IoT technologies are increasingly being deployed to support the operation and maintenance of complex highways infrastructure assets. However, the use of interconnected cyber-physical systems in such critical infrastructure raises important privacy, safety and security issues. While security issues in IoT transport systems and autonomous vehicles are well studied, there is minimal research relating to cyber security in the field of highways maintenance. In this paper, we introduce the problem domain, evidence the lack of existing research and provide example threats to IoT highways maintenance systems based on a real-world case study.
