As vehicles become information hubs servicing drivers and passengers, software security issues also become a vital concern in automotive software development. If the system is hacked, driver privacy and security can both be jeopardized.
While computer industries are familiar with hacker attacks, automotive embedded systems are just beginning to realize the potential consequences as cars become more connected. As the numbers of electronic control units (ECUs) and lines of software grow in modern vehicles, so does their vulnerability. And with shared connectivity protocols like Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and 3G, automotives can easily become targets of remote attacks—in a worst-case scenario, even fatal ones. That's why auto suppliers must work with trusted partners like Wind River®, with deep experience in highly secured software solutions, to prevent possible security breaches.
