It’s written by cyber security expert Alissa Knight, and seeks to provide guidance and preventative tactics to keep cars secure as in-vehicle networks become potentially reachable from anywhere. Basically, keeping connected cars safe without sacrificing connectivity, say the publishers.
Hacking Connected Cars deconstructs the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used to hack into connected cars and autonomous vehicles to help you identify and mitigate vulnerabilities affecting cyber-physical vehicles. Written by a veteran of risk management and penetration testing of IoT devices and connected cars, this book provides a detailed account of how to perform penetration testing, threat modeling, and risk assessments of telematics control units and infotainment systems. This book demonstrates how vulnerabilities in wireless networking, Bluetooth, and GSM can be exploited to affect confidentiality, integrity, and availability of connected cars.
It’s aimed at cybersecurity professionals who may not be experts in vehicle mechatronics, as well as security practitioners, researchers, and vendors
Areas the book covers include: penetration testing of infotainment systems and telematics control units, analysing risk levels surrounding various vulnerabilities (affecting confidentiality, integrity, and availability) and a look at the tactics, techniques, and procedures used by hackers.
As anyone who has thought about this for moment realises – IoT and connected systems bring massive security risks along with any convenience.
Alissa Knight has worked in cybersecurity for more than 20 years, says Wiley. For the past ten years, she has focused her vulnerability research into hacking connected cars, embedded systems, and IoT devices for clients in the United States, Middle East, Europe, and Asia.
She is the Group CEO of Brier & Thorn and is also the managing partner at Knight Ink. Described as a serial entrepreneur, Alissa was the CEO of Applied Watch and Netstream. You can follow her on Twitter @alissaknight.
