Panel 1: 

Automotive Safety and Security: The Impending Challenges and Hopes on the Horizon

Panel Organizers: Mark Tehranipoor (University of Florida) and Yervant Zorian (Synopsys)
Panel Moderator: Mark Tehranipoor (University of Florida)

Safety and security assurance of future smart vehicles have become ever more important and a pressing need.  The complex ecosystem delivering components – both hardware and software – through a potentially untrusted supply chain and the sheer complexity of security design and validation of modern cars create host of new challenges with system security. Innovative features like driver assistance, infotainment via smartphone integration or over-the-air (OTA) updates keep increasing the potential attack surfaces and vulnerabilities for both remote and physical attacks. This panel will cover this important topic and point to the associated challenges as well as hopes in the horizon.
