OmniAir Consortium®, the leading industry association promoting interoperability and certification, announces that Woody Kim, Technical Director at Saesol Tech, has been appointed to lead the OmniAir® Cybersecurity Sub-Working Group (CSsWG). He is tasked to develop a series of test cases as part of OmniAir’s connected vehicle certification program.

Woody Kim brings 22 years of experience planning, designing, and developing technology solutions for the automotive, battery, and cybersecurity industries. Woody has a Bachelor of Science from POSTECH, Pohang University of Science and Technology, majoring in Computer Science.

“Secured V2X communications through certificate management is essential,” said, Jason Conley, Executive Director. “OmniAir is confident that Woody Kim of Saesol Tech has the skill set to successfully lead this effort.”

The 1609.2.1 standard specifies certificate management protocols to support the provisioning and management of digital certificates to authorize application activities. This group will develop specific test cases that will allow for certification testing of the latest standards for security. 1609.2.1 is based on a CAMP (Crash Avoidance Metrics Partnership) developed protocol. The CAMP protocol will be retired as the group focuses on the move toward MBD (Misbehavior Detection), CRL (Certificate Revocation List) and CTL (Certificate Trust List) test cases.

The working group will identify services that can be used to protect messages from attacks such as eavesdropping, spoofing, alteration, and replay. These services make use of digital certificates. They will also utilize OmniAir’s Test Control Interface (TCIv3) and SCMS Manager publications as standardized interfaces for requesting, obtaining, and managing these certificates significantly assist the deployment of the system.
