Connected and automated vehicles (CA Vs) represent a challenge for future transportation systems as they generate a massive amount of data which may also include security threats and vulnerabilities for users. In this paper, we adapt a model- based systems engineering (MBSE) approach called the Internet of Things Security Modelling (IoTsecM) to address security challenges and system-level security critical issues in the domain of CAVs. Not only are connected and automated vehicles considered, but also their interactions with other assets such as roadside infrastructure, sensors and traffic lights. The application is based on a project which identified innovative solutions related to connectivity, data analytics and safe design for CAVs in the UK. The objective of introducing IoTsecM into the project context was to provide an MBSE method to develop a systems architecture where the security mechanisms and controls are identified and modelled during the requirements stage in order to facilitate secure, trustworthy and private CAV technology development by design.
