A study by researchers at the University of Georgia, Kennesaw State University, and Temple University identified weaknesses in the cyber-physical security of powertrain systems in connected and automated electric vehicles. The team probed vulnerabilities to cyberattacks that sought to undermine the vehicles' energy efficiency and safety, and developed an architecture for next-generation power electronics systems.
"The results here will provide guidelines for manufacturers to develop better technologies against cyberattacks," says University of Georgia's Jin Ye.
Ye recommended basic safeguards against hacks, like the inclusion of a secure onboard diagnostics port; a better firewall; reliable hardware; secure software updates; penetration testing; and code reviews. Ye also suggests developing a cybersecurity monitoring system to detect, locate, diagnose, and ameliorate cyberattacks.
