Improving Connected Cars Through App Security (InfoGraphic)
For application developers, data forensics will be increasingly important in determining the traces left behind in a connected car hack, including malicious code. Aside from who was behind the attack, they also need to consider the means used. This includes communication channels like WiFi, Bluetooth and USB that are making their way into cars via OBD2 ports, which are shown on this infographic by Arxan about IoT-related application protection for cars and software in other industries.
More sophisticated sensors also require more complex code, meaning that all applications used in Internet-of-Things technologies should be held to the same encryption standards. End-to-end encryption is a way of making sure that a third party can’t intercept communication between two people–and something that business app developers can use to protect sensitive company information.
To enable this type of complex code while still rapidly developing apps, coding-optional is key. Click here to learn how Alpha Anywhere’s coding optional approach gives developers the flexibility they need to add the security requirements their apps need.
