SINCON 2021 Conference — Workshop
Day 2 (06 Nov 2021) 10.00am—10.45am @ Workshop Room
Introduction to In-Vehicular Networks (IVN) & Free CAN Bus Tools
Automotive security is a field of rising importance worldwide. Vehicles are becoming smarter than ever, equipped with processors, sensors, and new communication technologies to improve road safety and consumer comfort. Despite hosting a myriad of different technologies, the most fundamental factor differentiating automotive security from any other security discipline is its use of In-Vehicle Networks (IVN) — the nervous system of a car.
This workshop introduces the audience to the most widely used IVN technology in the world — CAN bus — and gives them a full hands-on experience without needing any hardware. Students learn to read data from a CAN bus, send CAN messages themselves, and even record traffic logs for advanced applications.
