When automotive security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek take the stage Thursday morning (August 4) at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas, they will outline new methods of CAN message injection. The two researchers who now work for Uber’s Advanced Technology Center will demonstrate how to physically seize control of the braking, steering, and acceleration systems in a vehicle.

However, this isn’t the panacea. In order to protect the CAN bus and cars at large, Uze said, “You also need intrusion detection and prevention system (IDS/IPS) that can create a feedback loop to detect anomalous traffic on the bus, and secure OTA software update solutions.” Trillium’s goal is a range of security technologies developed “under one roof with a unified API.”

Meanwhile, companies like Harman, Augus Cyber Security, Symantec and Intel are running a fierce race to add different pieces of technology to automotive security. The finish line is not in sight.
