Abstract: I will describe a security research project of Toyota InfoTechnology Center. The ratio of electronics to vehicle equipment is steadily increasing. And novel vehicles will also have connectibility to public networks to provide many kinds of services. Therefore, they are expected to suffer from a wide variety of threats and the electronic control units (ECUs) embedded in them may execute malicious programs because of tampering. A requirement of vehicle system is difference to conventional embedded systems, e.g. cellular phone or home appliances. So it it hard to introduce existing technologies into vehicle systems without modifications. In this talk I will show these requirements and feature plan of our research.
