The automobile evolves from a closed machine into one of the main IoT-Devices. More interfaces to networks also mean more corroding surfaces for attacks. To minimize the risk of hacks, the future car has to use techniques like certification, encryption and more to protect itself.
This project’s main focus is to define, develop and set up a blockchain-based application to secure the validity and integrity of Electronic Control Unit (ECU)-software. As creation of value in modern automotive development is achieved mostly by software, it has become mission-critical to secure one’s easy to copy intellectual property.
