    LibreCAN: Automated CAN Message Translator

    In this talk, I present LibreCAN , a system to automatically translate the majority of CAN messages with minimal effort. The protocol is designed to save security researchers the time and effort they spend manually reverse-engineering the CAN messaging format of each vehicle that they study. This makes it easier to determine how new attacks can be used against a number of makes and models at once and design necessary defenses.
