMS POC. It will explore topics such as:

  • Definition of the SCMS POC and the eligibility criteria for its use
  • The SCMS POC Quality Access system’s enrollment certification process
  • Access to publicly available information regarding the USDOT’s connected vehicle projects and SCMS POC documentation
  • Collaboration on a certification test program that will provide connected vehicle vendors with the ability to verify that their devices meet key protocols within the connected vehicle standards
  • The upcoming PlugFest on October 16th for connected vehicle vendors to experience the certification test program.
