Developing jointly cyber security for CAN networks

On 2 May, CiA has scheduled a workshop on CAN cyber security. The workshop provides some presentations, but the main purpose is discussion and brainstorming.

Cyber security is becoming dramatically important, not just for passenger cars. Cyber security is a must for Internet of Things and a sister of functional safety. Carmakers are going to implement security on all networks. End of last year, Schneider Electric’s Triconix safety controller was attacked by a very sophisticated RAT (Remotely Accessible Trojan). Although it was an attack on a TCP/IP network, CAN-based networks could be attacked similarly.

Therefore, CiA is going to join forces: The first step is a workshop in Nuremberg (Germany) on 2 May, 2018. We would like to collect the already available solutions, standards, etc., in order to find the gaps and the missing links as well as to plan the next steps. The workshop is free-of-charge for CiA members. Non-members with a dedicated interest and experience in cyber security for embedded networks may participate on invitation. You can find here the detailed program of the workshop and register by email.
