If some years ago the overall automotive industry pursued a decentralized vehicle architecture in which each ECU (Electronic Control Unit) fulfilled its own dedicated function, nowadays the car becomes more and more an extension of our life and we want to experience the comfort of our home. For that, a new user-centric architecture is required. As more complex functions make their way into automotive world and the vehicle becomes part of our electronic eco-system integrating more and more AI-driven functions, a more centralized approach where high computing power nodes are at the core is required.
During this session we will have a closer look at how a domain architecture is deployed in automotive industry and the challenges it brings. We'll get a glimpse at the increased attack surface (through various wireless networks) and have an in-depth look at different security layers and how to efficiently protect the future ECUs.
