Roadside Equipment --> Border Inspection System:
container manifest


container manifest (Information Flow): Official statement of the cargo held in a container.

Roadside Equipment (Source Physical Object): 'Roadside Equipment' (RSE) represents the Connected Vehicle roadside devices that are used to send messages to, and receive messages from, nearby vehicles using Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) or other alternative wireless communications technologies. Communications with adjacent field equipment and back office centers that monitor and control the RSE are also supported. This device operates from a fixed position and may be permanently deployed or a portable device that is located temporarily in the vicinity of a traffic incident, road construction, or a special event. It includes a processor, data storage, and communications capabilities that support secure communications with passing vehicles, other field equipment, and centers.

Border Inspection System (Destination Physical Object): 'Border Inspection System' represents data systems used at the border for the inspection of people or goods. It supports immigration, customs (trade), agricultural, and FDA inspections as applicable. It includes sensors and surveillance systems to identify and classify drivers and their cargo as they approach a border crossing, the systems used to interface with the back-office administration systems and provide information on status of the crossing or events.

The contents of a freight container may not necessarily be something that should be made public. If it is known that a container is carrying high value objects, it may be the target of theft. Due to the nature of this information, it is impossible to be certain that what it states is true, thus it cannot have a HIGH integrity. However, it should be as accurate as possible. If the vehicle is not pre-approved it will be handled by border security. Therefore, it is not clear that there is any security risk from failures of availability; more availability allows the operator to benefit from the processing efficiency gains associated with this application but any level of availability is acceptable from a security point of view.
