Driverless vehicles have gradually become a reality. Security is a major concern in the process. In this white paper, the challenges of automotive cybersecurity are discussed, and security methodology is proposed to meet these challenges.
Nowadays more and more modern vehicles are wirelessly connected to the Internet. Automotive cybersecurity is not just a vague idea but a real threat, to personal and public safety - numerous automotive hacks have been widely published.
2 Automotive Cybersecurity Challenges
The importance of functional safety cannot be emphasized enough for a vehicle. After years of effort by the automotive community, safety guidelines (such as ISO 26262) are already well established and well supported.
Security shares lots of similarities with safety. However, it has its unique aspects. For example, security risks are dynamic by nature, this means the attack strategy will evolve variably with the time available and the development of the attackers capabilities. Safety-related risks are more static.
This leads to the conclusion that a completely different principle is required to address security issues. Therefore, there exist many challenges for the automotive industry to overcome.
