Intel urges car industry to improve cyber security

The security vendor last week announced the formation of an Automotive Security Review Board (ASRB) in the US with the mission of making ‘security-by-design’ a part of the car production process. The review board will look at what could be compromised in modern cars, including the emerging category of driverless cars. It has also published a white paper that identified security measures for cars such as secure boot, trusted execution environments, tamper protection, isolation of safety critical systems, message authentication, network encryption, data privacy, behavioural monitoring, anomaly detection, and shared threat intelligence.
