Tech alliance targets automotive cyber security
The more cars depend on the reliable function of electronics, the more important gets the protection against cyber attacks. Therefore, an alliance of OEMs, research institutions and commercial enterprises is going to develop measures to make vehicles cyber-proof.

With its focus on self-driving cars, SecForCARs stands out from previous research initiatives on IT security in automobiles. Networked cars offer many potential advantages in automated driving. For example, safety is increased if they warn each other of road damage or black ice. At the same time, however, the on-board electronics must be protected against external attacks. To this end, the project partners intend to research and evaluate new mechanisms.

SecForCARs considers a wide range of questions. How can networked and automated vehicles be developed more safely? How do you test such vehicles for security vulnerabilities? How do car manufacturers and technology partners ensure that any gaps that arise subsequently are closed as quickly as possible?

SecForCars will present its results in March 2021. The German Ministry of Education is providing a grant of 7.2 million euros.
