Connected Cars. What About Security? (A30a)

Nowadays, the car landscape includes a wide number of technology improvements focused on creating an easier, more comfortable, secure and safe driving experience. Some of these improvements could be all wireless access (Short-range such as Bluetooth, Remote Keyless Entry, RFIDs, Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems, WiFi, etc or Long-range wireless access such as GNSS, GSM, UMTS, LTE) or physical access (e.g. Airbag PWM signal for eCall, eCall keys, Gigabit Ethernet). Not all of these improvements are made with the necessary attention to security. Currently new cars are highly vulnerable—it is possible to for malicious users to initiate control remotely in some cases. This presentation tries to give a clear picture of the weaknesses associated with new systems implemented in cars, based on the findings obtained as part of a deep vulnerability analysis performed, following the common criteria methodology.
