Dine and Learn: VPKI Hits the Highway


IEEE Denver Banner

The Denver Section would like to invite you to join us for the latest presentation in our Dine and Learn series!

Come join your fellow IEEE members and local engineers for a fun filled evening of appetizers, networking, and dinner, while we discover exciting new innovations in technology. Once a month one of your local Denver IEEE Societies will host the event and bring in a unique speaker related to their field to present. This provides you, our members, with a unique opportunity to explore and learn about exciting new technologies being developed around you. Early on in the evening you’ll also have ample opportunity to mingle with your fellow engineers and colleagues delving into a broad range of technical expertise.

We will provide the appetizers, but dinner is at your own expense. Dinner for students is free.

If there is a specific speaker or topic you find interesting please let us know and we will try to accommodate it in the schedule.

Upcoming presentations:

June - Deep Learning

VPKI Hits the Highway

With the increasing prospects of deploying vehicular networks there are challenges and debates. Viable deployment models, different air interfaces, spectrum sharing issues and security and privacy concerns are among the most topical issues of industry debate. This talks present a condensed account of the 10-year effort to develop and deploy vehicular public-key infrastructure (VPKI) as a security infrastructure for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) intelligent transportations systems (ITS). An examination of the Secure Credential Management System (SCMS) will highlight the ways in which government, industry, and academia have converged to secure the promise of vehicular networks as ITS emerges as a reality of the 21st century. A case study of the current US Department of Transportation’s Connected Vehicle Pilot will be the focus of the presentation.


Tim Weil is a Senior Member of the IEEE and Security Editor for IT Professional magazine (IEEE). In the areas of Vehicular Networks his work includes the IEEE 1609 (WAVE) standards, US DOT VII/Intellidrive and Connected Vehicle programs, author and speaker on topics in Security for Vehicular Networks. His interests include “Service Management for Vehicular Networks Using WAVE. (IEEE 1609) Protocols” and topics related to the PKI models for implementing IEEE 1609.2 (WAVE Security). Mr. Weil is an industry-certified security professional (CISSP/CCSP, CISA, PMP), past chair of the IEEE Denver Communication Society Chapter and current candidate for Director of IEEE Region 5.
