Is Confidential Computing the Future of Cloud Security? 

In October, IBM announced plans to split the 109-year-old tech giant’s managed infrastructure services unit into a separate public company that will focus on cloud computing. Dubbed “NewCo,” the company plans to launch late next year in order for IBM to center its attention on artificial intelligence projects and its cloud platform. Since the Covid-19 […]

Five Major Cyber Security Threats for Automakers

Currently, 200 million digitally “connected vehicles” are traversing the world’s roadways, according to a recent white paper from the 5G Automotive Association (5GAA). By 2024, real-time traffic updates will be possible thanks to road infrastructure that will be digitally connected. By 2026, advanced vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) capabilities will help bring automated vehicles another step closer to […]

Six Ways to Protect Against Autonomous Vehicle Cyber Attacks

Today, it’s relatively easy for cyber criminals to hack into connected vehicles. The reason being that they only need to exploit a single vulnerability within an autonomous car to gain access to the operating system—and possibly the entire network.  Demonstrating Autonomous Vehicle Cyber Attacks There are a number of examples demonstrating these vulnerabilities. In 2015, […]

Creating Safer Interconnected Vehicles

Even today’s most sophisticated interconnected vehicles aren’t immune to cyber attacks. At the 2020 Black Hat Conference, a group of security researchers from the company Qihoo 360 demonstrated how they can hack a Mercedes-Benz E-Class car and remotely start its engine and open its doors. How Did They Do It? Using a testbench, the research […]

Rush to Cloud Computing Raises Security Concerns

Demand for cloud computing is accelerating. In 2019, companies exceeded spending on in-house data center hardware and software for the first time. According to John Dinsdale, chief analyst at Synergy Research Group, in a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal, companies are paying an estimated $96.4 billion USD on cloud-based services. This year, the […]

U.N. Announces New Cyber Security Regulation for Connected Vehicles

A new United Nations regulation will soon require vehicle makers in jurisdictions in Japan, South Korea, and the European Union to secure connected vehicles from cyber security threats. In June, 53 countries adopted an agreement that requires national regulators to guarantee vehicles are adequately protected against potential cyber security attacks. The agreement also requires manufacturers […]

Student Research Team Create Prototype of Secure Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Communications System 

Autonomous vehicles have the potential to reduce traffic accidents. However, without proper security features that would protect them from hackers who seek to control them remotely—or from roadside vandals who might confuse them by damaging roadway infrastructure such as stop signs—autonomous vehicles could still pose threats. With public safety in mind, many experts have called […]

How Can Autonomous Vehicles Be Protected Against Cyber Security Threats?

While autonomous vehicles are expected to be far less prone to accidents than driver-controlled vehicles once they’ve undergone substantial training, they may pose a more serious threat. Due to the over-the-air hardware and software updates these vehicles routinely require, experts believe they have the potential to easily come under attack from hackers who can use […]

Edge Computing: Security Issues and Trends to Watch in 2020

Despite roadblocks created by the COVID-19 pandemic, edge computing is expected to undergo explosive growth over the next decade, bolstered by developments in 5G and Internet of Things (IoT) technology. According to Grand View Research, the technology’s global market value in 2019 was $2.5 billion USD. By 2027, that value is expected to increase to […]

Developments and Challenges Influencing the Advancement of 5G 

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic sweeping the globe has caused the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), the international organization that creates telecommunication standards, to delay the release of two 5G standards. These standards will determine 5G requirements for standalone (SA) networks, industrial Internet of Things (IoT) devices, and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) systems. The standards, Rel-16 Stage 3 […]
