InterCor PKI-Security TESTFEST in Reims, France

April 23, 2018 - April 26, 2018

When: Monday, April 23, 2018 at 9:00 AM  Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 5:00 PM (CEST)
Where: Reims, France

In the European project InterCor – involving France, Netherlands, UK and Belgium – existing Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) are being upgraded and tested for their interoperability along with new services. To ensure interoperability, a common set of specifications geared towards seamless cross-border service continuity are being developed and validated. The validation is carried out during four TESTFESTs where the interoperability of in-vehicle end-user devices and road-side ITS stations from the different EU Member States is tested.

The first TESTFEST, focusing on ITS-G5 services (Wi-Fi-p), was held in Netherlands in July 2017 (see here for more info).

The second TESTFEST is being co-organised by the InterCor project together with French partners of the Scoop@F project. It will take place around the city of Reims, France, on the A4 and A344 highways. The main goal of this TESTFEST is to check the use of different Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) and the authentication of messages sent from different ITS stations. Different security scenarios will be tested along with following services:

  • Roadworks Warning (RWW) using DENM messages, in particularProbe Vehicle Data (PVD) using CAM and DENM messages
    • Alert neutralisation of part of a lane, whole lane or several lanes
    • Alert planned road works – mobile (e.g.  cutting the grass or renewing the lane markings)
    • Winter maintenance – Salting in progress
  • A V2V warning (OHLN) using DENM

The InterCor TESTFESTs are open to anyone active in this field. Interested public and private organisations (public authorities, road operators, systems suppliers, services providers, vehicle manufacturers, etc.) are invited to register and to take part in this first TESTFEST. i.e. by bringing on-board units (suitable for the services) and vehicles to test the interoperability with the InterCor RSUs in France.

The registrations are now closed. 

For any questions or further information at this stage, please contact:


Main Security-PKI functionalities to be tested are:

  • Message Signature/verification
  • The use of pseudonym certificates
  • Trust chain verification


Two webinars will be scheduled for participants, in order to prepare for the TESTFEST:

About InterCor

InterCor is a 3 year project of 30 million Euros co-financed by the European Union under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Programme; it will enable vehicles and the related road infrastructure to communicate data through cellular, ITS-G5 or a combination of cellular and ITS-G5 (hybrid) networks on road corridors through The Netherlands, Belgium, UK and France to achieve safer, more efficient and more convenient mobility for people and goods.

SCOOP@F is a 3 year project of 20 million Euros co-financed by the European Union under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Programme. It is a Cooperative ITS pilot deployment project that intends to connect approximately 3000 vehicles with 2000 kilometres of roads. It consists of 5 specific sites with different types of roads: Ile de France, “East Corridor” between Paris and Strasbourg, Brittany, Bordeaux and Isère. SCOOP@F is composed of SCOOP@F Part 1 from 2014 to 2015 and SCOOP@F Part 2 from 2016 to 2018. Its main objective is to improve the safety of road transport and of road operating staff during road works or maintenance. SCOOP@F Part 2 includes the validations of C-ITS services in open roads, cross border tests with other EU Member States (Spain, Portugal and Austria) and the development of a hybrid communication solution (3G-4G/ITS G5).

The C-Roads Platform is co-financed by the European Union under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) Programme, but is an open platform.

Therefore representatives from all ongoing C-ITS deployment activities all across Europe are working together towards interoperable C-ITS services for European travellers.
