How Secure Is Your Face?


Biometric security, which spans everything from iris scans to fingerprint sensors, is undergoing the same kind of race against hackers as every other type of sensor. While most of these systems work well enough to identify a person, there are a number of well-known ways to defeat them. One is simply to apply newer technology to cracking algorithms used inside these devices. Improvements in p... » read more

Securing The Modern Vehicle


For far too long, we’ve lacked the data needed to fully understand how effective the automotive industry is at addressing the software security risks inherent in connected, software-enabled vehicles. Synopsys and SAE International partnered to commission this independent survey of the current cybersecurity practices in the automotive industry to fill this information gap.
