By India Today Web Desk: Vikash Chaudhary, CEO of HackersEra, India’s first vehicle PenTest company, has been invited as a featured speaker at the world’s largest three-day annual hacking and cyber security convention organized by Black Hat Middle East and Africa ( Black Hat MEA) in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Chaudhary gave a detailed presentation on his latest research on automotive security tools for Can Bus Hacking, called ‘HackersEra V1’, to global cyber security experts and business owners around the world.
HackersEra CEO Vikash Chaudhary said, “It was a great opportunity for me to give an in-depth presentation to global cyber security experts and industry leaders about the methodology and tool for CAN Bus hacking in the automotive industry. We offered ours. -kind of a catchy name—HackersEra V1—because it’s simple to use for CAN Bus security assessment.” During the Riyadh season each year, Saudi Arabia hosts Black Hat MEA, formerly @HACK, over the three days. Cyber Security and Hacking Convention. It is one of the largest gatherings of the global hacking and cyber security community. The Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming and Drones (SAFCSP) and Informa tech hosted the event in collaboration with the BlackHat Group. After years of automotive security research and development of the CAN Bus hacking security tool, Vikash Chaudhary of HackersEra spoke on “Attacking Methods for CAN Bus Protocol Tracing” at the BlackHat MEA e conference.
Elaborating on CAN Bus hacking, Chaudhary said that the Controller Area Network (CAN bus) bus coordinates communication within a vehicle. This is important because the machine uses electrical impulses for so many functions. The car has several features such as door locks, a speedometer, fuel gauge and brake and accelerator buttons. Some of these gadgets rely on this network for their communication needs. A control network was developed because vehicles are complicated machines with a large number of components that must communicate with each other.
The CAN bus is a communication system in all vehicles, including those powered by conventional internal combustion engines and modern vehicles. Any device on the network can create a message in a standard format and transmit it sequentially. The device with the highest priority will continue, while the device with the lowest priority will wait. Vikash then demonstrated his tools and showed how an attacker could use them to exploit them. HackersEra is at an advanced stage of developing new techniques and methodologies in the CAN Bus hacking arena. The company plans to integrate secure CAN bypass techniques, CAN IDS bypass methodologies and UDS exploitation techniques, which will make HackersEra stand out in the world’s automotive cyber security space.
CAN Bus, according to Chaudhary, has various exploitation capabilities including CAN BUS Sniffing & Replay Attack, CAN Bus Reverse Engineering – Automation, CAN Bus Message Injection, Common CAN Fuzzing, Dynamic CAN Fuzzing, CAN BUS Load Attack, CAN DOS Attack, CAN BUS -OFF Attack, UDS Hard Reset, UDS Dump DIDS, UDS Fuzzing, UDS Dynamic Fuzzing etc.
BlackHat MEA was the largest infosec event held in 2022. The event brought together global CISOs from front-page companies, elite ethical hackers, more BlackHat trainers than anywhere except Vegas, and 30,000 visitors. The festive atmosphere and stunning design of the event set a new standard for the infosec community.
MEA’s BlackHat was a flagship cybersecurity event with year-round ethical hacking and offensive security courses. This global information security event took infosec light years from the norm and pushed it to the limit.
