Your vehicle has been hacked

Vehicles are rapidly evolving for better user experience with various advanced technologies. The perception, communication and computation technologies are critical to enhancing vehicles’ capabilities and advancing autonomous vehicles. However, they also introduce additional vulnerabilities and entry points for hackers to leverage. This presentation will introduce popular and state-of-the-art cyberattacks on vehicles, including attacks on the keyless entry system, remote control on vehicles, and attacks on the latest autonomous vehicles. The presentation will cover related vehicle subsystems, attack implementations and attack results.
