In this presentation, Gary and I will discuss a number of the of critical concerns facing the automotive industry as vehicles become more connected.  A number of the vulnerabilities and risks inherent in the automotive ecosystem will be highlighted. We will discuss a trust management approach to understanding and securing the interactions among automotive ecosystem elements and stakeholders.  Our approach will encompass not only the OEMs producing gas, hybrid and electric vehicles, but also the smart infrastructure and supporting service businesses necessary for connectivity to improve the automotive experience in a private and secure manner.  Most importantly, we make a number of suggestions as to how Intertrust can benefit from participating in this emerging market opportunity.
