Last year, over 4,000 vulnerabilities were reported in open source software (and thousands more in proprietary code). While most threats target enterprise data centres and desktop PCs, increasing integration of open source software in in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) head units and other automotive systems makes vehicles potentially vulnerable to the same types of exploits. For vehicle manufacturers, 2015 has become synonymous with white hat attacks on IVI, vehicle control and security systems using standard 3G connections and readily available aftermarket components.
This webinar, presented by the GENIVI Alliance, will characterise the range and type of cyber security threats to the automotive ecosystem and to the vehicles it delivers. Discussion will include network-based exploits (3G), local attacks (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and wireless keys/key-fobs), the role of open source software in automotive systems design, and the steps OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers and other ecosystem participants are taking to meet cyber security threats head-on.
