It Takes a Village to Secure the Connected Car

Thursday, September 24th, 2015


Why to take a value-chain approach to connected car security.

A gulf exists within the connected car value chain when it comes to connected car security, as revealed by automaker responses to recent high-profile connected vehicle hacks. Consider the opposite responses taken by Tesla and Chrysler Fiat when their vehicles were hacked. Tesla mitigated the hack by promptly pushing an over-the-air (OTA) update—done.

Chrysler’s solution requires physical software updates to 1.4 million vehicles—either at a dealership or via the owner downloading software to a USB drive and then installing it in the car. This process leaves Chrysler struggling with the cost, long timelines and non-compliance issues related to its recall.

These responses bring the difference between “traditional automotive” and “Silicon Valley” approaches to securing the connected car into sharp relief. Both companies faced the same problem —hacked—but only one completely solved it. Security solutions that bridge these two realms and bring them into alignment are clearly needed.

Automakers Band Together for Car Security

This is the goal of a new organization announced in August 2015 by the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers (AAM). AAM is setting up an “Information Sharing and Analysis Center” (ISAC) which “will serve as a central hub for intelligence and analysis, providing timely sharing of cyber threat information and potential vulnerabilities in motor vehicle electronics or associated in–vehicle networks,” per AAM vice president for vehicle safety Rob Strassburger.

ISAC will serve as a clearinghouse and brain trust for securing the connected car and mitigating malware and other security threats. The AAM ISAC should be up and running before the end of 2015.

Connected Car Threats Arise Across the Value Chain

While ISAC’s membership will initially be limited to auto manufacturers, AAM intends to expand the organization to include component suppliers, telecommunications providers and technology companies. This type of comprehensive approach to vehicle security is clearly needed, as security threats can arise at any step along the value chain—and it can be difficult to pin down who’s “responsible” for vehicle intrusions. In the case of the Jeep hack, Harmon is being sued over purported security defects in its infotainment head unit, while Fiat Chrysler pointed the finger at Sprint with assertions that the company’s cellular network is insecure.
Security threats can also be introduced through any physical connection, including the OBD-II port, USB ports and the EV charging port. Even aftermarket accessories can introduce security threats: Progressive Insurance’s “Snapshot” OBD-II driver monitoring device was recently hacked, allowing intruders access to a car’s drivetrain and brakes.

Layers of Connected Car Security

As the ISAC begins its work, participants will need to consider multiple layers of connected car security. These include:

  • securing data and communications within the vehicle
  • securing data transmitted to and from the vehicle
  • securing any aftermarket accessories that have access to the CAN bus
  • and securely updating vehicle software and firmware when needed.

In-Vehicle Proactive vs. Reactive Security Modes

Inside the vehicle, electronic control units (ECUs) must be secured using both proactive and reactive security measures. Proactive security monitors a vehicle’s CAN bus for unauthorized messages, such as reprogramming instructions sent to an ECU from a compromised/hacked ECU from which malicious code is trying to spread.
Cloud-based solutions that provide proactive vehicle security have started coming to market, in order effectively secure connected vehicles and enhance vehicle safety. One such platform is Movimento OTA, an over-the air programming and security platform for connected vehicles introduced last June at TU-Automotive Detroit.
Movimento’s connected car client sits within the car on one of the ECUs and monitors all of the messages passing though the CAN bus. When it sees an ECU reprogramming messages that did not originate from within the platform, the Movimento client stops them in transit and reports back to the Cloud which car and ECU were attacked—and by what.

Reactive security allows car owners and mechanics to change whatever software-controlled variables they want, within reason. Hobbyists trying to get that last ounce of performance can have at it —though certain changes that would cause the vehicle to malfunction may be blocked. Owner changes and preferences are logged under a reactive security scheme, so they can be rolled back in case of problems, and for diagnostic use when an owner brings a “tweaked” car in for service.

Data Security

In addition to securing data within a vehicle, data traveling to and from a vehicle must also be secured. This is one of many security defects found in the Progressive Snapshot: the device did not encrypt sensitive information about vehicle location and driver behavior before transmitting it over a cellular network—potentially leaving it vulnerable to being seen or stolen while in transit.

Data coming into the vehicle must be encrypted to prevent it from being tampered with during transmission. This data must also be validated as coming from a trusted source, and that trusted source also must be tightly secured. A quick way to infect millions of vehicles would be to invade the platform that updates the vehicles’ software and firmware.

