Symantec releases smart system to protect connected cars

Symantec Corp has launched an anomaly detection system to safeguard connected vehicles from zero-day attacks and other unprecedented issues.

 

The cybersecurity firm said the Anomaly Detection for Automotive system brings its existing security and sophisticated analytics capability across complex networks to vehicles. It warns that while new technologies promise to enhance the driving experience, these advancements also create avenues of attack for hackers that can endanger drivers and passengers. According to the analyst Gartner there will be 220 million connected cars on the road by 2020.

 

“As connected automobiles become the norm, security issues have already drawn attention,” said Christian Christiansen, VP of security products at analyst IDC. “Driven by opportunity, manufacturers and their suppliers will partner with cybersecurity vendors on securing connected cars as they would with any other networked endpoints such as mobile devices and laptops.

 

“Keeping security top of mind will not only help ensure the safety of drivers and passengers but also build trust in the car manufactures and the overall Internet of Things ecosystem,” he continued.

 

Anomaly Detection for Automotive uses machine learning to provide passive in-vehicle security analytics that monitor all controller area network (CAN) bus traffic without disrupting vehicle operations, learn what normal behaviour is and flag anomalous activity that may indicate an attack and take remedial action to block it, claims Symantec.

 

Other benefits of the system are said to be: learning the vehicle’s behaviour in a deeper, more precise way, enabling automakers to see previously unseen attacks; automatically prioritising incidents based on perceived criticality and risk; automatically detecting anomalies without requiring manufacturers to set rules or create policies; and using minimal memory and CPU power with an analytics solution built from the ground up for vehicles.

 

“Automotive security threats have gone from theory to reality,” said Shankar Somasundaram, senior director of product management and engineering at Symantec. “The infrastructure and technology that already helps protect billions of devices and trillions of dollars now protects the car. We’re building long-term comprehensive security all while delivering ground-breaking protection for cars today.”
