Karamba Security’s Challenge in the Car Hacking Village at DEFCON

DEFCON is one of the biggest Hacker conferences – a blend of curious, creative, geeks and professionals come to one place with the aim of looking at the things we use every day in a different way and making them act differently than they were designed for. In practice, to make the event even more interesting, besides the lectures there are prize-winning competitions among all the conference’s participants. Every sponsor was asked to create, design, and operate a challenge for the competition, and each challenge had a few levels of difficulty. Every level offered points to the team that solved it. This year Karamba Security sponsored a capture-the-flag challenge, the RiCAN Morty Challenge, in the Car Hacking Village of DEFCON.

Karamba Security Suite, CES 2018, Las Vegas, NV.

CES started as a B2C tradeshow and B2B is now equally important. For the automotive industry, cybersecurity was one of the major areas of interest among OEMs and Tier-1s who came to Las Vegas to learn about attack vectors and prevention. They were already familiar, as you likely are, with our Autonomous Security solution, Carwall. They were keenly interested in Karamba’s new SafeCAN solution which we presented for the first time at CES in 85 private meetings and demos over three days.

CAN Bus - Controller Area Network bus - is a high-integrity serial bus system for networking intelligent devices adopted by the automotive industry and, in 1993, it became the international standard known as ISO 11898. A modern vehicle may have as many as 70 electronic control units (ECUs) for various subsystems connected to each other via CAN Bus to govern almost every function — from engine timing and traction control to side-mirror adjustment.

How to approach dumping a QNX Image

While integrating Karamba protection into a QNX IFS image, I found that I first needed to extract the contents of a ready IFS image in order to inspect the binaries on the build machine for Karamba whitelisting purposes. I needed to know what those binaries would look like in their “final” form, after they’ve been stripped of debug symbols and otherwise modified by the IFS building utility.

CAN Protocol Vulnerability

Recently, Trend Micro published a technical brief discussing a vulnerability they found in the CAN protocol, which enabled denial of service (DoS) attacks to be invisible to CAN-based intrusion detection solutions. In the technical brief, they recommended that car manufacturers change CAN protocol in their vehicle, in order to make cars immune to such DoS attacks.

Implementations to Automotive Connectivity

Connected cars increasingly rely on computer processors and upwards of 100 million lines of computer code to operate. With the proliferation of processors and vehicle software the cyberattack surface and sophistication of hacks has grown.

The federal government has ramped up its response with FBI warnings to automakers and consumers to “maintain awareness of potential issues and cybersecurity threats related to connected vehicle technologies in modern vehicles.” The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released guidelines to ensure automakers are designing cars to be safe against cyberattacks.

Security bugs in the connected vehicle

In A hacker’s guide to fixing automotive cybersecurity, Charlie Miller puts in perspective which cyber security challenges exist for the automotive industry. The article’s conclusion is that all software -even the most reliable- contains security bugs. Even the ones coming from software mammoths such as Microsoft, Google and Apple. The ramifications of these vulnerabilities in cars, evidently, can be severe.
