The Connected Vehicle: Vulnerabilities, Future, and Security

Contributed by Cory Church

This paper will focus on the threats and vulnerabilities in the new field of connected cars. With most car manufacturers trying to push out connected cars as quickly as possible it is becoming apparent that they may not be putting as much time and money into the security of their vehicles. In the paper, several vulnerabilities that have been discovered and tested will be discussed and we will see how these we patched in the cars that were affected. We will also consider how companies can better secure their vehicles before putting them into mass production. Lastly, the paper will try to see if the benefits of having our cars connected to the internet out way the risks and what it means for the future of self-driving cars.
