Cybersecurity & privacy in connected cars
Wednesday, 11 February 2015
The next generation of vehicles will be communicating with each other, with road-side systems, and will be continuously connected to various networks. Many services will be offered to the drivers via, both in car and handheld, devices such as smart phones, that will be seamlessly integrated into the vehicles’ systems. This whitepaper summarises the challenges and privacy & security work taking place in this area.
The whitepaper highlights the complexity of the problems, the communication technologies being used, and the security challenges faced and suggests some possible solutions. It focuses on the challenges, but also considers suggestions for in-depth research and solutions to work on.
After an introduction to the current situation and sketching an overview of the future situation, the whitepaper gives a short introduction to the subject of cooperative and connected mobility, and the necessity to focus on privacy and security. It follows up by discussing these topics to provide a perspective of the challenges recognised, possible solutions, and define future research.
