Application controlled secure dynamic firewall for automotive digital cockpit
Automotive digital cockpit is growing multi-dimensionally through multiple numbers of applications for driver assistance and user activities. The exponential growth of diverse applications provides global connectivity to the vehicles, but it equally provides a passage for the global security threats to reach the automotive surface by increasing the attack surfaces on the vehicles. The controlled interaction of the vehicular applications with the external digital world protects vehicular confidentiality and integrity, where the violation of which affects the automotive safety and security. The controlled interaction of the applications is achieved through a firewall system either to pass or block traffic through the networking interface. The opening and closing of ports using static and dynamic firewall suffer from their own shortcomings, where those instances provide open ports for the attackers to launch the attacks by accessing the ports.
