Connected Car: Putting Digital Identity Behind the Wheel How do you ensure security and privacy for customers and manufacturers of the connected car?

The Internet of Things comprises of a diverse range of devices – from industrial sensors controlling critical manufacturing processes all the way to home devices like smart TVs and fridges. The idea of connecting a car to the internet started as an upgrade to the vehicle’s onboard entertainment system. The concept quickly evolved and branched into numerous market segments including navigation systems, safety and diagnostics, toll payments, and fleet management.

A modern connected vehicle is no longer just a car with a built-in wireless access point – it is a complex network of multiple interconnected systems from different vendors that are constantly communicating with each other as well as with various external parties, both consumer-facing and industrial. Each connected car is a rolling IoT ecosystem where industrial applications and protocols coexist with consumer-grade apps and services.

As the industry heads full speed towards self-driving cars, connected cars will be a global norm in the near future, making security and privacy critical and immediate challenges for automotive vendors.

Join this KuppingerCole webinar to learn about the challenges of securing connected vehicles and the role of identity and access management in the automotive industry. Learn more about:

  • Challenges of security and identity in a world of connected vehicles
  • Identities and third parties that interact with the connected vehicle
  • Why a traditional Identity & Access Management (IAM) approach is not enough for managing the identity and security needs of connected vehicles
  • Impacts of Consent Management and GDPR
  • Security with Patch Management

In the first part of the webinar, Martin Kuppinger, Founder and Principal Analyst at KuppingerCole, will discuss the security challenges of connected vehicles. He will look at criticality and risk of various components and interactions, but also at the impact intelligent devices themselves can have on risk mitigation. He will look at the challenges of managing identities, authentication, and authorization and the need for tiered architectures that control access to the vehicle.

In the second part, Ashley Stevenson, Identity Director at ForgeRock, will talk in detail about the complexity of IAM infrastructures designed for connected vehicles. He also will look at the challenges of Consent Management and Patch Management in the context of connected vehicles.