Threats from Aftermarket Accessories

Security threats arising from Progressive’s Snapshot go beyond “in the clear” storage and transmission of sensitive driver data. Oddly, even though Snapshot is a purpose-built connected vehicle device, the Digital Bond Institute (DBI) found last June that Snapshot “was designed with no security features.” Per Dale Peterson, DBI Founder and CEO, “[Snapshot] wasn’t even based on basic security coding practices. It’s a house that has no doors, no windows and no fences, with valuables inside.”
The hackers who recently disabled the brakes of a Corvette by sending malicious code to its Snapshot did not discover and exploit a weakness in Snapshot’s security architecture. There was no security architecture to breach. Hopefully, the work that ISAC takes up will include security standards for aftermarket devices such as the Snapshot—or any other device that connects to a vehicle’s OBD-II port.

OTA vs. Plug-In OBD-II Software Updates

Lastly, how software updates are applied to connected cars presents another security risk: OTA updates (Figure 1) also completely eliminate the opportunity for malware to enter the vehicle through a physical connection. Physical connections create a channel for malware to enter any computer, including a connected car.
As long ago as May 2013 , it’s been public knowledge that cars can be hacked through an EV charging station—the last place an owner would expect a malware threat to arise. Malware can also be introduced to a vehicle through the USB and OBD-II ports.
ISAC should focus on the basics

Movimento applauds the AAM’s efforts to bring collaboration and transparency to securing the connected car, and looks forward to joining the ISAC as soon as membership opens to automotive technology providers. In the meantime, ISAC will be well-advised to focus on the basics: maintaining proactive and reactive security measures within a connected vehicle, securing data in the vehicle and in transit, developing security standards for all connected vehicle components including aftermarket accessories that have access to the CAN bus, and limiting the paths malicious code may take to enter a vehicle by requiring over-the-air software updates.

Multiscreen Challenges and Opportunities for Vehicle Designers

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Adopting automotive UI technologies with agility.

Drivers and passengers expect to connect and synchronize their own mobile devices to in-car systems and access them from the dashboard as well as to make comfort adjustments within the vehicle just as easily using their smartphones and tablets. While devices may run various operating systems and versions, users expect the experience of using these devices within the vehicle to be seamless.

At the same time that this user expectation of seamlessness is becoming the norm, the car is becoming an IT platform in which the in-vehicle systems expose Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to third-party devices that allow the development of additional services without the direct involvement of the car OEM (Figure 1). These trends generate significant challenges.

F1
Figure 1: In-vehicle systems expose APIs to third-party devices.

Even when an OEM has control of a single compute platform, such as the embedded microcontroller in a dashboard display, modifications to the application to take advantage of new user interface (UI) techniques can involve considerable rework at the API level. When making changes to suit a new look-and-feel, developers have to ensure that each successive update does not impact performance or introduce faults. This problem becomes far more complex when the OEM has to consider interaction with myriad different user devices.

Abstraction as the Answer

What is needed is some way to abstract the details of the underlying operating system to allow a single codebase to run across multiple targets. Attempts have been made to provide cross-platform portability for applications on the desktop at the language level, but they have limitations. Java, for example, has broad support, but most implementations fail to adapt to the specific requirements of individual devices along with introducing performance overhead through a virtual machine.

The broad adoption of web-enabled apps and online content offers one possibility: using web technologies, such as the HTML5 that consists of HyperText Markup Language (HTML), Cascading StyleSheet (CSS) version 3 and different JavaScript based script programs. HTML5 makes it possible to deploy rich media applications on any mobile platform that has full, consistent support for the standard. But HTML5 has some key drawbacks. For example, HTML5 as such isn’t designed for effective UI design. What’s more, web browsers are still inconsistent in their rendering of HTML5, and the performance is difficult to get to the level of native systems. In automotive systems, there is no room for any performance overhead.

HTML5’s approach is, however, attractive, particularly for multiscreen applications as the technology would be usable on web browsers as well. HTML5 applications segregate the core business logic from the user interface. Changes in interfaces can be represented by the use of different presentation layers that reflect the differences in target screen or platform, from the size of the display through to the types of interaction that it supports. In this way, a presentation layer developed for one operating system can be treated differently from that needed for a smartphone, for instance. The HTML5 methodology also emphasizes responsive web design targeting an optimal viewing experience for a certain screen size by just designing one flexible presentation.

Seamlessness

If well-designed techniques are used, the two layers can communicate seamlessly with each other and provide the event-driven responsiveness that users now expect from user interfaces. What is required is an applications framework that not only supports the separation of business logic from presentation, but also streamlines tuning the user interface to each target device. The goal is not to use the same code across all targets but rather to maximize the amount of common code while still supporting responsive user interfaces.

For example, although each target operating system will expose networking services in its own way, a high-level applications framework can hide those differences through the use of common services. The same API can be offered across supported target platforms and similar APIs extend to cloud services and access to databases as well as to common connected-device functionality such as cameras and GPS-based location services. A good architectural design allows direct access and easy integration to the native services of the system, such as the automotive buses and controls, but is careful not to couple these too tightly—possible defects in the UI must not affect any of the underlying systems.

