Driving Security Into Connected Cars: Threat Model and Recommendations

As rapid technological innovations continue to shape our world, autonomous or selfdriving vehicles are expected to become staples on roads within the next decade or two. Meanwhile, so-called semiautonomous, or partially automated, vehicles that communicate with other vehicles, cloud services, and road infrastructures with the goal of improving vehicle safety, assisting with driving decisions, and providing access to various applications will become even more common. Over time, the functionalities and capabilities of these connected cars will expand until fully autonomous vehicles are fully realized.
