Fiat Chrysler Launches Bug Bounty Program

Platform will be leveraged to identify and resolve security issues in automobile software.

FCA US, a member of the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles family, has launched a public bug bounty program on the Bugcrowd platform to identify potential vulnerabilities in automobile software, according to various news reports.

FCA, whose Jeep Wrangler was recently a victim of ‘car hacking’ in Houston, plans to use this public channel to address cybersecurity issues facing the automobile industry.

The tie up with Bugcrowd, a crowdsourced community comprising thousands of security researchers, aims to help FCA identify vulnerabilities in product security and implement fixes to improve the safety of its vehicles.

“Car manufacturers have the opportunity to engage the community of hackers that is already at the table and ready to help, and FCA US is the first full-line automaker to optimize that relationship through its paid bounty program," says Casey Ellis of Bugcrowd. 

Reward payout will be managed by Bugcrowd and could be anything between $150 and $1,500, according to a PR Newswire press release.

Automotive Cybersecurity and Coding
Bug bounty programs are always a good idea when you stand to lose significant revenue, and when lives are at stake.  But let's also be sure that the technology being used to create products is designed and programmed securely in the first place.  For automotive software, compliance to MISRA-C, automotive SPICE and ISO 26262 guidelines is a start.  Hyperviser and virtualization support to allow running untrusted apps alongside trusted and secure apps is another plus.  Highly proprietary CAN-BUS languages for communication protection, along with high encryption.  If you're willing to spend money on bug bounties, maybe you should also consider spending the same money up-front in your Design and Build phases.  Just saying.

Bug Bounty
All car manufactures should do the same. And I think the reword should be higher. With small rewards it looks like Fiat Chrysler is making more like a PR move rather than really attacking infosec researches.
