As vehicles become increasingly connected and software-powered, GENIVI recognizes an emerging need for a comprehensive, end-to-end security model. The GENIVI Security Team looks at automotive cybersecurity holistically and delivers guidelines, research, and education that help build, deliver and manage more secure vehicles in the future.
The GENIVI Security Team has added experts from FASTR (The Future of Automotive Security Technology Research), a nonprofit research consortium dedicated to automotive cybersecurity. The expanded GENIVI Security Team will leverage FASTR’s foundational research and build upon the foundations both organizations have already established in the areas of threat modeling, secure software over-the-air updates and developing secure software. For more information about the FASTR integration into the GENIVI Security Team, visit the FASTR FAQ page.
