    In 2012, the OnStar system built into GM vehicles was used at the request of police to shut down a stolen car as it was being pursued. This incident and others made it clear that if the police can break into a car, so can thieves and other hackers. In order to assure safety and reliability, automotive code must also be secure from outside tampering. As a result, automotive OEMs are increasingly requiring developers to prove that their software meets the highest standards for security as well as safety.

    In this presentation, attendees will learn how isolation techniques and security measures from the embedded industry can be leveraged to protect modern vehicles from unwanted code or malicious attack. Best practices will be explained, technology examples provided, and questions answered.
