Securing Connected Cars through Comprehensive Software Testing

Software is not new to the automotive industry. Cars have had low-level software commands for more than forty years (for example, airbags). However, automotive software, once limited to a few components within the vehicle, has become complex and interconnected, the result of new consumer-facing features. This has led to unstructured software growth, which, if left unchecked, opens the assembled vehicles to unforeseen vulnerabilities. As a result there is a need for greater software testing and assurance in the automotive industry today.

This white paper will show there is a need for greater software testing and assurance in the automotive industry today.
