In recent years, vehicles have become an increasingly important target for security research. Autonomous vehicles, connected vehicles, and vehicles equipped with ADAS features are host to numerous technologies that add to the attack surface of a vehicle. Due to being heavy objects that move at high speeds in close proximity to humans, vehicle security is, quite literally, an issue of public safety.
This training introduces the learner to the world of automotive security and car hacking, and gives an opportunity to learn about in-vehicle networks - the nervous system of a vehicle - hands-on. Students will learn the fundamentals of in-vehicle networking, the most common technologies used, and how to use a CAN bus using accessible hardware and software available to anyone for further research and education. With automotive security becoming a legal requirement in more and more countries, there is no better time to begin learning how to hack (and of course, defend) a vehicle!
• Quick intro to automotive security
• Introduction to In-Vehicle Networks and CAN bus
• Features of CAN bus
• Hardware and Software overview
• Reading CAN Data
• Sending CAN Data
• Logging CAN Data
• Reverse-Engineering CAN Signals
• CAN Bus Security
• CAN Bus Attacks
Kamel is a veteran of the automotive cybersecurity community, having spent over 3 years as an expert car hacker, technical trainer, and contributor to worldwide industry-focused communities such as the SAE, ASRG, and the Car Hacking Village. His particular areas of focus within vehicle security are Bluetooth, RF, and in-vehicle networks. He currently works at White Motion – subsidiary of the global automotive supplier Marelli – where he leads the vehicle security research team, assessing vehicle systems and training customers in state-of-the-art car-hacking techniques. Outside the garage, Kamel is an amateur chef, ukulele player, and fighting game enthusiast.
This class is run a little different from most classes. We provide you purpose-built recorded lectures instead of trapping you in realtime with live-lectures. But fear not, the instructor is always right there eagerly waiting to mingle with the students and answer any questions you have. (The instructor really likes being asked questions. It shows you're paying attention ;)). One of many benefits is that you can watch lectures at 2x speed and zoom ahead of the other students and get to the hands on labs quicker. Or if there's bits of material you already know, you can just skip them and move on to the bits you don't know! Another big benefit is that you get to take the full lectures and labs with you! That means if you forget stuff and then need it in 6 months, you can quickly re-bootstrap yourself! Or you can watch the class twice, to really grow those neural connections and cement it in your brain! And unlike live lectures, our lectures are always getting more factually accurate, by having any accidental errors edited out.
This class is designed to give you all the background you need to understand how x86-64 reset vector firmware works, and what the most common security misconfigurations are. It will prepare you to be able to read and understand the existing attack and defense research in the space, taking an explicit walk through of the attack and defense moves and counter-moves threat tree. And as always, this classes teaches you to be comfortable with Reading The Fun Manual (RTFM!) to go seek out the most accurate details of how things work, and to see out new problems in new areas that no one's read yet with a security mindset.You can also opt to attend this class on 23 & 24 Nov instead. To do so, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
This class teaches you about the fundamental hardware mechanisms which all operating systems, virtualization systems, and firmware *must* interact with in order to run successfully on x86 hardware. This is taught in a *mostly* OS-agnostic way focusing on Intel-isms rather than OS-isms (albeit with using Windows as reinforcement, thanks to its excellent kernel-level debugging support.) This class also teaches you to be comfortable with Reading The Fun Manual (RTFM!) to give you self-sufficiency when seeking out the most accurate details of how things work.You can also opt to attend this class on 23 & 24 Nov instead. To do so, just email email@example.com
This class teaches you how to disassemble binaries, read x86-64 assembly language, and debug black-box binaries in WinDbg and GDB. This knowledge of assembly is the fundamental skill which is required to learn reverse engineering and vulnerability exploitation. Reverse engineering is in turn a fundamental skill which is required for malware analysis and vulnerability hunting.
