As self-driving vehicles are coming off the production line, automakers are deploying technology to improve the driving experience, from the infotainment system to enhancing brake and fuel efficiency. Yet, adequate cyber security measures still need to catch up. Whether it’s the hacked Jeep or the Nissan Leaf app vulnerability, connected vehicles often fail to implement basic authentication and encryption measures to protect users.
Mike Nelson and Mike Ahmadi will cover the following topics:
- Insight into the state of connected vehicle security and the need for interoperable standards-based solutions.
- How connected device manufacturers are using public key infrastructure (PKI) to provide scalable authentication, encryption and data integrity for the vehicle and its thousands of connected parts.
- Specific steps security teams can take beginning today.
