Performing risk assessments at the vehicle software component level are challenging for numerous reasons. The amount of code involved is staggering, access to the code may be restricted and the overall process depends on all the players in the automotive OEM’s complex supply-chain.
The Software Vulnerability Management solution allows the automated triggering of scanning of binaries for cybersecurity vulnerabilities, provides a cybersecurity “risk score” to binaries under HARMAN OTA solution management and supports campaign initiation decisions. An automotive OEM has little visibility into the source code and potential vulnerabilities that lie within it. With this HARMAN add-on, OEMs will now be able to be alerted on component-level vulnerabilities throughout the supply chain, and further assess the risk and impact of zero-day vulnerabilities while shortening response time from identification to full recovery.
