Lock combination: Keeping ITS secure requires a multi-tier approach

As transportation is becoming more connected, it is also becoming more dependent on complex computing systems and software. Whereas the risk of security breaches used to be a physical one, now automotive electronics and advanced traffic management systems and their component field devices include a large number of computing hosts, with vulnerabilities from any number of cyber entry points. The security environment is beginning to shift around intelligent transportation systems (ITS), as they become increasingly connected and familiar to a wider audience. Challenges in cybersecurity are discussed in this article, along with suggestions for effective protection.
