November Meetup - Car Security with Chris Valasek

  • This location is shown only to members

Some of you guys may know Chris Valasek, and heard about his recent talk at DEF CON about car hacking.  It's gotten a little bit of press.  

Well we're going to be lucky enough to have him come in and give us this same exact talk, in person!  We are very excited to have him, and I hope you all are too.  

You are free to find your own parking situation, but by far the most convenient would be the Ingot Garage directly next door.  The garage opens to the public at 5:00pm, and more details such as the times and rates can be found here.

See you there,

Jon

    Is there any way to get documents and tools shown in the presentation?

      Yeah, very cool. I posted a couple of links in the talk description as well.

    Thanks to the presenter for a very interesting talk. Just wondering, what would be a good way to secure the car from attack but allow mechanics access for diagnostic testing? I'm guessing in this scenario that you'd want to give access to your particular mechanic for a certain period of time rather than granting access to all/any mechanic for all times. (Maybe use a time based password for the code?)

      From my point of view, the CAN network itself is vulnerable. Since it's broadcast environment. Protocols should be enhanced. Ford cars may install anti-viruses in near future ;)

      I posed this question to Chris and here is his response: "You have to remember that you can't make a mechanics job any more complicated. They have a hard enough time diagnosing problems w/ the current technology. Adding additional time / effort takes away from their profit margins, which is unacceptable. Generally speaking you want to limit diagnostic testing when the car is in a certain state, such as driving, instead of being up on jacks. I hope that answers the question. "
