SecTor - An Introduction to Automotive Security in 2020

Event date 22 October 2020


As cars continue to become more connected and autonomous, the security of these systems grows in importance. We’re now a decade away from the first public research on automotive security, and since then the challenges of securing these vehicles has increased due to new features. connectivity, and automation.

In this talk, we’ll provide an introduction to automotive security for those who are curious but have limited exposure to the field. We will cover how vehicle networks work, vehicle attack surfaces, and common vulnerabilities in vehicle systems. Next, we will discuss how the landscape of vehicle electronics is changing, and what is coming in future vehicles. We’ll finish off with some practical advice for getting your feet wet with hacking cars.
