Today's Aftermarket technicians are challenged today in ways unimaginable just a few years prior. Modern cars are more computerized than ever. Infotainment and navigation systems, WiFi, automatic software updates, and other innovations aim to make driving more convenient. But vehicle technologies haven't kept pace with today's more hostile security environment, leaving millions vulnerable to attack.
The Car Hacker’s Handbook is the first book of its kind to take an in-depth look at the computer-based systems in modern cars that make them vulnerable to attack and exploitation.
The Car Hacker's Handbook will give you a deeper understanding of the computer systems and embedded software in modern vehicles. It begins by examining vulnerabilities and providing detailed explanations of communications over the CAN bus and between devices and systems.
Then, once you have an understanding of a vehicle's communication network, you'll learn how to intercept data and perform specific hacks to track vehicles, unlock doors, glitch engines, flood communication, and more. With a focus on low-cost, open source hacking tools such as Metasploit, Wireshark, Kayak, can-utils, and ChipWhisperer, The Car Hacker's Handbook will show you how to:
If you're curious about automotive security and have the urge to hack a two-ton computer, make The Car Hacker's Handbook your first stop.
