Connectivity is used to increase traffic safety and to provide motorists with infotainment content, but connectivity also creates vulnerability. Increasingly connected vehicles are becoming targets for hackers that can access the vehicle’s electronic control units (ECUs), controller area network (CAN) bus systems, or even sensors through the cloud or other IT pathways. This is causing very real concerns about cyber security in modern vehicles, and how to protect driver safety and privacy. Irdeto is a security solutions provider for digital platforms and applications across multiple industries, including automotive. Since its inception in 1969, Irdeto’s software security technology has protected over 5 billion connected devices and applications.
