Intel Takes On Car Hacking, Founds Auto Security Review Board

Chipmaker establishes new Automotive Security Review Board for security tests and audits
After a summer full of car hacking revelations, Intel, today, announced the creation of a new Automotive Security Review Board (ASRB), focused on security tests and audits for the automobile industry.
The potential for modern connected cars to be attacked and remotely controlled by malicious hackers is a topic that has received considerable attention recently from security experts, industry stakeholders, regulators, lawmakers, and consumers.
An Intel press release described the ASRB as a forum for top security talent in the area of cyber-physical systems. “The ASRB researchers will perform ongoing security tests and audits intended to codify best practices and design recommendations for advanced cyber-security solutions,” for the auto industry, the release noted.
ASRB members will have access to Intel automotive’s development platforms for conducting research. Findings will be published publicly on an ongoing basis, Intel said. The member that provides the greatest cybersecurity contribution will be awarded a new car or cash equivalent.
