White Paper: The Car – A Hostile Environment Requiring Protection

History has shown that physical access to a device is sufficient for an attacker to gain root privileges on that device. For an embedded Linux or other Unix-like operating system, such an attacker would be given access to all commands and files. For a car, this opens up extreme security vulnerabilities. Irdeto Cloakware for Automotive is a solution suite that combines innovative technologies and comprehensive services to address a variety of security challenges in a car.

This paper will delve primarily into Secure Environment, a customizable offering in the solution suite designed to enhance existing security mitigations by thwarting attackers after they have gained root privileges.
