Published: 29 Jun 2018

Cars are continually incorporating more software and becoming more connected, opening up vulnerabilities to cyber security attacks. At present cars have approximately 100 ECUs and more than 100 million lines of code which provides a massive attack surface for hackers. Hackers can exploit and gain access to any vulnerable, peripheral ECU such as Bluetooth, to take control of critical core ECUs which controls brakes or engine. Hackers can disabled a vehicle’s brakes or steering, can shut down the engine, or manipulate other on-board systems through denial of service attacks (DDoS), thereby endangering the vehicle occupants’ lives. Also, addition of any connected component to support vehicle infotainment systems, maintenance monitoring, and other systems, increases cyber-attack possibilities. Key security challenges faced by the automotive industry in IoT ecosystem are through following threat vectors: Vulnerable Connected Components Data Transmissions and Unauthorized Access Unsecured Software (OTA) Updates In brief, this research service covers the following points: 1. Connected Car Security – An Overview 2. Security Challenges for Connected Cars 3. Technology Advancements in Connected Car Security Arena 4. Key Market Trends and Developments 5. Key Innovations related to OTA updates and ECU security 6. Patent, adoption trends and key funding initiatives
