Title: Vehicle Cyber Security: Where the Rubber Meets the Code
Modern vehicles include an average of 100 million lines of code and 60 control units. With automotive manufacturers adding an increasing array of safety, entertainment, navigation, and autonomous driving features, the potential threat vectors for vehicle cyber attacks are rapidly expanding. In this talk, Dr. Stacy Prowell, Director of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Vehicle Security Center, will discuss the current state of security, the issues to be addressed, and some of the work being done to address these issues.
