Cyber Security and Resilience of smart cars; Good practices and recommendations.
In this report ENISA defines smart cars as systems providing connected, added-value features in order to enhance car users experience or improve car safety. It encompasses use cases such as telematics, connected infotainment or intra-vehicular communication. The report excludes Car-to-car as well as autonomous vehicles as these technologies are not in use today. Practices discussed in this report concern not only passenger cars but also commercial vehicles (such as busses, coaches etc) and aim to map the current threats that passengers and drivers are exposed every day to. The goal is to secure smart cars today for safer autonomous cars tomorrow.
Over the last few years, there have been a number of publications on attacks targeting automotive systems, and in particular smart cars. An attack on a smart car would threaten the safety and privacy of passengers and other citizens. These threats are already having a big impact on car manufacturers, with millions of cars being recalled because of their vulnerability, not to mention the effects of the widespread media coverage of the issues.
