In the wake of recent car hacks and security breaches, Intel has planned to establish an Automotive Security Review Board (ASRB) to alleviate the cyber security risks in the Internet-connected vehicles.
The recent cases of car hacks around the world have left the security developers in a frenzy. After the Fiat Chrysler fiasco, another researcher has hacked a self-driving car using laser and Raspberry Pi, and many follow suit.
The connected automobiles form an integral part of the Internet of Things and the researchers predict about 150 million passenger vehicles using, creating and then sharing the web-based data. Now that sums about 70% of all vehicles by 2020. These figures create a feeling of uneasiness with all the security breaches and the meager solutions.
To curb the cybersecurity risks and generate confidence among the consumers, Intel plans to establish an Automotive Security Review Board (ASRB). It won’t be just another review board, but a panel of top security experts in the cyber-physical systems from around the world. The ASRB team would perform stringent security tests and adopt the best practices and design recommendations in an effort to fix up the current cyber security flaws.
Intel is currently going big on upgrading the technologies and has recently created the world’s fastest Skylake processors and the Intel Thunderbolt 3.
The future holds progressive cyber-physical technologies and their incorporation in various extant devices as well. This calls for an efficient cyber security solutions thus Intel is strongly focusing on the connected cars.
The ASRB will be provided by an advanced development platform by Intel to conduct the security research and will publish its findings regularly. If you wish to be a part of the ASRB tam you can apply for participation at www.intel.com/automotive/asrb.
