Providing Security for Next-Generation Cars in an IoT system

Providing Security for Next-Generation Cars in an IoT system

New connected and mobile devices seem to be appearing everywhere. Public Sector organisations are integrating wearables into their service delivery, to improve efficiency and delivery of services.

For example, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore is testing the use of wearable devices as payment mechanisms throughout the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) system. The UK government has recently launched a programme as part of a £40m investment into IoT technology.

The automobile industry has been working to develop the next-generation car as a up-and-coming device in the world of IoT. These vehicles use cyber physical features to allow them to collect data from both physical and cyber realms. Intel Security Group describes that the example usages include:

■Advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS): Smart lighting control, adaptive cruise  control, lane departure warning, and parking assist.

■Advanced fleet management: Real-time telematics, driver fatigue detection, and

■Smart transportation: Vehicle-to-infrastructure communications, such as smart intersection, traffic light control, collision avoidance, and traffic management. This type of usage often involves frequent interactions between vehicles and transportation

■Autonomous driving: The ultimate goal of the next generation of vehicles is that driverless cars become a reality to achieve zero fatalities and/or collisions.

Earlier this summer, a video of a Jeep automobile system getting hacked went viral online. The car was hacked remotely by someone who was able to crack the security of the connected automobile. The video shows the car driving down the road without a person inside.

Following the video’s release, hysteria ensued within the connected automobile industry. This led automobile companies to ask security firms, such as Intel Security Group, about why this happened and how it can be prevented. This opened up a security dialogue about how to protect such connected cars operating in an IoT system.

The security community is currently looking at how to build security to be integrated into the processors and system of devices that are going into the internet of things (IoT). The Internet of Things consists of devices with many facets to them.

This has required security firms to prepare select strategies for operating these systems. As Thomas Moore, Intel Security Group stated, “Security is fundamental to the success of the product.” In providing security and support, they hope to contribute to the success of the organisation utilising these IoT devices to improve their service delivery.

Recently, Intel Security Group released “Automotive Security Best Practices: Recommendations for security and privacy in the era of the next-generation car” a best practices guide to next-generation vehicles. The report was developed due to the demand of the automobile industry to address the possible cyber security vulnerabilities of connected cars.

Following an IoT panel, OpenGov caught up with Lorie Wigle, General Manager, IoT Security, Intel Security group. We asked how they are working to provide support and resources to the organisations which are integrating IoT mechanisms into their service delivery. She said that the recent best practices guide was provided based on a demand of the industry and Intel provides alternative security strategies based on the device and the industry.

With this added support, public sector organisations may learn that security in the realm of IoT varies by device. As the security community is creating new strategies for recently introduced devices, there is much work to be done in protecting the data of IoT.
