FASTR today released a security manifesto. Formerly called “Automotive Security Review Board” and founded by Aeris, Intel Security and Uber in 2016, FASTR seeks to enable innovation in automotive security through industry-wide collaboration on the actionable applied and theoretical R&D needed now to drive systematic coordination of cybersecurity across the entire supply chain and ensure trust in the connected and autonomous vehicle of the future.
FASTR provides a neutral, pre-competitive, open environment through which the evolving automotive ecosystem can collaborate. FASTR brings together auto-industry veterans and disruptors, technology giants and startups, leading academics and hackers to create the agile, iterative research and produce the reference architectures, proofs of concept, code samples, white papers, best known methods, etc. that automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) need today, to drive requirements across their supply chains, reduce risks and liabilities and foster trust in connected and autonomous vehicles of the future.
FASTR today also announced two new members: Karamba Security, which provides zero false positive autonomous cybersecurity solutions for connected and autonomous vehicles, and Rambus, which is dedicated to providing innovative automotive security solutions including tamper resistance and trusted provisioning services.
FASTR seeks to collaborate with complementary, like-minded organizations in this effort.
FASTR believes that we collectively have the opportunity, and responsibility, to rearchitect the vehicle in such a way that cybersecurity is at its very foundation. This must be coordinated across the entire, evolving automotive supply chain. We believe that tomorrow’s connected and automated vehicles should be “organically secure” — systematically more able to deal with inevitable cybersecurity threats in a safe and predictable manner and, ultimately, to self-heal.
FASTR—Future of Automotive Security Technology Research—is a neutral, inclusive nonprofit consortium that seeks to enable innovation in automotive security with a vision of self-healing vehicles. FASTR is working to deliver the actionable applied and theoretical R&D needed now to drive systematic coordination of cybersecurity across the entire supply chain and ensure trust in the connected and autonomous vehicle of the future.
