Research Into Smart Mobility Cyber Attack Trends

SUMMARY

This report finds that long-range remote attacks are becoming more popular and even surpassing the numbers of physical attacks in the smart mobility sector. The proximity of attackers or the location of vehicles or servers is not a key factor anymore when it comes to preventing cyber-attacks in the automotive industry.

This research is addressed to stakeholders in the smart mobility sector and aims at providing the information necessary to get to know the risks lurking nowadays’s vehicles and roads. The paper also aims at presenting the industry the adequate tools to fight against cyber-attack trends. Its main objective is to solve the questions around cyber-attacks on the smart mobility ecosystem and give a picture of the state of the industry.

A carmaker could pay up to $1.1bn nowadays for a single cyberattack, the report notes. According to a recent report by Juniper Research, the overall cost for the sector could be up to $24bn by 2023.

The paper reveals that Black hat attacks have not stopped increasing but are in fact exceeding White hat incidents at present. According to this report's findings, there is a new type of attack that has recently emerged, originated unintentionally by connected car users: data privacy in used connected cars. The consequences of this type of incident can be as harmful as Black hat attacks, the paper notes. 

21.4% of the attacks on a connected vehicle are server attacks - out of which the majority are the Black hat. Keyless entry makes up 18.8% of attacks, the paper adds. While mobile applications addressed to vehicle owners to take control of features of their vehicle remotely represent 8% of attacks on connected vehicles.
