Certainly, of most appeal to automotive OEMs and Tier 1 manufacturers is an approach that car software management company Movimento recently brought to the market that encompasses the entire software updating needs of the car as a whole Figure 1.

Figure 1: The Movimento OTA Platform is capable of executing numerous software verions for a multitude of modules on millions of vehicles. Using bidirectional data gathering, an agent gathers vehicle diagnostics, prognostic, and preventative analytics data, which could be used to not only provide information to third-party companies such as insurance agencies, but could also be used to intelligently determine when software updates to the car can be applied safely and proactively.
If car owners had a say, they would certainly choose to use OTA for not only updates and non-mechanical maintenance, but other tasks as well given its superior convenience. Taken to the next level, OTA could even provide cars with a new set of capabilities, such as changing vehicle performance. A car owner could go to an OEM and request an increase from to horsepower since that could be accomplished by tuning the performance of the engine and transmission, which could be made achievable through OTA updates while the car owner is on a lunch break.
Car companies can use OTA technology to create new businesses for themselves as well. Consider a consumer who wants a better audio system, selects the update from an online menu, and applies it through an OTA software upgrade. But imagine an auto company with the foresight to have developed an ecosystem of relationships with independent software vendors ISVs such as Spotify or Pandora that provide music for the car.
Having designed their vehicle as a software platform for ecosystem partners, relying on them to deliver the necessary software and opening up a new potential revenue stream.
Embedded Security in Cars: Securing Current and Future Automotive It Applications
Of course, this concept also requires that vehicles become open systems without the proprietary mindset favored by manufacturers today. In reality, automobiles could be like iPhones, with open-source code that is used by a huge array of suppliers that make aftermarket applications for cars. In this world, the role of the manufacturer would be as the gatekeeper that controls the repository, much like Apple is with its products today. The manufacturer will make sure that when new apps become part of the overall offering they meet certain quality criteria, privacy, security, and other standards.
Another aspect of the software-defined car with major potential is personalization.

Today, many newer cars have key fobs containing settings for that user seat position, steering wheel height, headrest, door mirrors, preprogrammed infotainment system settings, etc. Rather than having the user adapt to the car, the car adapts to the user — clearly a superior way of thinking for companies with a mind toward untapped revenue.
See a Problem?
The possibilities of the software-defined car are enormous, but a critical part of having so much information sent via radio signals is obviously security. Personal information, safety systems, and other key data for a vehicle must be protected using secure connectivity, which is achievable today in some OTA products. The most advanced approach uses cybersecurity technology to continually protect the entire vehicle from unauthorized messages, including malware and security breaches of any kind.
Automation cuts costs and helps create new business opportunities, which can provide the auto industry with an income stream long after the car is initially sold. The question is whether to get ahead of the curve or be among the stragglers who resist change. A year industry veteran, Mahbubul works with Movimento customers to maximize the potential of secure over-the-air OTA updates and enable new connected services for the vehicle.

Most innovations in the car industry are based on software and electronics, and IT will soon constitute the major production cost factor. It seems almost certain that embedded IT security will be crucial for the next generation of applications. Yet whereas software safety has become a relatively well-established field, the protection of automotive IT systems against manipulation or intrusion has only recently started to emerge. Lemke, Paar, and Wolf collect in this volume a state-of-the-art overview on all aspects relevant for IT security in automotive applications.
After an introductory chapter written by the editors themselves, the contributions from experienced experts of different disciplines are structured into three parts.
The first book in this area of fast-growing economic and scientific importance, it is indispensable for both researchers in software or embedded security and professionals in the automotive industry. He has over 70 peer-reviewed publications and patents in the area of applied security. He is a pioneer in the emerging field of IT security for automotive applications.
