Spoofed signals could disable anti-collision systems on connected vehicles, report warns


Written by

Protecting the growing attack surface presented by an emerging market of connected, smart, and autonomous vehicles will only become more difficult, according to a new report from the Cloud Security Alliance. Spoofed signals sent from infrastructure and other vehicles could thwart braking, accelerator, or anti-collision systems, the report warns.

“For a safe and secure transportation system,” researchers concluded, “the [connected vehicle technology development] community must take a fresh look at the larger picture, and develop the policies, designs, and operations needed to incorporate security throughout the design.”
