Third Party Integration

Third Party Integration

There is an increasing trend in the Automotive Industry towards integrating third party apps/modules/ Appstore with Infotainment System.  This makes the underlying IVI implementations vulnerable to an attacker who might gain control of the Vehicle Controller Area Network (CAN) or other safety critical modules in the system.

Typical architecture of IVI systems

Proper isolation of safety critical applications is to be ensured while integrating third party applications into the system. Hypervisors are increasingly being used in today’s IVI systems to separate safety critical and non-safety critical domains.
