Automotive Threat Modelling
Is it possible to assess the risk posed by critical engine control units?
Automotive threat modelling is proven to be a useful procedure for optimising network security by identifying objectives and vulnerabilities, and then defining countermeasures to prevent, or mitigate the effects of, threats to the system.
We’ll evaluate and situate these threats with respect to wider system risks, security and safety, and propose cost-effective countermeasures.
