  • Cyber security across the fleet
  • Proposal of a joint setup of Elektrobit SecOC and Argus IDPS


While extensively detailing the techniques to secure a message, some security aspects remain out of the scope of the AUTOSAR specification, namely key management and freshness. In addition, the specification does not necessarily apply to all in-vehicle communications and when applied correctly, might be subject to the limitation of the CAN message size. Each of these aspects pose security challenges. This paper outlines these challenges and proposes a joint approach of the Elektrobit SecOC mechanism and Argus IDPS to leverage the advantages of both technologies and greatly enhance the security of in-vehicle communications.
