What are the top cyber risks in the transportation industry?

The major risks to ground transportation systems stems from the mobile nature of automotive systems. The electronic control units, telemetric/transmission control units, speed control units, onboard diagnostics, navigation systems and consoles will require periodic software and configuration updates. The autonomous operations in modern automobiles will require high assurance of tamper-resistance in inter and intra-system real-time messaging. Isolation of vehicular and entertainment functions will be vital.

How do you improve transportation cybersecurity?

Improving transportation cybersecurity requires at least the following actions:

  • Securing the integrity of inter and intra-system messaging
  • Securing the digital secrets (keys) that offer such security countermeasures
  • Rotating the digital secrets at scale and as a remote maintenance activity—as a mitigation strategy for recovery on theft or recall
  • Tamper-resistant content delivery through the supply chain

What devices and systems are top cyberattack targets in the Transportation industry?

Perimeter-based defenses and threat detection technologies are not enough to defend connected cars against modern cyberattacks. Infotainment, powertrain, autonomous driving, safety, driver assistance, body electronics, navigation, communications, and Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices are vulnerable due to a lack of strong cryptographic controls, including: multi-factor authentication, secure boot, secure update, and secure, encrypted communications.
