The Automotive Threat Landscape
The automotive threat landscape has transformed significantly in recent years. A major shift is how modern vehicles have become susceptible to the same risks that previously plagued only IT systems. Components that make a vehicle autonomous, like vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technologies, telematics, in-vehicle-infotainment (IVI), and sensors, introduce new risks and vulnerabilities. Beyond the vehicle is an even more expansive attack surface that goes back to the supply chain, a consistent focus for threat actors. Ransomware and data breaches are among the top challenges faced by the automotive industry. But as connected vehicles continue to drive into a new frontier, the industry is likely to face cyberthreats both familiar and unconventional with significant consequences.
The Automotive Attack Surface
Examples of potential cyberattacks against vehicles:
Attacks on OBD
Attacks on EV chargers
Attacks on IVI
Compromised mobile apps
Delivery of malicious OTA updates
