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.


The strategy will require at least:

  • 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

Transportation: Automotive Platform Protection


In the automotive industry, risk is measured in terms of safety and reliability of the systems. While data privacy is important, physical human safety and system uptime drive the security needs of connected cars.

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.