F2

Figure 2: A cross-platform framework such as Qt enables taking a technical approach forward to true multiscreen approaches where the same service or application is used everywhere: the user’s home computer, tablet, car and his smartphone. Even though the same code works as-is across platforms Qt internally separates the declarative UI design from the imperative UI logic.

Application frameworks have been employed on desktop applications, often using a widget-centric infrastructure. Traditionally, these techniques employ callbacks, which are pointers to C or C++ functions. When a UI event occurs, the callback uses the pointer to notify the function of a change. There are two problems with this approach. First, the programmer has to ensure that the callback is made using the right argument, which complicates maintenance and can lead to errors being introduced as the UI is changed. Second, the technique calls for the interface and business-logic code to be tightly connected as each callback needs to know exactly which function to access.

Dodging a Maintenance Headache

Now coming onto the market are high-level applications frameworks, such as that offered by The Qt Company, which take a more flexible approach to signalling across the logic-interface boundary (Figure 2). This can be achieved using a “signals and slots” mechanism. Under this paradigm, functions register their interest in signals by adding themselves to slots. A signal can be connected to more than one slot, making the system more flexible than callbacks. And the technique is type-safe, eliminating one of the biggest maintenance headaches of using callbacks.

F3

Figure 3: Although each target device and operating system will expose networking services in its own way, a high-level application framework makes those differences transparent through the use of common services. Such a framework makes it possible to re-use the same technology and even code directly for multiple screens. In addition, the framework can be used to expose an API for additional software services, making the Automotive IVI a platform itself.

Using those slots, signals of interest pass along to any interested function so, for example, a mapping application can check GPS position, and a separate weather application can use the same course and position data to check for possible road-condition problems ahead. The same business logic works whether the client runs in the dashboard environment or in an app developed by a car OEM for a smartphone (Figure 3).

By paying careful attention to software architecture and by embracing the concept of a portable multiscreen-oriented software framework, many of the challenges designers of automotive dashboard and infotainment confront can be eased. A move towards framework-based development enables car manufacturers to become more agile in their adoption of user-interface technologies while preserving the carefully planned and documented software that these applications require.

GreenPeak launches its first Smart City application for assisted car parking in China

Friday, September 11th, 2015

Partnership with Dusun Electron introduces low cost, intelligent car park application to reduce parking congestion and to increase revenues for car park operators

GreenPeak Technologies, the leading low power RF semiconductor company, and Dusun Electron Ltd, a rapidly growing electronic company focusing on development of wireless internet technology and pioneering the Internet of Things (IoT) industry in China, today announced their partnership with the launch of their first Smart City assisted parking application that addresses the growing parking problems in China’s larger cities.

The number of cars in Beijing has grown quickly as urbanization and modernization have progressed. Today, the capital has over 5 million registered vehicles and only 1.5 million available parking spaces. Chinese ministries are launching major programs focused upon achieving sustainable urban development. The Chinese Smart City initiatives, driven by national and local governments, are intended to improve efficiency of cities and aim to achieve environmental, economic and social sustainability through the systematic integration of ICT solutions into their planning, design, operations and management.

GreenPeak Technologies and Dusun Electron have launched a Smart Parking application for smart phones that guides car drivers to an available parking space. Based on individually selected criteria such as the walking distance to the destination from the parking space and the parking tariff selected, the application guides the user to the nearest available parking space in just a few clicks. Inside the parking lot, every parking space is equipped with a wireless sensor that detects if the parking space is empty and reflects availability in floor and row signage on car guidance displays. GreenPeak Technologies has developed the sensor technology, the radio chip and the networking technology. Building on this, Dusun Electron has developed the cloud infrastructure and Smart Parking application. The gateway sends the parking availability information to the cloud environment where the data is analyzed for display in the mobile app and parking location signage.

GreenPeak’s solution provides the low cost communication system and easy to install software. One of the GreenPeak advantages is the long battery life of over 5 years for the wireless sensors. GreenPeak’s patented radio technology guarantees best range and optimal signal quality, even in concrete and steel parking lot structures.

The benefits for car park operators are significant: low cost installation due to absence of wiring, low cost maintenance due to long battery life, easy and reliable operation due to the self-learning algorithms in the sensors, and high detection reliability. Additionally, the system provides opportunities to further enhance the application with value added services (e.g. flexible/peak pricing and online reservation system) to further optimize revenues. The first implementation of the system is developed for use in the Smart City program of the city of Wuxi, Jiangsu province.

