Multi-layer defense for connected cars
Modern cars connect to external networks, offering safer, more convenient and enjoyable driving experiences. But this can also leave cars vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Hackers can access systems, but the risk doesn't stop there. They can even gain control of the car. To mitigate these risks, NXP delivers a comprehensive, multi-layer approach for automotive security.
Each connected component has its own specific security challenges. The 4+1 framework provides the right level of protection and countermeasures to individually address the security needs for each one. This structured approach delivers multiple levels of defense, from the vehicle’s perimeter to the individual electronic control units (ECUs), eliminating vulnerabilities.
This whitepaper focuses on the security aspects and needs of individual Electronic Control Units (ECUs). Includes a review of basic concepts, attack categories and example countermeasures, and guidance on the level of protection needed for different domain ECUs.
A central gateway acts as a firewall between external networks and in-vehicle networks. It also plays an important role in the implementation of secure over-the-air firmware updates.
Smartkeys are purpose-built for secure transactions and deliver advanced functionality. This paper looks at how smartkeys enhance vehicle security, connectivity and personalization.
We have created a secure vehicle architecture that considers 4 security layers; interfaces, gateway, network and processing.
The automotive industry is rapidly evolving and NXP is at the forefront of this shift, helping transform the car from a simple mode of transport to a personalized mobile information hub.
