British government wants stricter rules for security smart cars
The British government is working on new rules for cars with a connection to the internet to better protect against hackers.
The British government fears that smart cars are increasingly the target of hackers, writes Reuters. Attackers can use smart in-car systems, for example, personal data access, steal a car or control of a car over it.
New guidelines should ensure that automakers have improved measures to reduce vulnerabilities in the system. The British government required manufacturers to have the security throughout the life cycle of a car to support.
Smart in-car systems, for example, are corrupt or malicious data can reject. Also, people have their personal information on cars are installed may erase, such as trips that they have taken.
The British government says in addition to working on new legislation for self-propelled cars. In which rules will be more clarity on who is responsible in accidents with self-propelled cars. That is important in insurance matters.
