Securing the Wireless Vehicle-to-Infrastructure Environment: Diagnostics and Firmware Updates
In recent years, information technology has entered the automobile domain. There is an emerging trend among automobile manufacturers to perform wireless diagnostics and firmware updates. This wireless vehicle-to-infrastructure environment, where the automobile manufacturer establishes a wireless connection to a vehicle, introduces a number of security threats. This book focuses on the security aspects of such environments. Security challenges for this and similar scenarios are first identified and analyzed. Based on such analyses and the challenges identified therein, specific solutions for the wireless vehicle-to-infrastructure environment are suggested. The security issues and solutions presented in this book may serve as a roadmap for future research in this field, and should be especially useful for professionals in Network Security and Vehicle Communication fields, or anyone else who may be interested in future computer security trends for vehicle-to-infrastructure environments.
