Summary:  We prove that, for a given one-sided subshift $X_\Lambda$, any non-trivial automorphism of the subshift always yields an outer automorphism of the $C^*$-algebra ${\cal O}_{\Lambda}$ associated with the subshift. In particular, any non-trivial automorphism of the one-sided topological Markov shift $X_A$ for a $\{ 0,1\}$-matrix $A$ yields an outer automorphism of the Cuntz-Krieger algebra ${\cal O}_A$. We also determine the form of the automorphisms of the $C^*$-algebra ${\cal O}_{\Lambda}$ arising from automorphisms of the subshift $X_\Lambda$.
