Security aspects of the in-vehicle network in the connected car
Paper in proceedings, 2011
In this paper, we briefly survey the research with respect to the security of the connected car, and in particular its in-vehicle network. The aim is to highlight the current state of the research; which are the problems found, and what solutions have been suggested. We have structured our investigation by categorizing the research into the following five categories: problems in the in-vehicle network, architectural security features, intrusion detection systems, honeypots, and threats and attacks. We conclude that even though quite some effort has already been expended in the area, most of it has been directed towards problem definition and not so much towards security solutions. We also highlight a few areas that we believe are of immediate concern.
