End-to-end comprehensive cybersecurity process
Today’s cars have multiple computers (ECUs) running millions of lines of software code that control virtually all aspects of vehicle operation. As cars get connected to the internet, cyber protection of these ECUs is critical to ensure vehicle safety. Visteon incorporates end-to-end cybersecurity – from the design and development of the ECUs to secure manufacturing of these products – and then keeps the technology up-to-date in the field with secure OTA updates.
Visteon’s public key infrastructure (PKI) supports the infrastructure required for authenticating the software running in the ECU. Secure manufacturing systems and one-time programmable fuses provide a strong chain for securing the ECU.
