Overview of modern car compromise techniques and methods of protection

Modern cars employ a wide array of communication interfaces. Some, like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, directly engage users, while others, such as RDS and GPS, provide user-facing services, and still others, like CAN and Ethernet buses, ensure the proper functioning of the car’s internal systems. These interfaces contribute to the extensive flow of data within the car, forming its data flow graph. Within this graph, they serve as the “entry points” for malicious attackers seeking access to the vehicle. However, tampering with them does not necessarily lead to the loss of the car’s security features.

In this webcast, cybersecurity experts, Alexander Kozlov and Sergey Anufrienko from Kaspersky’s ICS CERT, will delve into the automotive security. Together, we will:

  • Explore which interfaces attackers tend to favor when targeting cars and the reasons behind their choices.
  • Focus on the techniques attackers employ when conducting attacks through specific interfaces, with an emphasis on classical techniques.
  • Discuss how to defend against these threats and evaluate the feasibility of reducing associated risks.

Join us for this webinar, where we’ll equip you with the knowledge and tools to not only comprehend the ever-evolving landscape of automotive security but also to safeguard your modern vehicle effectively.
