Updated: Dec 28, 2020

SINCON 2020 Conference Deep-Tech Track

Day 2 (3 Jan 2021)


@ Main Stage


Automotive makers have advanced the way humans interact with their vehicles. Modern day vehicles now offer a whole suite of features and functions to enhance drivers' experience through communications with external devices and wireless infrastructure, creating what is known as Connected Vehicles.

In Infosec In the City, Singapore 2019, we spoke about how we built a prototype (Test Bench 1) to learn more about Automotive Cybersecurity. Continuing from our previous journey from Test Bench 1, we will now delve into Connected Vehicles and explore the journey of creating Test Bench 2. We will introduce new protocols apart from CAN bus and explain the overall architecture of the vehicles that we are working on, features vs. vulnerabilities. Finally, we will point out some of the learning points and challenges.
