VB2018 paper: Under the hood - the automotive challenge

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Mar 27, 2019

During last week's Pwn2Own 2019 hacking contest, a Senegalese-Chinese duo managed to hack a Tesla Model 3. As per the competition's rules, they were allowed to keep the car and also received a cash prize. Tesla has announced that a fix will be released shortly.

Car hacking has become a hot subject in recent years. It has evolved from a somewhat esoteric hacker subject to a problem that car manufacturers are actually interested in solving, Tesla's participation in Pwn2Own being a good example of that.

At VB2018 in Montreal, Argus Cyber Security's Inbar Raz presented a paper that provides an introduction to the subject of car hacking. In the paper, he looks at the complex problem, examples of car hacks, and the challenges ahead.

Today we have published Inbar's paper in both HTML and PDF format. We have also uploaded the video of his presentation to our YouTube channel.
