EC Security Policy Release 1

These documents complement the C-ITS Certificate Policy that was published already in June 2017. They provide the basis for secure and interoperable C-ITS deployment in the common single European trust domain and must hence be adhered to by all C-ITS deployment initiatives in Europe.
