Connectedcar

The automotive industry is undergoing a paradigm shift.
The digital lifestyle is moving into vehicles,
and cars are becoming part of the Internet of Everything.

The connected car is the convergence of multiple industries, technologies, and ecosystems with different business models, bringing together communications, automotive and consumer electronics. Vehicles will be connected not only to the Cloud, but also to other vehicles – vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) – and to their surrounding infrastructure – vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I). Self-driving cars are no longer the product of science-fiction movies, and autonomous cars that run on software will have a huge impact on our lives and society.

These changes will create a tremendous opportunity for economic innovation, consumer convenience, and of course, public health and safety.

Thechallenge

Increased connectivity means increased exposure, and as the number of functionalities increase, so do the risks. The threat is real. Attackers can and are infiltrating car systems and taking control of vehicles.

Automobiles today are literally ‘computers on wheels’, with a wide range of components that have wireless capability. Indeed, critical components of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), autonomous driving, and telematics, have at least 50% of their functionality and complexity ‘located’ outside of the car.

The possible consequences are huge:

  • Exposure of confidential data
  • Theft of personal data and breach of privacy
  • Disruption of systems
  • Economic espionage
  • Extortion threats
  • Theft of intellectual property
  • Interference with safety systems and so much more

 

It is critical that car manufacturers ensure that modern vehicles are not vulnerable to malicious attacks. At the same time, the data created by the consumer and the vehicle can be used to generate revenue, by predicting driver and vehicle behavior. Telemetry, fuel consumption and driving patterns can help manufacturers optimize their new car designs.

As more and more advances are made in the field of connected and autonomous vehicles, issues relating to cyber security will become more prevalent and pressing. It’s time cyber security expanded beyond its technical silo and entered the automotive industry.
