As connected and autonomous vehicles grow in popularity, cybersecurity in vehicles has never been more important. Cars are home to many technologies, each with its own security needs and vulnerabilities. While there are countless disciplines that can be covered in an automotive security course, two great examples of relevant automotive networking technologies are In-vehicle Networks (Such as CAN) and Bluetooth Networks.

This course aims to introduce participants to the world of automotive cybersecurity and give them a chance to learn security testing techniques for vehicles in a hands-on environment. The hands-on exercises will give students the tools they need to test two of the most common network technologies found in modern vehicles.

*Advanced, hands-on Bluetooth security training is also available for private audiences on request. Please get in touch for more information.
