Navigating the Automotive Security Threat Landscape (Register Now)

Last year, over 4,000 vulnerabilities were reported in open source software (and thousands more in proprietary code). While most threats target enterprise data centers and desktop PCs, increasing integration of open source in In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) head units and other automotive systems makes vehicles potentially subject to the same types of exploits. For automakers, this year was crowned by white hat attacks on IVI, vehicle control and security systems using standard 3G connections and readily available aftermarket components.

As IT and automotive industry participants learn of each new threat and take steps to remediate it, there is a collective sigh of wonderment as to “when will it all end?”

This webinar, presented by the GENIVI Alliance, will characterize the range and type of cybersecurity threats to the automotive ecosystem and to the vehicles it delivers. Discussion will include network-based exploits (3G), local attacks (WiFi, Bluetooth and wireless keys/key-fobs), the role of open source software in automotive systems design, and steps OEMs, Tier One suppliers and other ecosystem participants are taking to meet cybersecurity threats head-on.

Security and the Automotive Development Lifecycle (Details)

Cybersecurity, rather than being the aim of application development, often exists in opposition to delivery of software and software-enabled automotive systems. Even with multi-year product roadmaps, developers of automotive applications face the same pressures as their enterprise and consumer electronics counterparts. There are constant pressures to prototype, create and deliver software on-time and at budget, and to meet ever more aggressive lifecycles and shorter market windows. Consequently, software is often deployed with the “paint-still-wet” core functionality mostly in place, but without additional investment needed to harden applications and systems against cyberattack.

Architecting the Secure Connected Car (Details)

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, will review challenges faced by existing automotive systems architectures and attributes, including system configurations, wireless connectivity, insecure software updates, and presumptions of physical security. It will examine 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. Finally, webinar participants are welcome to provide their vision for building the most secure vehicles possible, including autonomous solutions, in today’s shifting and treacherous cybersecurity landscape.
