Blueprint for Secure Driverless Cars

Robust Cyber Security is an intrinsic requirement with all connected technology in our daily lives, and it is especially challenging with new cutting edge technological advances. Connected and driverless cars promises to be one greatest technological advances of the century, as such fascinates and excites yet at the time there are concerns. Getting cyber security right from the outset will be critical to the success of this industry, as vulnerable connected computer controlled cars is a matter of life and death. Securing the ever increasing sophistication and complexity of computers that control cars is certainly not for the faint hearted.

The car industry recognises trust and security go hand in hand, so in league with the likes of Aeris, Intel and Uber, the industry formed an industry wide organisation called FASTR - Future of Automotive Security Technology Research.  FASTR seeks to enable automotive security by driving cybersecurity across the entire vehicle manufacturing supply chain, to ensure smart cars will be secure from cyber attack.

FASTR recently produced an interesting infographic covering their approach to cyber security, it also has great stats about the car's of today and the cars of tomorrow. If you are interested in learning more about FASTR's approach, check out their Manufesto
