BlackBerry COO Marty Beard has taken to Inside BlackBerry explaining how BlackBerry QNX can safeguard your vehicle. Documents published by WikiLeaks unveiled investigations from the CIA that listed BlackBerry QNX as a potential target for hacking.

BlackBerry clarifies that they are not currently aware of any attacks or exploits against BlackBerry products or services. Seizing the moment, Beard expands on some of the mechanics behind the multi-level security implementations baked into the QNX OS platform.

The post gives us a fascinating look into some of the layers that BlackBerry has invested in to build on the security credence necessary to safely operate automotive systems.

Beard mentions the QNX Software Development Platform SDP 7.0 that packs a 64-bit OS and a multi-level platform that features a policy-driven security model which combines some of BlackBerry's best security technology. The platform will be certified to ISO 26262 ASIL D which is the highest delegation possible for a vehicle.

To understand the real benefits of the BlackBerry security model, one must consider the entire stack of applications and processes beyond just the OS. This multi-layered approach protects against single attack surfaces and creates an end-to-end infrastructure that guards the car against breaches and technical failures.

It's increasingly important that BlackBerry securely push forward to help enable the swiftly changing world of software defined cards. With semi-autonomous and fully autonomous drive on the horizon, auto manufacturers will continue to turn to partners like BlackBerry QNX to help accelerate these innovations while protecting against the incredible computing power that is built into more and more vehicles on the road today.

BlackBerry continues to deliver timely updates about how they keep drivers connected and protected. If you want to learn more about the security layers surrounding BlackBerry QNX, head on over to full post.
