Title: Risk Assessment - Security Analysis of Computer Systems on Modern Automobiles
Version: (None)
Sticky: No

This paper - Experimental Security Analysis of a Modern Automobile - is in the public domain, published jointly by the respective Departments of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle WA. and the University of San Diego, La Jolla, CA.

It was brought to the attention of Open Group members participating in the Cloud Computing Security-Cloud-SOA Working Group, which includes members of the Security Forum, by the presenter of a progress update on the Security-Cloud-SOA project, in The Open Group conference in Boston, July 19-22, 2010, in response to a discussion point.  Members present have since shown particular interest in understanding more about this security analysis, so we are providing a link to the paper here to facilitate members following up their interest.

It  highlights clear object lessons on the consequences of not having effective separation of computer systems operating in the same environment, and how inadequate risk assessments on the vulnerabilities of such systems in modern automobiles (and by implication, in any computer system) opens up significant opportunities for attacks - in the case of the modern automobile, attacks that the driver and passengers might justifiably consider unimaginable, with potentially devastating consequences to their safety.
