The SAE Vehicle Electrical System Security Committee is responsible for developing and maintaining Recommended Practices and Information Reports in the area of vehicle electrical systems’ security. The committee’s scope is on-board vehicle electrical systems that affect vehicle control or otherwise act contrary to the occupants’ interests if the systems are manipulated by an attacker. The goals of the committee are:
• to identify and recommend strategies and techniques related to preventing and detecting adversarial breaches, and
• mitigating undesirable effects if a breach is achieved.
The group will classify attack methods, propose preventative strategies, define levels of security by criticality of system type, and identify architecture-level strategies for mitigating attacks. Participants in the Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government entities, and other interested parties.
