Firewalling Threats for Connected Cars

September 10, 2019

Register For This Web Seminar

Online – Sep 10, 2019 
15:00 – 16:00 Europe/Berlin


Vehicle network security requirements are becoming more stringent with vehicle systems facing hostile adversaries through a variety of entry points. White-hat hackers have demonstrated the ability to gain remote access to dashboard functions and the transmissions of connected vehicles and in response to the posed threats, governments around the globe are legislating liabilities for self-driving vehicles – US SELF DRIVE act of 2017 is an example. That makes a firewall a vital component of a multilayered approach to vehicle security as well as overall vehicle functional safety and reliability.

What You Will Learn

●      Internet-based threat analysis over packets with malicious contents, denial of service (DoS) attacks, broadcast storms and packet flood conditions.
●      Firewall design considerations including rule-based filtering, stateful packet inspection, deep packet inspection, threshold filtering and protocol filtering.
●      Automotive use-cases for firewall incorporation into relevant ISO/AUTOSAR standards.
●      Practical design examples from in-production OEM flagship projects over firewall integration into existing ECU systems.
