Enhancing Automotive Cybersecurity: Introducing AutoVulnDB, an Industry-Specific Vulnerability Database.

WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2024 / — In light of the dynamic vulnerability landscape and the increasing demand for industry-specific solutions, we are thrilled to announce the AutoVulnDB, a dedicated vulnerability database designed specifically for the automotive sector. Developed in close collaboration with VicOne, a subsidiary of Trend Micro, AutoVulnDB aims to complement and expand upon the foundational frameworks provided by NVD (National Vulnerability Database) and MITRE CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures), leveraging the innovative capabilities of Filigran developed OpenCTI.

The vulnerability management market is undergoing significant changes, including a shift towards decentralized sources of vulnerability information. Recognizing the need to support industry-related use cases, particularly in the automotive sector, AutoVulnDB combines existing information, experience, and structure from NVD and CVE databases while providing enhanced contextual and situational data specific to the transportation industry and more specifically, automotive.

Key Features of AutoVulnDB:

Searchable Interface: A user-friendly searchable interface designed for easy access to relevant vulnerability information.
Comprehensive Development: Includes both frontend and backend development to ensure seamless user experience.
Data Quality and Enrichment: A robust data pipeline incorporating quality checks and enrichment processes, ensuring the information is actionable and reliable.
Integration with ASRG: Links to existing automotive security intelligence available from the Automotive Security Research Group (ASRG).

This is a first step towards supporting trustworthy, industry-specific vulnerability sources. AutoVulnDB is created in a non-profit context, solely to enable better cyber-secure solutions for the automotive industry. This is a community-supported development and we need your feedback, contributions, and ideas to take the first version to the next level.

AutoVulnDB is now available to the public, and we encourage automotive industry professionals, cybersecurity experts, and researchers to explore the database and participate in its continuous improvement. Together, we can enhance the security of automotive systems and build a safer future.
