HERE Technologies joins the Uptane Alliance


HERE Technologies ... has joined the Uptane Alliance ... a non-profit consortium of automotive companies, security researchers from academia, and government agencies working to standardize Uptane open-source software for the security of over-the-air software updates for vehicles and other edge devices and infrastructure. "The automotive industry has realized that OTA updates are necessary for safety, security, and to reduce costs,” said Justin Cappos, member of the Board of Directors of Uptane Alliance and professor at New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering. “Unfortunately, if not appropriately secured, software update systems are an attack vector that attackers can exploit. ... Engineers from HERE Technologies’ OTA team have been working with the Uptane Alliance for a number of years, and we’re happy to welcome them as an official member.”
