Architecting the secure connected car


January 28, 2016 

Today all types of vehicles are becoming increasing connected to the internet and participating material in the emerging Internet of Things. As they become more “wired” those connected cars, trucks and other transportation systems find themselves in the crosshairs of cybercriminals and their arsenal of exploits and malware. However, in automotive as elsewhere, the state-of-the-art seems highly reactive, addressing new threats as they occur, essentially “fighting the last war.” While incremental remediation is the order of the day, members of the automotive ecosystem need to invest in a mix of new architectures and best practices today for securing the connected car of tomorrow.

This webinar, presented by the GENIVI Alliance, reviews the challenges faced by existing automotive systems architectures and attributes, including system configurations, wireless connectivity, insecure software updates, and presumptions of physical security. It examines emerging architectures and technologies for developing and deploying more secure In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and control systems, including stronger isolation/virtualization, application firewalls and network security.
