CVO08: Smart Roadside and Virtual WIM

This service package includes the delivery of capabilities related to wireless roadside inspections and electronic screening/virtual weigh stations. Wireless roadside inspection is defined by a safety screening capability that employs communications technologies to obtain information from a commercial vehicle that will allow safety screening of the vehicle and its driver. This capability provides for the interrogation at mainline speeds of a commercial vehicle when it has entered a control segment or geofenced area. Vehicle identification and driver information are provided to the roadside unit. The information communicated can be used to verify compliance with safety requirements, allowing a decision to be made regarding whether the vehicle should pull in to a roadside check station. A more advanced version of this service package would download safety information measured on the vehicle including driver related information such as the driver log allowing real time evaluation that the vehicle and driver are meeting safety requirements. The electronic screening/virtual weigh stations capability employs communications technologies to obtain information from a commercial vehicle that will allow verification of permits or credentials for the vehicle. The information communicated is used to verify compliance with safety requirements, allowing a decision to be made regarding whether the vehicle should pull in to a roadside check station. This service package can also be used to verify that the commercial vehicle meets vehicle weight (via weigh in motion capability) or dimension requirements.

It includes hand held or automatic devices to rapidly inspect the vehicle and driver. Results of screening and summary safety inspection data are stored and maintained.

Since a vehicle may cross jurisdictional boundaries during a trip, it supports the concept of a last clearance event record carried on the vehicle tag. The last clearance event record reflects the results of the roadside verification action. For example, if the vehicle is pulled over in State A and undergoes credential, weight, and safety checks, the results of the clearance process are written to the vehicle s tag. If the vehicle continues the trip and passes a roadside station in State B, the State B station has access to the results of the previous pull-in because it can read the last clearance event record written by the State A roadside station. It associates high-risk cargo with the container/chassis, manifest, carrier, vehicle and driver transporting it.
Commercial Vehicle Check Equipment
CVCE Weigh-In-Motion 'CVCE Weigh-In-Motion' measures and records axle weights and gross vehicle weight without requiring the vehicle to come to a stop. Both permanent and portable installations are supported and may be performed in conjunction with electronic clearance or as a separate application. Commercial Vehicle Check Equipment

This can include some sensitive data. However, other data, such as vehicle location and motion will then be broadcast. There also may be proprietary information included in this. This is used later on to determine whether a vehicle should request priority at an intersection. If this information is incorrect the vehicle may make false requests. All other flows that use the data from this flow have a MODERATE integrity requirement, therefore, this must also have a MODERATE integrity requirement. This information would need to be available immediately for the application to work.
Commercial Vehicle Administration Center Commercial Vehicle Check Equipment commercial vehicle permit information Moderate Moderate Moderate
Indicates company and individual vehicle permitting information, which is competitive commercial data. Observation of this information could provide leverage or business advantage over a particular carrier. If incorrect a vehicle or carrier may be misled about what permits it has or needs, resulting in a potential for being improperly permitted and penalized. MODERATE and not HIGH because the impact is likely to be limited and can likely be easily addressed. If this flow is inconsistently available there is probably little harm. It may be required for real-time CVO checking action, but the effect will apply to only one or at most, a limited number of drivers at a given location.

Control flows, even for seemingly innocent devices, should be kept confidential to minimize attack vectors. While an individual installation may not be particularly impacted by a cyberattack of its sensor network, another installation might be severely impacted, and different installations are likely to use similar methods, so compromising one leads to compromising all. Control flows, even for seemingly innocent devices, should have MODERATE integrity at minimum, just to guarantee that intended control messages are received. Incorrect, corrupted, intercepted and modified control messages can or will result in target field devices not behaving according to operator intent. The severity of this depends on the type of device, which is why some devices are set MODERATE and some HIGH. ontrol flow availability is related to the criticality of being able to remotely control the device. For most devices, this is MODERATE. For purely passive devices with no incident relationship, this will be LOW. All devices should have default modes that enable them to operate without backhaul connectivity, so no device warrants a HIGH.

