DZSF - The digital rail transport of the future

What security measures do we need to protect rail transport from cyberattacks in 2050? Digitalization will permanently change rail travel by then. The degree of automation will increase, operators and customers will be more closely connected to seamlessly integrate mobility into our everyday lives.

In the research project of the German Centre for Rail Traffic Research (DZSF), INCYDE, together with Fraunhofer SIT, Nextrail and the University of Passau, is determining the need for security measures and explores new methodological as well as technical approaches. The goal is to prevent future cyber-attacks, protecting privacy and placing the mutual trust of the players on a technically profound basis.
