A Path to Automotive Cybersecurity
Cybersecurity for vehicles is especially challenging because human lives may be at stake, notes Elliott Garbus, vice president of Intel Corp.’s Internet of Things Group.
That’s why Intel has created an Automotive Security Review Board of experts to evaluate options and make recommendations, Garbus says. The board’s input will be used to update the company’s publicly available white paper.
Lorie Wigle, vice president of the Internet of Things Security Solutions, says the first edition of the white paper focuses on three key areas: securing the technology itself, creating secure processes and supply chains for product development and building in an ability to protect a vehicle against unknown threats in the future.
The good news, she adds, is that the challenge is solvable and there are solutions that can be applied today.
Wind River Systems Inc.’s software for the Internet of Things is a natural fit for the auto industry’s move into advanced driver assist features and autonomous driving, says Peter Brown, chief automotive architect.
It’s called “MONET Technologies Corporation” and it is a joint venture company that is focused on “new mobility services,” a.k.a., “Mobility as a Service” (MaaS), services that will be initially rolled out in Japan starting in the next decade, including autonomous services.
The latest wave of manufacturing execution systems takes advantage of the Internet of Things, leading to simpler and faster implementations and truly real-time data analysis, decision-making, and problem resolution.
