Automotive Cybersecurity for Automotive Technicians
The basics of cybersecurity threat models, high risk attack areas of vehicles, classes of attacks, and protecting vehicles from attacks are introduced. Standards and protocols related to automotive cybersecurity will be covered. Cybersecurity methods and penetration testing for vehicles will also be presented. Attacking connected vehicles will be discussed by reviewing vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications and wireless access protocols, such as IEEE 1609. Potential attacks on automated vehicles will be described.
Course Prerequisites include: basic electricity/electronics theory and/or automotive electronics basics, basic knowledge of the operation of traditional vehicle systems: brakes, suspension and steering, drivetrain, engine, engine electrical, emission controls, fuel and exhaust systems, environmental systems, etc.
