In 2014, IBM published a point of view on automotive security, “Driving security: Cyber assurance for next-generation vehicles,” which introduced the “Design, Build, Drive” approach for the automotive security lifecycle. It’s time to dig deeper. While it’s logical to tackle each phase in the lifecycle, starting with Design, most conversations around vehicle security quickly turn to the threat to in-service vehicles and data privacy, both of which are aspects of the Drive phase. Consequently, we’ll focus on this phase, the one consumers can most readily identify with, and evaluate ways in which automakers can engineer technology to prevent exploits, detect suspicious behavior and respond by recovering gracefully and safely.
