System Security for the Connected Car

Put security in the driver’s seat

Modern vehicles increasingly serve as mobile access points to sensitive personal data, and manufacturers cannot afford to be complacent when it comes to vehicle security. Weaknesses in source code and hardware design, unpatched vulnerabilities, and inadequate system security processes can all put your vehicle—and your customers’ data—at risk.

Uphold security during development and testing

Our proven methodologies and automated solutions will strengthen your security posture at every stage of the system development lifecycle and across your software supply chain.

  • In design: Identify risky design flaws, control defects, and asset vulnerabilities.
  • In development: Detect third-party components, security vulnerabilities, license use, and critical defects and weaknesses in code.

Manage risk across the SDLC and supply chain

Our approach to automotive system security is grounded in the fundamentals of technology risk management. We support the distinct needs of the auto industry with these critical activities:

  • CAN bus (controller area network) analysis, fuzzing, capture, and reverse engineering
  • AUTOSAR (Automotive Open System Architecture)
  • Vehicle ecosystem threat modeling and architectural risk analysis
  • Embedded code reviews, penetration testing, and reverse engineering
  • Communications interface testing (onboard, wireless, dealer, manufacturing)
  • Telematics, infotainment, and head-unit testing
  • Certificate, encryption, key store, analysis, and testing
  • Program design and development
  • Embedded security training
