V2X Announcements at CES 2019

Posted by Gene Carter on Jan 15, 2019 9:58:39 AM

The annual Consumer Electronics (CES) conference has become a major show for automakers and suppliers to highlight the latest and greatest technological advances in cars. The past few years, there have been many announcements and demonstrations of Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications, primarily using a Wi-Fi-based technology called Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC). The year marked a turning point, as a majority of the V2X announcements were based on Cellular V2X (C-V2X).

2018: A Year of Successful Growth for OnBoard Security

Posted by Gene Carter on Dec 18, 2018 10:07:14 AM

2018 has been an eventful year for OnBoard Security® and the markets we serve. The year started with a bang when OnBoard Security was spun off from Security Innovation®, becoming an independent company with the mission to help Automotive and IoT manufacturers stay ahead of the curve in cyber security. As an independent company, we are better positioned to focus on filling critical cyber security gaps in our target markets.

Securing Access to Your Car’s Data

Posted by Gene Carter on Oct 15, 2018 10:22:09 AM

The Onboard Diagnostics Port (OBD) has been required for all cars sold in the US since 1996 and in Europe since 2001. Prompted by the need to simplify the diagnosis of increasingly complex emission control systems, the OBD-II improved on previous implementations by providing standardized condition codes for the auto repair and tuning markets. Standardized access to this data has helped spawn a robust aftermarket of plug-in devices to allow consumers to monitor their teen drivers, earn discounts from insurers, or gain insights into the performance and health of their vehicles. Similar devices allow fleet managers to monitor the condition, performance and behavior of their vehicles. Nearly all of these dongles offer a wireless connection for the convenience of their customers. Unfortunately, a wireless connection also provides a potential path for hackers to gain entry to the car’s internal networks.

Protecting the Electric Vehicle Ecosystems from Cyber-Attacks

Posted by Gene Carter on Sep 20, 2018 11:41:20 AM

Last year Americans purchased slightly less than 200,000 electric vehicles which are supported by approximately 47,000 US charging stations, according to Statista.  The growth rate of electric vehicles is high and shows no signs of slowing down.

Connected Cars Security - Q&A

Posted by William Whyte on Feb 12, 2018 11:25:56 AM

OnBoard Security’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr. William Whyte, has been involved in Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications security for nearly 20 years. He is the editor of the IEEE 1609.2 security standard and has consulted for numerous automaker, the US Dept. of Transportation (DOT) and transportation organizations around the world. He is frequently asked to explain V2X security and give insights on potential vulnerabilities in the system.

What are Automated Vehicle Security Concerns?

Posted by Jonathan Petit on Jan 24, 2018 3:25:56 PM

At the Automated Vehicles Symposium (AVS) 2017, I addressed a plenary talk to the ~1,500 attendees, stating that even though it is unanimously considered as paramount, cybersecurity is still an after-thought. Or at least it still feels like it. Indeed, for the last two AVS editions, the cybersecurity breakout session reported similar open challenges, but no real changes have been seen since. In order to move the security needle, we took a different approach and didn't organize a cybersecurity breakout session. Instead, we identified that the missing components were the lack of inputs coming from the community of experts. To be able to build a more resilient system, cybersecurity experts should know about the limitations of each subsystem, and possible "nightmare scenarios".
