In recent years we were forced to confront anew issue not of serious concern before - security of and in the use of technology. While the basic concerns mentioned above were all dependent on the design, manufacture, use, operation, and the environment in which the technology worked and were therefore imbedded reactive characteristics, security is an externally imposed danger. Protection against security impacts cannot be provided by making technology more efficient, reliable or even safe, bur by introducing detection, barrier, fail proofing, and various proactive measures designed to protect the technology from purposely disruptive and destructive actions. In this presentation we will discuss approaches to proactive and preventative measures under development designed to improve the security of transportation. We will note that these measures cannot be based on historic performance but must consider an array of potential interventions.
