With the ever-increasing codebase within the Connected Car, there is in increasing need to leverage software from outside sources. However, that software introduces tremendous risk, as can be witnessed by the increasing number of vulnerabilities and security exploits. As we add more autonomous capability to vehicles, those vulnerabilities become more than security vulnerabilities, but also become ever‑growing safety vulnerabilities. A security exploit on today's Connect Car can create catastrophic results. We will discuss experience from other safety-critical industries, and how automotive can enable use of software from multiple sources while still ensuring safety and security.
