Autonomous Vehicle Security Needs From A Hacker’s Perspective

One of the main challenges with securing autonomous vehicles is protecting its linked applications in jailbroken phones or laptops, Laurie says. If an attacker were to jailbreak their own phone, they could see the application code while it was running, which includes how it talks to the backend server. They could then retrieve the application’s hidden data, such as credentials, and take full control of the code, vehicle and connected infrastructure. The vehicle itself can also be a prime target for attackers. Tools to launch... [Lire la suite]
