The Autoinfotainment system will not only provide information systems and entertainment to car components, but it will also connect to the Internet and a wide range of multimedia and mobile devices. However, with the introduction of many smart devices and a variety of wireless communications through Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, DSRC, and cellular, we are experiencing major challenges to secure and protect vehicular advanced information and entertainment services due to the significant increase of the attack surface, complexity, heterogeneity and number of interconnected resources. In this paper, we present an Auto Security Development Framework (ASDF) to build trustworthy and highly secure auto information and entertainment services. The ASDF enables developers to consider security issues at all the auto car communications layers and integrate security algorithms with the functions and services offered in each layer rather than considering security in an ad-hoc and after thought manner. We also show how this framework can be used to develop anomaly behavior analysis algorithm to detect wireless attacks against the QUALCOMM DragonBoard Autoinfotainment system.
