Automotive networks can benefit from security layers

Automotive networks can benefit from security layers
Last year, at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas, Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek reported their security research on a Jeep Cherokee. They were able to remotely break into the system and take control of steering, brakes and other safety critical systems on the vehicle, as well as systems not normally considered safety critical such as the infotainment unit. By Tim Radzykewycz.

ECU consolidation in practice

By Georg Doll, General Manager of automotive solutions at Wind River, an Intel company The number of ECUs you’ll find in even the most standard of car models is staggering. There has long been a drive to consolidate ECUs but it is not just the number of them that is the challenge. The complexity of new functions such as adaptive cruise control, blind spot detection and hill start assist further complicate the software development and testing process. There is also an increasing appreciation and adoption of safety standards for the functional aspects of software used for some of these functions. ECUs used for different functions may way have different Automotive Safety Integrity Levels and ISO 26262 requirements compared to other ECUs; this can be a major consideration when reviewing the potential of consolidating two or more ECUs. Having a separate ECU for each function also allows it to maintain its own criteria regarding dynamic behaviour, security and functional safety requirements. Needless to say, testing and debugging more complex ECU environments will bring certification challenges.
