Automotive Cybersecurity Industry Consortium CAN Bus Scanning Tool Project
David LeBlanc, Associate Research Scientist – The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute
The Automotive Cybersecurity Industry Consortium (ACIC) required development of a software tool for security testing of vendor-supplied ECUs, similar to the Nmap security scanner on traditional networks. The CAN Bus Scanning Tool allows for scanning a vehicle to identify and exercise available diagnostic services, as seen on the network. This is useful for designers seeking to enhance vehicle security by ensuring the network elements expose only those interactions that are intended. This project involved developing, demonstrating, and distributing a software tool among ACIC members that achieves these goals. The final report for this project will not be publicly available.
