Digital Rail Summer School: Hacking RaSTA

The RaSTA protocol plays an important role in the data exchange of modern digital interlockings. But does the protocol also offer protection against cyber attacks?
In a hackathon together with students from Hasso Plattner Institute and the University of Passau we are challenging the security specification of RaSTA. In a laboratory environment we attack the IT security properties of the RaSTA protocol stack and gain valuable experience in protecting digital signaling technology. We use the open source RaSTA implementation available on Github.
