Consumers want to be connected on the go. This means in-vehicle digital experiences are fast becoming a key differentiator for vehicle manufacturers. As our journeys become increasingly digitally dependant, automotive cybersecurity has to be an integral part of new experience design. Software is a core part of the industry’s future, but it also increases the risk of cyber threats against the vehicle.

These threats are no longer theoretical. While the automotive industry has been debating the level of security they need, we are already in this market, providing in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) security and telematic security.

Regulation is forcing the auto industry to focus its attention on cybersecurity. UN legislation (UNECE WP 29) will require security to be designed into all vehicles from 2022 onwards and this places automotive cybersecurity at the heart of the connected vehicle design.

Securing connected cars of the future

Autonomous and driver-assisted cars are a key part of the industry’s future. However, as the vehicle architecture evolves, the number of points of attack and potential vulnerabilities increases. This places a greater focus on protecting all systems within the vehicle.

Simply protecting the IVI and telematics control unit will no longer be enough to provide the robust level of security the cars of tomorrow will need.

Moving to a TEE-based approach when protecting sensors, gateways and Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS), will provide greater flexibility in the overall cybersecurity architecture. Using a TEE provides the option of removing both HSMs and cost, while increasing the range of supported security applications.
