Secured Open Source Embedded Software

Cars are expensive pieces of equipment, yet they represent a huge mass market. Adding Internet connectivity to previous elements generates perfect conditions for the growth of a viable business model on attacking “Connected Cars”. It is already well understood that cars will be connected and connected cars will be attacked. While it's still too early to predict with certainty how “Connected Cars” will be impacted by security flaws, making the assumption that a car should be at least as secure as a TV, a set-top-box or a smart phone should make sense to everyone. This white paper focuses on how Linux best practices security mechanisms that could be used today and within the next couple of years to make connected cars safer and more secure.

Light virtualisation is often viewed as a security mechanism providing isolation on a production device or as a quick deployment tool for Cloud services. But it can also be used in automotive projects as a tool to ease the development phase.

This presentation focuses on Docker benefits for the whole development cycle of an automotive project: it can increase build speeds and allows easier sharing of common snapshots between developers. Platform and application developments can also benefit from containers at various stages. Long term support is equally made easier.
