Integrating cybersecurity and functional safety for autonomous vehicles

When developing autonomous vehicles, we prioritize safety in the vehicle’s positioning (even across weather conditions). But an important aspect to also consider is the cybersecurity of that positioning data. If we cannot ensure the cybersecurity of the positioning data, then we cannot ensure the functional safety of an autonomous vehicle either.

While these processes can be done individually, Hexagon | NovAtel’s Functional Safety and Cybersecurity manager Zoltan Molnar explains how both cybersecurity and functional safety can be integrated when developing autonomous vehicles. By doing so, we can achieve a holistic understanding of threats, hazards, and solutions of safety and security. 

A holistic approach in autonomous and automotive standards

In this webinar hosted by Hexagon | AutonomouStuffZoltan shares how cybersecurity and safety analyses inform the other for an efficient, safe, and secure autonomous system. 

Further, Zoltan describes the benefits and limitations of encryption versus authentication of positioning data, and outlines the ways that protections and mitigation mechanisms can be layered throughout autonomous systems.  

This research is based on ISO 26262 safety standards and SAE J3061 cybersecurity analysis for cyber-physical vehicle systems. 

Watch Zoltan Molnar in the AutonomouStuff webinar to learn how integrating functional safety and cybersecurity analyses build safer and more secure autonomous systems.
