Virtualization and Containerization Security Techniques in Connected Automotive Infotainment Systems

In-vehicle connectivity is growing and apps and Internet access, including music and videos, have become part of modern life. Increasingly, consumers want to transfer the information they use on handheld consumer electronics devices—such as smartphones—into their cars.

The consumer electronics industry has developed anti-virus software, firewalls, and other technologies to protect IT systems. Similarly, there is a need for the automotive industry to protect its vehicles from similar exterior threats.

This document discusses the latest security techniques for running multiple OSes on a single in-car infotainment hardware platform.
