Abstract

As wireless and telecommunicaton infrastructure communications have been integrated into modern vehicle systems (i.e., infotainment systems and vehicle to vehicle systems), the security implications on the relatively unchanged underlying network protocols inside the vehicles are investigated by researchers and industrial experts in the corresponding domain. Some researchers have achieved the investigation by using actual vehicles or vehicle components, and although this is an effective way to produce an accurate testing environment it provides little or no flexibility in its configuration. In this work, we produce a testbed architecture for vehicle security investigation that not only can reproduce the complexity of numerous vehicle control units running at real time inside the vehicle CAN bus, but is also reconfigurable giving the testbed the ability to replicate various test configurations. We create a prototype of the testbed and conduct an experiment to demonstrate a new type of security attack through an infotainment gateway in the testbed, the source code of the prototype and the test data of the experiment are all uploaded for sharing.
