DHS makes more investments in automotive cyber research

The Department of Homeland Security continues to fund research into automotive cyber security, with new grants announced for the University of Michigan and HRL Laboratories.

The Michigan team was awarded $1.2 million to develop a method for convenient, safe and reliable over-the-air updates for government and privately owned vehicles, with the goal of creating a comprehensive industry standard that includes design specs, reference source code and best practices for integration, testing and deployment.

HRL Laboratories will receive $2.5 million to design a system to detect cyber-physical inconsistencies that would provide an early warning in case of an attack.

On Oct. 20, DHS announced funding to researchers at New York University to design, build and demonstrate deployment of a practical secure update system for automobiles.
