Our automotive cyber security services

Intellias understands the vital need to predict and disclose scenarios of cyber threats that might be launched from vehicle interfaces, remote network services, source code, in-vehicle data transmissions, or communications protocols. We perform automotive security audits throughout the software development life cycle as well as penetration testing using real vehicles to assure software quality and identify weak links within the hyper connected mobile–car–cloud ecosystem.

Penetration Testing for Connected Cars Security

Our client, one of the world’s biggest automotive companies that operates dozens of manufacturing facilities across Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas, has introduced extended IoT connectivity features into their entire range of passenger cars. But as with all things linked to the web, connected cars tend to be inherently hackable. We helped the company secure their IoT apps for connected vehicles by detecting potential vulnerabilities. Our team has gone through a series of security assessments and car penetration tests on their connected cars and the underlying ecosystem to ensure driver safety and privacy.

Security Assessment of a Car Head Unit

Our client is a German auto manufacturer with annual sales totaling millions of cars across five continents. Delivering their cars fully packed with high-tech gadgetry like engine controls, onboard diagnostics, active safety systems, and infotainment systems, the company meets the increased risk of hacks and privacy breaches. We enhanced the safety and digital security of such high-tech cars, performing a cybersecurity assessment of the installed infotainment system to determine overall susceptibility to intrusions into safety-critical car subsystems through insecure in-car data transmissions.

Security and privacy of next-generation cars

Eliminate remote car hacking

We’ve entered the digital era of self-driving cars, where locking the vehicle is no longer a sufficient security measure. Because autonomous cars connect to the internet and cloud platforms, their system architecture becomes the most vulnerable part. Developing secure automotive software is the answer to preventing cybercrime and malicious activity.

Car manufacturers have to take security measures to the next level. Automotive cybersecurity testing is critical for protecting vehicles and providing a safer driving experience. Intellias conducts risk assessments and checks software vulnerability at every stage of the development process to safeguard access to sensitive in-vehicle data.

Protect infotainment systems

The number of touchpoints for cyber attacks increases as connected services expand. By packing autonomous vehicles with advanced in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, car manufacturers escalate the risk of cybercrime. That’s why Intellias performs threat analysis throughout the entire development life cycle to build effective automotive security systems.

Our automotive security solutions focus on access control permissions, authentication mechanisms, and virus scans that can shield onboard IVI systems and sensitive data. Plus, we make sure that data isn’t compromised while it’s being processed. This helps us to define insecure data transmission channels and prevent unauthorized changes to autonomous systems.

Remove CAN bus vulnerabilities

Next-gen cars may have as many as 100 electronic control units (ECUs). Our task is to ensure secure connections among them. The Controlled Area Network (CAN) bus is a system that allows in-vehicle electrical components to communicate with each other. Being the heart of the car’s system, the CAN bus becomes the target for malicious attacks.

Our embedded security services seamlessly integrate with a car’s architecture and protect its mechanisms from hackers. We encrypt the CAN bus protocol to protect transmitted data. And thanks to embedded security systems that we install in ECUs, a vehicle’s network can block malicious traffic instantly before it affects the car.