“The Smart Car Parking system is an integrated solution that combines gateways, sensors, cloud infrastructure and the Smart Parking application. A single gateway can connect up to 200 sensors, which is a cost effective solution as the price of our sensors start at $15 per unit and gateway at $25,” says Tiny CAO, Vice President of Dusun Electron. “The Smart Parking system is a very important cooperative project with GreenPeak. Based on the Dusun Electron Smart Parking system for big data analysis, we can provide practical and detailed comprehensive data for urban construction parking management to urban government, which includes usage rates for city parking areas, density of parked city vehicles, analysis of expected garage building requirements, etc.”

“A critical key to solving congestion problems is by better organizing traffic. Streamlining the process for people to find parking spaces is essential for enhanced and controlled vehicle routing and reducing unnecessary traffic. This new system requires a small investment and provides a tremendous improvement,” says Cees Links, Founder and CEO of GreenPeak Technologies. “Working with an experienced partner like Dusun Electron allows us to offer an effective total solution and a large improvement on the parking experience. Both companies are committed to ground breaking Smart City innovations that will deliver efficient and stress-free parking.”

Altera Demos Motor Control and Battery Management Solutions at Electric & Hybrid Technology Expo 2015

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) is demonstrating its industry-leading programmable logic solutions for electric and hybrid vehicle powertrains and battery management systems at the Electric & Hybrid Technology Expo 2015, being held at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan, from September 14 to 17. Visit the Altera booth (#737A) to learn how Altera FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) can improve system performance, accelerate time-to-market, and reduce total cost of ownership for automotive designs.

Demonstrations at the Altera booth include:

  • Tandem Motion-Power 48V prototyping board that uses Altera’s Max® 10 FPGA and controls a dual axis motor with DC/DC conversion (12V to 48V), and which supports optional battery power capability.
  • Battery Management System (BMS) that uses an FPGA-powered SOC (state of charge) estimator, running on an Altera Cyclone® V SoC (system on chip) that demonstrates the high accuracy and breakthrough performance of FPGA-enabled electric vehicle BMS systems, developed by the University of Pisa, Italy.
  • New Charging Curve Analysis (CCA) Technology that uses an Altera Cyclone V FPGA to provide a much more accurate estimation of the battery’s SOC and SOH (state of health). This patented technology allows maximum utilization of battery capacity within minimum error of estimation even after a long life usage cycle.

According to Tak Ikushima, Sr. Marketing Manager in the Automotive Business Unit at Altera, “Microcontrollers used to be sufficient, but they are now hitting a ceiling in performance as automotive applications become smarter and more demanding.

Keysight Technologies Delivers Solution for APIX2 Physical Layer Testing for High-Resolution In-Car Video Applications

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Faster, More Efficient Testing of APIX2 Designs Reduces Time-to-Market

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS) today announced that its new APIX2 compliance application offers the capability to characterize and test APIX2 (Automotive Pixel Link) high-speed SerDes (serialiser/deserialiser) technology using the Keysight Infiniium Series oscilloscopes, the most advanced oscilloscope platform in the industry.

Developed by Inova Semiconductors, APIX2 is a multi-channel technology for high-resolution in-car video applications. APIX2 can establish multiple display links with a bandwidth of up to 3Gbps, over two pairs of copper cables or a single QSTP cable, and supports HD video at 24 bit color depth.

Set-up of the application is straightforward, and it has an intuitive user interface with step-by-step configuration dialogs. Previously, testing APIX2 was a manual process that required a thorough study of the AN204 specification, and had a high potential for error. Now with the Keysight solution, testing and reporting is automated, providing quick results and ensuring repeatability across test runs. Significant savings in overall test time means faster time-to-market.

The Keysight APIX2 compliance application tests according to the AN204 Revision 1.1 specification, and simplifies the challenge of testing multiple configurations. Keysight used its expertise in compliance test and Infiniium Application Framework to develop the new application.

The Keysight APIX2 compliance application automates the following tests as specified in the AN204 Rev. 1.1 specification:

  • Downstream Transmitter at MP1 (RJ, PJ, ISI, DCD)
  • Downstream Transmitter at MP2 (Eye before ISI, ISI, Eye after ISI, TJ)
  • Upstream at MP4 (Eye diagram)

A report is generated that compares the results with the specified test limit and indicates how closely the device passes or fails each test. For maximum flexibility, engineers can add extra tests.

In addition to test automation, Keysight oscilloscopes deliver the highest signal integrity in the market, ensuring the most accurate measurements. As jitter budgets become tighter, engineers have a choice of several Infiniium platforms, including the new V-Series, utilizing InP chipsets, and the S-Series, featuring the world’s fastest and highest-bit ADC at up to 8 GHz bandwidth. These devices, developed and manufactured by Keysight, give engineers oscilloscopes with the lowest noise, highest ENOB and flattest frequency response in the industry.

Keysight’s complete oscilloscope portfolio includes instruments with a variety of form factors with bandwidths from 20 MHz to 90 GHz. Product images are available at www.keysight.com/find/APIX2_images.
