Use Case

Vehicle Notification Services
Manufacture recalls
Scheduled maintenance
Cloud based maintnance history
Vehicle diagnostics

Security – Exposure
Traditional Computing
– Security is simple, platform is isolated to a degree
– More exposure to malware due to single target
– Availability of data also at-risk due to single point
of failure

Cloud Computing
– Attached device, or vehicle is distributed data
– Possible exposure of corporate providers
– Availability not an issue, generally
Security – Attack Vectors
Vehicle-attached Cloud Attack Vectors
– Remote (via IP) using vehicle-unit accepted
protocols and exploiting known vulnerabilities
– Locally (via external media) using malformed or
bad data to exploit local weaknesses

– Certificate-based (X.509) Authentication Between

Providers and Vehicle units
– Storage Isolation and Data Execution Prevention
on Removable Media (read-only access)
Security – Privacy
Data Privacy in Vehicle-attached Cloud
– GPS position & location information
– Mileage, driving habits and fueling statistics
– Exposure to cameras or other vehicle-attached

User Control
– Implement Fully-exposed User Security Control
Features to allow user to select/de-select
• Implement Any Features as “Disabled by default”
– Context menus explain benefits & drawbacks of
enabling specific features
Exposure: Traditional Computing vs. Cloud/Attached Appliance Computing
Attack Vectors & Mitigations
Data Privacy & User Control
Electronic Control Units (ECU)
Commonly more than one ECU make up what is most commonly called a Cars Computer.
