to The Update Framework (TUF)

Uptane, the automotive variant of TUF, is having a workshop next month. The free registration is available through Escar: https://www.escar.info/escar-europe/registration.html. Uptane has had a lot of success deploying TUF in practice, and there should be good discussion about the particular challenges of automotive over-the-air updates. Information about the workshop is below.


Uptane Industry Workshop: Securing Software Updates for Vulnerable Vehicles

A tutorial and workshop in two parts


Thursday, September 23, 7 a.m. New York time (1 p.m. German time) to 10:30 a.m. (4:30 p.m.)


Uptane is an open source, secure software update standard which protects software delivered over-the-air to the computerized units of automobiles. In this free workshop, you will learn more about Uptane’s security principles. 


The workshop is organized in two parts, with a 30 minute break in-between.


Part 1: "An Introduction to Uptane: A Compromise-Resilient Defense Against Nation State Actors” presents an overview of Uptane’s design and the threats it is equipped to defend against. It also explains how its emphasis on compromise-resilience, or the ability to limit the damage from any potential compromise, makes it a realistic solution at a time when the rise of organized attackers and nation state attackers has greatly increased the potential consequences of such attacks, in terms of both economic and human costs.


Part 2: “Integrating Uptane: Lessons Learned” is designed for those who may already have some familiarity with Uptane and are interested in learning more from companies and organizations that have implemented the framework. The presentation will focus on examples/case studies, as well as recent or emerging challenges that the framework is adapting to meet.


Each 45 minute session will consist of a 25 to 30 minute presentation, followed by 15 to 20 minutes of question and answer time with representatives from the Uptane community. One registration covers both parts of the workshop.
