As part of the "10 years IT security" anniversary lecture series at Aalen University, Bastian Könings has given an introduction to the security of today's and future vehicles.
In his talk, he outlined known security issues and demonstrated existing attacks on cars. How these issues are being addressed in current development processes was discussed by showing the goals and approaches of penetration tests conducted by SCHUTZWERK in the automotive domain.
The talk concluded with the lookout on current ambitions to secure future autonomous cars which are addressed in the BMBF-funded research project SecForCARs. In this project, SCHUTZWERK is particularly involved in the development of new methods and tools for the security assessment of autonomous vehicles.
