Abstract:Modern vehicular systems house a number of high computation devices and fleets of sensory networks. While functional subsystems like Advance Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), safety systems, Human Machine Inter- faces (HMI) form the foundations to (semi)autonomy of vehicles, any possi- bility of a threat to safety and security are intolerable. These progressive functional domains are tightly coupled with modern IT infrastructures and demand high bandwidth communication channels. By offering improved bandwidth over the single twisted pair, automotive Ethernet solves this problem over former Controller Area Network (CAN). However, it could also bring a variety of security threats which need to be examined. Security risk assessment is an effective process of discovering, correcting and preventing the occurrence of unanticipated security threats. The Master thesis proposes a security risk assessment methodology for Ethernet-based vehicular networks. The methodology is a four-step iterative process model and offers a structured approach to design, analyze, assess, mitigate and record rationale behind assessments.
