Modern automotive vehicles are becoming a collection of interconnected embedded subsystems, where the mechanical parts are either replaced or controlled by electronic ones, transforming the vehicle into a mobile information system. Unfortunately, the industry standards for in-vehicle communication have not caught up with common computer security and privacy policies, or in many cases privacy invasive approaches are being taken. The scope of this talk is firstly to illustrate the security and privacy risks that modern drivers are exposed to. We then discuss how some of them can be addressed, by redesigning the network structure of the vehicle, providing more security, safety and privacy to the drivers and passengers. The talk will conclude with some open issues and ideas for future work.
