Connected car security

The increasing number of smart features built into cars opens door to a serious threat – hacker attacks. Because connected cars are linked with the Internet and its crucial parts are interconnected over a network, adversaries have the potential to remotely access and manipulate the data being exchanged leading to a number of problems, such as leaked personal information, overcoming vehicle’s security mechanisms, or even full remote control of the car.

This white paper describes the potential threats in modern connected cars, the ways hackers attempt to tamper with the data and software, and what are the solutions to these threats. Finally, this paper will focus on Intertrust’s robust solution to protecting connected cars—a set of software tools that are intended to increase application-level security and render hacker attacks extremely difficult and expensive to execute.
