Designing Automotive Case Studies for Architectural Security Analyses


Digitalization is one of the biggest drivers of advancements in the modern automotive domain. The resulting increase in communication is leading to a more intensive exchange of data and the opening up of for merly closed systems. This raises questions about security and data protection. Software architecture analyses can help identify potential issues, thereby making systems more secure and compliant with data protection laws. Such analyses require representative case studies for development and evaluation. In this paper, we showcase the results of applying requirements and processes for case-study research during three bachelor theses with students. The resulting three case studies center around the automotive and mobility domain and focus on different security and privacy properties. We discuss our insights and experiences regarding the creation of case studies.
