Many countries consider the internet of things (IoT) as strategic industries and new economic growth engine in the future.
Purpose: The Internet of things (IoT), which will create a huge network of billions of devices (i.e., machines or things) communicating with one another, are facing many technical security challenges. One leading application of IoT is the connected automous vehicles.
Today’s modern cars are pervasively computerized and controlled by a heterogeneous combination of digital components, referred to as electronic control units (ECUs). Each vehicle may have between 20 to 100 ECUs. With the deployment of the wireless technology, the vehicle of the future will potentially be vulnerable to cyber-attacks and precautions need to be implemented early. Cyber-attacks on connected and precautions need to be implemented early. Cyber-attacks on connected cars and connected trucks that are largely computer controlled can bring chaos to the roads Our approach here is based on designing a detection algorithm as well as a mitigation strategy.
This talk will address the WAVE (wireless access vehicular environment) standard and its wireless infrastructure security vulnerability. We will discuss intrusion detection systems and the denial of service attacks on autonomous connected vehicles baser on the WAVE technology, how to detectsuch attack, and how to mitigate its effect on the vehicle communications infrastructure.
Securing the internet of things is a technical challenge and represents a major research and development area. Adenial of service attack detection method is proposed based on a two-state Markov chain. Further, a mitigation algorithm is also proposed.
