The Car Hacker's Handbook

The Car Hacker's Handbook

Regular price $49.95

Modern cars are more computerized than ever. Infotainment and navigation systems, Wi-Fi, 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 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:

  • Build an accurate threat model for your vehicle
  • Reverse engineer the CAN bus to fake engine signals
  • Exploit vulnerabilities in diagnostic and data-logging systems
  • Hack the ECU and other firmware and embedded systems
  • Feed exploits through infotainment and vehicle-to-vehicle communication systems
  • Override factory settings with performance-tuning techniques
  • Build physical and virtual test benches to try out exploits safely

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.
