Intelligent vehicles are advancing at a fast speed with the improvement of automation and connectivity, which opens up new possibilities for different cyber-attacks, including in-vehicle attacks (e.g., hijacking attacks) and vehicle-to-everything communicationattacks (e.g., data theft). These problems are becoming increasingly serious with the development of 4G LTE and 5G communication technologies. Although many efforts are made to improve the resilience to cyber attacks, there are still many unsolved challenges. This paper first identifies some major security attacks on intelligent connected vehicles. Then, we investigate and summarize the available defences against these attacks and classify them into four categories: cryptography, network security, software vulnerability detection, and malware detection. Remaining challenges and future directions for preventing attacks on intelligent vehicle systems have been discussed as well.
