  • Automobiles are equipped with Electronic Control Units (ECUs) that communicate via in-vehicle network protocol standards such as the Controller Area Network (CAN. [...] Key Method We implement the proposed cloaking attack and test it on two IDSs, namely, the current state-of-the-art IDS and its adaptation to the widely-used Network Time Protocol (NTP). We implement the cloaking attack on two hardware testbeds, a prototype and a real vehicle, and show that it is able to deceive both IDSs. We also introduce a…Expand Abstract
