Faculty Development Academy on Automobile Security - Car Penetration Testing

Two available sessions on August 10 & 12. Register for the 8/10 event.
In-person at the Experience STEAM event at Mall of America

Event Description:

Faculty from both cyber and non-cyber fields, including Automotive Technology, Information Technology, Automation and Manufacturing, and Computer Science are encouraged to attend this event. 

Most modern vehicles connect to devices around them through Vehicle to Everything (V2X) technologies. As vehicles advance with more autonomous capabilities, digital systems, and automation, their attack surface increases exponentially, making them increasingly vulnerable to cyber attacks. Automobile hacking is a fascinating area of penetration testing and hacking.

This one-day academy will expand faculty knowledge and the ability to incorporate new cybersecurity content in existing classes. The academy incorporates demonstration and hands-on instruction, emphasizing participants’ ability to re-create workshop conditions in their classroom.  Attendees will need to bring a laptop.

Academy Objectives:

  • Describe the common vulnerabilities associated with vehicles and autonomous systems.
  • Describe potential impacts of vulnerabilities associated with vehicles and autonomous systems.
  • Describe the communication media used to control vehicles and autonomous systems.
  • Demonstrate the use of vehicles and autonomous vehicle control applications and simulators.
  • Demonstrate attacking vehicles and autonomous systems.
  • Identify types of security measures that work best in automated systems.

Event Instructor:

Dr. Bryson Payne, University of North Georgia