There are alternative mechanisms for exchanging the driver log, though all have a negative impact on the driver's time, which is why MODERATE and not LOW.
Fleet and Freight Management Center Commercial Vehicle OBE safety inspection record Moderate Moderate Moderate
Inspection results are vehicle-specific even if they don't include PII, and thus between the inspection agency and the vehicle owner. Divulging this information could provide leverage or business advantage. Incorrect or corrupted inspection records will affect the individual commercial vehicle and should be correct, but the scope of such corruption or errors should be limited. If this information is not available the commercial vehicle operator may be inconvenienced, though the armount of time lost may vary depending on the inspection regime. Could be LOW.
Fleet and Freight Management Center Commercial Vehicle OBE trigger area Moderate Moderate Low
Not really sensitive, but provided intentionally only to carriers that register with the CVAC. MODERATE considering that only those that register are intended to receive this information. Information associated with inspection areas, cargos and vehicle types should be correct so the FFMC and its associated vehicles undestand the inspection regime in which they operate. This flow should not need to be updated often. Even if not functioning when an update should occur, the effect should be limited to those vehicles operating under the trigger conditions in between updates. Could possibly be MODERATE if trigger areas are very dynamic in a given area.
Fleet and Freight Management Center Commercial Vehicle OBE trigger area notification Low High Moderate
Broadcast intended for all commercial vehicles in fleet; no harm if non-commercial vehicles receive this. Trigger area messages indicate particular behaviors expected of commercial vehicles in the area; if corrupted, unavailable or forged commercial vehicles could be suspect to additional procedures or penalties which signficiantly affect their operations. Trigger area messages indicate particular behaviors expected of commercial vehicles in the area; if corrupted, unavailable or forged commercial vehicles could be suspect to additional procedures or penalties which signficiantly affect their operations. There should be other mechanisms for learning this information, which is why availability is MODERATE and not HIGH.
Freight Equipment Commercial Vehicle Check Equipment freight equipment information Moderate Moderate Moderate
Will include proprietary and/or competitive information that should be disclosed only when necessary and to those with a need for the information. Information must be accurate in order to be properly acted upon in support of screening or commercial vehicle safety processes. Information must be timely in order to be properly acted upon in support of screening or commercial vehicle safety processes, though some of the information contained has alternative delivery mechanisms.
Freight Equipment Commercial Vehicle OBE freight equipment information Moderate Moderate Moderate
Cargo status information, though internal to the vehicle, should probably be protected as part of a sound defense-in-depth strategy against malicious hacking. Freight Vehicle to CV OBE is considered on-board when the vehicle and freight are mated, so the same logic holds. Cargo status information, though internal to the vehicle, should probably be protected as part of a sound defense-in-depth strategy against malicious hacking. Freight Vehicle to CV OBE is considered on-board when the vehicle and freight are mated, so the same logic holds. On-board data exchanges, should be at least MODERATE so that on-board systems can fulfill their functions. Freight Vehicle to CV OBE is considered on-board when the vehicle and freight are mated, so the same logic holds.
Other CV Administration Centers Commercial Vehicle Administration Center commercial vehicle permit information Moderate Moderate Moderate
Indicates company and individual vehicle permitting information, which is competitive commercial data. Observation of this information could provide leverage or business advantage over a particular carrier. If incorrect a vehicle or carrier may be misled about what permits it has or needs, resulting in a potential for being improperly permitted and penalized. MODERATE and not HIGH because the impact is likely to be limited and can likely be easily addressed. If this flow is inconsistently available there is probably little harm. It may be required for real-time CVO checking action, but the effect will apply to only one or at most, a limited number of drivers at a given location.
Other CV Administration Centers Commercial Vehicle Administration Center credentials information High High Moderate
Credentials contain PII and proprietary information including trip data. This is private and competitive. If revealed, could provide leverage over carrier and/or vehicle. Incorrect or unavailable credentials information could delay clearance, could result in incorrect assessment of penalties. HIGH because the impact should be extensive as this flow could include credentials information for large numbers of carriers and vehicles. Incorrect or unavailable credentials information could delay clearance, could result in incorrect assessment of penalties. MODERATE because while the impact could be extensive due to the number of vehicles involved, the flow can be reestablished and any issues fixed relatively quickly.
