Abstract

The Unified Diagnostics Services (UDS) have become an essential tool for manufacturers and technicians for servicing and updating vehicles. However, they are also the path by which hackers can penetrate the electronics of a vehicle, gain access to its ECUs, corrupt their software, and gain ultimate control of the vehicle itself. In this project, a data logger was developed to keep a running history of communication within the vehicle to help a forensic team determine what was happening to the electronics before, during, and after an attack. A prototype Data Logger was implemented using off-the-shelf microcontrollers and parts, and it successfully demonstrated the concept in a test bench that simulates an actual vehicle.
