Abstract: Modern cars contain different automotive bus systems such as CAN, CAN FD and LIN, that were defined and developed before cars were connected to the Internet and cloud services. As a result, most automotive bus systems have been developed without considering aspects of security like authenticated communication. In today’s vehicles, the lack of authentication methods for communicating across automotive bus systems has made the connected car a potential target for easy hacker attacks. Car makers and tier one suppliers have meanwhile recognized the importance of having authenticated communication within the car and are supporting it in new developments to prevent unauthorized access to vehicles. This presentation will demonstrate a set of tools that simplify testing, analyzing, or verifying devices that use CAN authenticated communication.
