Automotive Ethernet is increasingly becoming the communication standard for the next generation of digitally connected vehicles. Ethernet-based electrical systems allow for larger volumes of data and higher bitrates. But they also offer new attack vectors. At the same time, increasing automation of driving functions means that any security loopholes harbor even greater risks.
On May 15 and 16, STATION-Berlin will be a hotspot for everyone involved in the development of connected products and solutions on the Internet of Things. Over these two days, Bosch ConnectedWorld 2019 will offer exciting lectures, interesting exhibits about the IoT, hackathons, and opportunities to exchange ideas.
Automated driving systems are designed to make driving safer and more comfortable. However, the increasing connectivity of safety-relevant functions and the integration of new technologies into vehicles pose new challenges for IT security. The use of Ethernet for in-vehicle communication enables much higher payloads and transmission rates, and the integration of powerful microprocessors offers higher performance. However, both of these technologies are well-known in the traditional world of IT, with attack vectors familiar to hackers.
