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".

Secure Crypto Key Management for Automotive

Posted by Gene Carter on Nov 1, 2017 12:21:38 PM

Car makers use cryptographic keys for a variety of purposes, including Over-The-Air (OTA) software updates, security immobilizers, inter-module communications, and Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication security. Key Management Systems (KMS) are very complex, as the manufacturer has to manage dozens of keys for each car model, both at production and when new components are introduced during repairs, and they must maintain these keys over the long lifetime of a car. Key Management is a daunting task.
