In the High-Assurance Cyber Military Systems project, researchers are investigating how to construct complex networked-vehicle software securely. Experiments demonstrated that careful attention to requirements and system architecture, along with formally verified approaches that remove known security weaknesses, can lead to vehicles that can withstand attacks from even sophisticated attackers with access to vehicle design data.
