DHS funds research to harden vehicles against hacking

To help develop technology to defend government and privately-owned vehicles from cyberattacks, the Department of Homeland Security awarded $1.4 million to New York University for its Securely Updating Automobiles program.

The NYU team will build a secure update system for automobiles that will provide resilience to attacks even if the servers of a dealership, software vendor or automobile dealer are compromised.

Because advances in networking, computing, sensing and control systems have enabled rapid growth in cyber-physical systems, it’s critical that security be built into emerging cyber-physical designs, DHS said.
