Solutions for Automotive Cybersecurity

The rapidly growing connectivity of vehicles is opening up numerous opportunities for new functions and attractive business models. At the same time, the potential for cyber-attacks on vehicle networks is also growing. Such attacks threaten the functional safety of the vehicle and could cause financial damage.

Automotive manufacturers and suppliers rely on Vector as trusted partner. We support you with services, embedded software and tools for securing embedded systems against cyber-attacks.

Schematic graphic showing the three main use cases of Vector's Security products

Protect your product effectively and efficiently by taking advantage of Vector’s many years of experience and knowledge. We offer thorough consulting on security issues, from threat analysis to security strategies and architectures to the implementation and testing of all security functions. In the implementation of security functions in ECU software, Vector supports a wide range of hardware trust anchors from various hardware manufacturers. The well-known Vector tools are also designed for the entire development process of cyber-security-relevant systems.

Basic Essentials

Protecting vehicle functions against unauthorized access and manipulation is a central challenge for current and future ECUs. Vector has already been working closely with automotive OEMs and suppliers for a number of years in this area. By using our consultation services, we can make a contribution toward protecting your valuable data by using fast and resource-efficient cryptographic functions in the ECU.

 

The Goals of Security

Security lets you assure that information is transmitted fully and unchanged and that only certain receivers have access to this information. In attaining these goals, Security defines the following terms:

  • Authenticity: trustworthy data exchange between senders and receivers
  • Integrity: checking to ensure that information contents are complete and unmodified
  • Confidentiality: data is encrypted and can only be read by authorized nodes.

 

Application Areas of Automotive Cyber Security

Requirements for security of information in the vehicle are growing along with the complexity of vehicle functions. In addition to protecting internal vehicle data, the vehicle’s connections to the outside world in particular require heightened protection against unauthorized access. Some use cases that illustrate security needs:

Internal Vehicle Communications

  • Secure data storage
  • Authenticated frame transmission, e.g. by secure on-board communication (SecOC), to prevent manipulation of critical signals
  • Communication with tire monitoring systems (e.g. via Bluetooth)

Vehicle Connectivity:

  • Intelligent charging: secure communication with an electric charging station
  • Car2X/V2X: authenticated data transmission between vehicles and infrastructure
  • Internet access and hotspot for infotainment in the vehicle
  • Diagnostics, flash programming, remote access and software updates via the (mobile) radio network (OTA)

Services

Security Engineering

Reducing the issue of security to the selection of cryptographic algorithms is insufficient. Instead, security must be consistently taken into account from the concept phase to the after-sales processes. Vector provides you with support during the evaluation of your current processes (Vector SecurityCheck) and the introduction and application of security engineering processes. You benefit from the experience and competence of our security experts, who, among other things, also offer automotive-specific in-house training on security engineering.

    Concept Validation for Security Mechanisms

    Vector implements your security mechanisms within the framework of advance development projects with automotive technologies. This helps you to validate the qualification of your concepts for serial production and forestall integration problems.

    Development and Evaluation of Security Concepts

    Vector analyzes your security concepts and teams up with you to develop optimizations with an appropriate cost/benefit ratio. This gives you a solution that has been specifically tailored to your product. The following are typical projects we can execute:

    • Analyzing and improving existing products with respect to concrete attacks (incident response)
    • Developing and analyzing security concepts for specific security-relevant applications such as remote diagnostics, remote software updates, and data collection campaigns
    • Analyzing and assessing complete vehicle security architectures, including the development of anonymized benchmarks

    Advantages

    You benefit from our know-how in automotive technologies and our experience in the following areas:

    • Security engineering methods
    • Hardware trust anchors (SHE, HSM, TPM)
    • Cryptographic processes
    • Management of crypto material (keys, certificates)
    • Secure boot
    • Intrusion detection and intrusion prevention systems
    • Secure on-board and off-board communication

    Our experience in the integrated development of safety and security concepts will also be helpful to you.

    Embedded Software

    AUTOSAR Basic Software: MICROSAR

    Vector supports your ECU development by offering efficient modules that allow you to implement your security requirements. The MICROSAR basic software includes security modules that can be specifically tailored to meet your project requirements:

    • Crypto Service Manager (CSM)
    • Crypto driver [Crypto(SW)] according to the AUTOSAR standard based on an efficient crypto library
    • Drivers [Crypto(HW)] for different types of hardware trust anchors such as the Secure Hardware Extensions (SHE) and Hardware Security Modules (HSM) for leading microcontroller manufacturers
    • The Crypto driver as interface between the MICROSAR stack and the firmware MICROSAR.HSM from Vector
    • Interface for cryptographic algorithms (CRYIF)
    • Secure Onboard Communication (SecOC)
    • Transport Layer Security (TLS) client for secure communication over Ethernet

    Management and Configuration of Security Parameters

    The principle of the Security Manager - with and without access to OEM-specific backends
    The principle of the Security Manager - with and without access to OEM-specific backends

    Security mechanisms prevent unauthorized access to vehicles and ECUs. This means that vehicle communication cannot be accessed at first, even during development. The Security Manager offers valuable services for testing ECUs anyway.

    The Security Manager is the link between the Vector tools and the OEM-specific security implementations. With it, security functions can be used uniformly in the tools. No matter for which OEM you develop your control unit, you save time by only having to familiarize yourself once and then use the same "look and feel" also for different security concepts of the OEMs.

    The connection to the OEM security implementations is made via Security add-ons, which are managed in the Security Manager. In tests and simulations, the Security Manager carries out the security-relevant operations and provides the tool with the results.

    Testing of Security Mechanisms

    Fuzz-Testing with vTESTstudio and CANoe

    Despite careful analysis, design, and implementation of security mechanisms, it remains necessary to test them. Fuzz testing is one method of doing so that has been successfully used in IT for years. Vector offers the capability of efficiently and professionally executing fuzz testing in the automotive area with the help of vTESTstudio and CANoe.

    Advantages

    • Setup of fuzz tests with just a few clicks via drag-and-drop of test commands and database symbols
    • Convenient monitoring of the DUT through a range of predefined background checks
    • Test logic can be extended as desired through user code
    • Automatic reporting of test results in CANoe.

    Risk-based Cyber-Security in Practice

    Training situation

    Vector Consulting Services offers training classes about Automotive Cyber Security. The training provides an introduction to the fundamentals and practice of cyber security engineering. It introduces the basic techniques for specification, analysis, testing and proofing of security. Since there can be no absolute cyber-security, the focus of the training is on a risk-based approach and of the necessary consistent methodology.

    Testing of Security-Protected ECUs and Networks using the Security Manager

    The new course 'Security with CANoe.Ethernet and Security Manager' of the VectorAcademy starts with an overview of automotive security mechanisms and their implementation with the TLS, DTLS and IPsec protocols. The focus is the practical application of the Security Manager in CANoe.Ethernet for measuring, simulating and troubleshooting security-protected communication.
