Building Secure Vehicular Software

Presented by

Dr. Mark Sherman, Technical Director, CERT / Software Engineering Institute, Carnegie Mellon University

About this talk

Software plays an expanding and critical role in the success of future vehicles such as automobiles and trucks. Novel technologies that depend on the flexibility of software create new vulnerabilities and new ways to attack systems. This talk explores the expanding landscape of vulnerabilities that accompany the increasing reliance on software and then examines some key steps to help mitigate the increased risk: development of appropriate requirements from an analysis of risks, techniques that can be applied during development, and evaluation approaches for existing systems. The talk will conclude with a view of emerging approaches to further improve the delivery and sustainment of such critical software. About the Presenter: Dr. Mark Sherman is the Director of the Cyber Security Foundations group at CERT within CMU’s Software Engineering Institute. His team focuses on foundational research on the life cycle for building secure software and on data-driven analysis of cyber security. Before coming to CERT, Dr. Sherman was at IBM and various startups, working on mobile systems, integrated hardware-software appliances, transaction processing, languages and compilers, virtualization, network protocols and databases. He has published over 50 papers on various topics in computer science.
