UK publishes guidelines for autonomous vehicle security standards
The UK has published its first security guidelines for autonomous vehicle technology. In a statement released by the Department for Transport (DfT), the cyber security standards have been published by the British Standards Institute. The creation of this guidance has been supported by a range of establishments, including OEMs Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), Ford and Bentley, as well as the National Cyber Security Centre. Funding for this has come from the DfT. On the announcement, Future of Mobility Minister, Jesse Norman said, "As vehicles get smarter, major opportunities for the future of mobility increase. But so too do the challenges posed by data theft and hacking. This cyber security standard should help to improve the resilience and readiness of the industry, and help keep the UK at the forefront of advancing transport technology."
Significance: According to the DfT, these are the first standards for security for autonomous driving standards, and follows the government setting out key principles of cyber security for automated vehicles, such as the expectation that systems should be designed to be resilient to attacks and respond appropriately when its defences fail. According to the British Standards website, the Publicly Available Specification (PAS) has been written for OEMs; Tier-1 and Tier-2 component suppliers; authorised service centres; aftermarket suppliers; road and highways authorities; and service providers to both the vehicle and its occupants and/or cargo. It applies to the security and functional safety aspects of the entire automotive development and use life cycle, including specification, design, implementation, integration, verification, validation, configuration, production, operation, servicing and decommissioning. It is also said to take into account the large current fleet of vehicles in use, which have varying degrees of connectivity and automation, while the degree to which security has been considered as part of the design and manufacture will vary depending on the age, nature and complexity of the vehicle. It remains to be seen whether the UK's standards are used as a template for other similar initiatives around the world.
