Protection for the networked vehicle

The share of electronics in modern, networked vehicles has grown steadily over the past years. Modern vehicles offer many – also wireless – communication interfaces to the internal on-board network. And this trend will only continue in light of current topics, such as electromobility and autonomous driving.

But as the number of applications rise, as do the attack surfaces. That is why the corresponding safeguards must be integrated into the vehicle architecture, into the IT and process landscape. Depending on the level of security required, the mechanisms range from software-based approaches to the development of hardware-protected measures.

 

 


secunet Security Networks AG has been developing and implementing IT security solutions for more than twenty years. The automotive sector recognised this expertise early and began integrating it into internal research and development in late 2001. In 2007, an independent division was founded, dealing exclusively with the concerns of the automotive manufacturers.
