Today, IT security poses enormous challenges for automobile manufacturers. The number of fully connected vehicles is increasing every year. Within these vehicles more and more complex software solutions are being developed, which at the same time offer a wide range of possible targets for cyber criminals. Due to the great competition within the automotive industry and the increasing pressure to create new innovations, the advantages of innovative solutions are always in the foreground. The aspect of automotive security is of secondary importance here and fatally gets more and more into the background.
From the perspective of Automotive Security, further developed security concepts are indispensable for car manufacturers and suppliers to be able to use all advantages of digitalization and thus new innovations in the fully networked vehicle efficiently and profitably.
To ensure the protection of vehicles, road traffic and passengers, software, data and functions must be protected against manipulation and access by unauthorized persons.
