Preventing Cyber Attacks Before Any Damage

Zero-day attacks on autonomous vehicles present a major challenge for cybersecurity design. A newly discovered vulnerability could open the door for a hacker to infiltrate an externally connected ECU and tamper with critical safety systems. This scenario is not only possible–but probable–if we don’t find a way to stop hackers BEFORE they execute malicious code in the car.


False Positives
Heuristic-based security leads to false positives. This “better safe than sorry” approach may work for data protection, but if a cybersecurity solution in a vehicle blocks a legitimate safety function it could be disastrous.


No Room for Errors
It’s not sufficient to minimize the number of false positives. A single error could cost lives. In this talk, Karamba’s CEO, Ami Dotan, will explain how to overcome these challenges with deterministic security that hardens the vehicle’s ECU based on factory settings. Using seamless binary sealing, it automatically maps all function call sequences and creates a security policy that detects and blocks any attempt to download malware or initiate illegitimate function calls.


Shared Forensics
As a solution that detects and stops attacks–without false positives and with negligible performance impact –Karamba’s Autonomous Security software provides a comprehensive data set about the attack attempt. Any time an attempt to exploit a vulnerability, Karamba provides forensics to be shared with Auto-ISAC subscribers. This data includes:

  • Type of attack
  • ECU type
  • Process ID
  • Stack dump
  • Registers value
  • VIN numbers (optional)

In the spirit of Information Sharing and Analysis, we can collectively use this threat data and forensics to collaborate. We can find new ways to prevent exploit attempts and pinpoint security vulnerabilities in runtime.

National Council of ISACs and the Importance of Cross-Sector Sharing

Speaker: Denise Anderson, NH-ISAC

The National Council of ISACs (NCI), formed in 2003, comprises 24 organizations. It is a coordinating body designed to maximize information flow across the private sector critical infrastructures and with government. Information Sharing and Analysis Centers help private sector owners and operators protect their facilities, personnel, and customers from cyber and physical security threats and other hazards. Sector-based Information Sharing and Analysis Centers (ISACs) collaborate and coordinate with each other via the National Council of ISACs (NCI). ISACs collect, analyze and disseminate actionable threat information to their members and provide members with tools to mitigate risks and enhance resiliency. ISACs reach deep into their sectors, communicating critical information far and wide and maintaining sector-wide situational awareness.


Council members are present on the National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center (NCCIC) watch floor, and NCI representatives can embed with National Infrastructure Coordinating Center (NICC) during significant national incidents. The Council and individual members also collaborate with other agencies of the federal government, fusion centers, the State and Local Tribal Territorial Government Coordinating Council (SLTTGCC), the Regional Consortium Coordinating Council (RCCC), the Partnership for Critical Infrastructure Security (PCIS) — the Cross-Sector Council, and international partners.


This panel discussion will describe the NCI mission, vision, and its activities. It will cover how a multitude of ISACs are working cross-sector on a daily basis. The panelists will also discuss how it collaborates during incidents. Attendees will learn why it is important for the various sectors to share with each other and how collaborating makes the whole of industry and critical infrastructure and operators more resilient.

Improving the Cybersecurity Posture of Modern Vehicles

Modern vehicles continue to evolve incorporating software and electronics. These complex and software-intensive vehicles are advancing the possibility of vehicles that stop themselves and eventually drive themselves. These technological advances however also introduce new risks from a cybersecurity perspective. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) primary interest is in the potential safety ramifications of cybersecurity vulnerabilities. The Agency is conducting research and working closely with respective Federal Agencies, industry entities, and other stakeholders to support the industry find innovative solutions to protect consumers and their vehicles from cyber threats. Over the past 3 years, NHTSA and many other partners have produced several studies, best practices, and other documents to help industry improve the cybersecurity posture of modern vehicles. NHTSA looks forward to continued collaboration and intelligence sharing.

Hacking the Modern Day Car

The SAE J1962 connector, also known as the Data Link Connector (DLC), or the OBD (On Board Diagnostics) Port is required by California Air Resources Board and US EPA regulations to provide legislated data that reports on the health of the vehicle’s emission control system. OEMs do not have the option of not providing this connector or the legislated data. This access is done in many states via the “inspection and maintenance” process. OEMs also currently use the port as a convenient method to provide enhanced diagnostics information to the service community. This presentation will discuss this accessibility and potential mitigation strategies as applied to the vehicle hacking via this port.

Implementing and Managing Secure Authentication in the Automotive Industry

The last decade has seen an exponential growth in network-connected devices and applications used in the automotive industry. The growth of these technologies continues at a dizzying pace and has created a need for properly implemented and managed secure authentication, both between people and automotive systems and between applications and devices.


The challenges the automotive industry faces as it attempts to implement “trust anchors” and trusted authentication infrastructure is not due to a lack of technology, but in how a secure authentication infrastructure is implemented and managed throughout the lifecycle of the systems, devices, and applications. The challenges include key management, certificate issuance, certificate revocation, and adequately securing private keys. Additionally, the various stakeholders in the automotive industry is in need of convergence on the general topic of trust anchors and authentication, including an understanding of basic definitions, risks and benefits associated with various technology and implementation choices (such as symmetric and asymmetric cryptography), pre-conceived notions, crypto-agility, and global acceptance and considerations. While there has been much talk about how this would go about in various working groups throughout the automotive industry and technology space, there has been no convergence on the topic. This presentation will focus on what challenges the automotive industry faces in building and maintaining a securely authenticated ecosystem, how the industry is moving forward to address them and propose some solutions that can help address the challenges.

Panel R&D Needs and Challenges

Automotive cybersecurity is a relatively new field, and it significantly differs from cybersecurity in related domains such as entertainment, communication, and even medical and aviation. Automotive cybersecurity comes with very different risk models, level of technical and organizational complexity, and cost limitations, resulting in different solutions. At the same time, it would be foolish to not learn cybersecurity solutions from more mature industries. It is commonly understood that all stakeholders, including industry, government, and academia, need to collaborate to handle the topic and gain an advantage to malicious actor. This panel will provide the perspectives from those main stakeholders, including members from carmakers, suppliers, academia, and government.
