Cyber Security in the Connected Vehicle Environment
Connected vehicles communicate wirelessly with each other and with the road infrastructure and this presents new opportunities for hacking attacks. These attacks may attempt to prevent, intercept or manipulate information which can potentially compromise single or multiple vehicles and aspects of the road infrastructure. Building on risk and safety considerations, cyber security in the connected vehicle environment is presented and then a security risk analysis approach, including a categorisation of connected vehicle vulnerabilities, is presented. Key industry trends are identified, including the integration of mobile phones and apps with vehicle systems. A number of developing cyber security standards and initiatives to improve security, including public key infrastructure, is also identified. A number of short case studies demonstrate connected vehicle vulnerabilities.
