Kim, D., Song, E., and Yu, H., "Introducing Attribute-Based Access Control to AUTOSAR," SAE Technical Paper 2016-01-0069, 2016, doi:10.4271/2016-01-0069.
Cyber security concerns in the automotive industry have been constantly increasing as automobiles are more computerized and networked. AUTOSAR is the standard architecture for automotive software development, addressing various aspects including security. The current version of AUTOSAR is concerned with only cryptography-based security for secure authentication at the communication level. However, there has been an increasing need for authorization security to control access on software resources such as data and services in the automobile. In this paper, we introduce attribute-based access control (ABAC) to AUTOSAR to address authorization in automotive software.
