How Connected Car Security Helps Auto Manufacturers Manage Safety Vulnerabilities?

The complexities of security make the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and other supply chain companies worry about the safety

FREMONT, CA: Vehicles are always connected in this networked world, which presents them with serious cybersecurity risks. That's because automotive manufacturers have become as much software as transport companies, and they face all the difficulties inherent to the protection of software, which is far behind in keeping pace with automotive industry technology. The period between the initial start of a vehicle and its actual launch is one of the safety challenges faced by the industry. In the meantime, new security problems arise, so that the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) and other supply chain organizations are also forced to worry about security.

Security should be of great concern when it comes to designing a vehicle. This should begin at the chip level. Even if the chip level is weak, regardless of how much shielding you placed, it will still be weak. This urged the manufacturers of chips to come up with much more robust and reliable solutions.

As computers drive even the basic vehicles launched recently, let that be lane management, cruise control, lane metering, or infotainment system, it is driven by the PC. Not only is it a 5 G connectivity, but intelligent Zigbee-armed vehicles can connect to intelligent home systems. One example is the owners of the house being told about the state of the vehicle when their cars approach the home.

Top Connected Car Solution CompaniesBeginning with the fundamental activities in the process of vehicle design, auto manufacturers should commence for general connected car security. The preferred standard tools are fuzz testing and static code analysis. After the automobile has left the production, car manufacturers must handle the technological debt. The only time a car is serviced is often when the dealer gets a software update. Organizations must look at the ways in which software in those cars is handled during the vehicle's lifespan, where virtualization will play a significant role. 

Manufacturers can not keep every version of the vehicle for testing; therefore, the creation of a virtualized environment and performing the level of testing is necessary to manage safety vulnerabilities, which can help a great deal in the years ahead.
