Automated Vulnerability Management


Meet the Challenges of Complex Automotive Security


Today’s vehicles are basically computers on wheels, exposed with endless attack vectors, opening them to cyberattacks targets, both on an individual and fleet level. As a result, many countries are passing regulatory standards to authorize OEMs to sell in their geographies. These standards, ISO/SAE 21434, are the base for the UN-R155 regulations that mandate OEMs and Tier 1/2 Suppliers to use some level of vulnerability management. However, there are several key challenges for OEMs and Tier 1/2 suppliers to overcome before reaching compliance and mostly importantly, to reach a comprehensive level of cyber protection.


  • Complex supply chains: Numerous suppliers contribute software components, each introducing potential vulnerabilities.
  • Connectivity risks: Interfaces like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, cellular, CAN and ETH make vehicles susceptible to remote attacks and physical attacks through the use of USBs and OBDs.
  • Incomplete SBOMs: Inaccurate Software / Hardware Bill of Materials (BOMs) from suppliers complicate vulnerability assessments.
  • Manual processes: Time-consuming methods need to be rerun at each development stage. and manual scanning typically misses many vulnerabilities. 
  • Increased threat landscape: An increasing number of attackers target both individual vehicles and fleets, from individuals to a nation-state level.
