Securing Microelectronics for Safer Automobiles
By John Hallman, Product Manager Trust & Security, OneSpin Solutions
Security researchers have demonstrated extensively how cybersecurity attacks can have disastrous consequences in automotive systems. A successful car hack could be extended to an entire fleet of vehicles and put many lives in danger. Moreover, car owners’ privacy and the protection of intellectual properties (IPs) and other assets of car manufactures and their supply chain are also at stake. Unlike safety, however, automotive cybersecurity is in its infancy. The upcoming “ISO/SAE 21434 Road Vehicles – Cybersecurity Engineering” standard promises to modernise and harmonise cybersecurity activities across the automotive supply chain.
