    Securing SAE J1939 Heavy-Duty Vehicles In-Vehicle Networks

    “One size fit all” does not work. Every person needs a tailor-made suit that is custom made to the exact size and measures of its owner. Since not all networks and protocols were created equal, so do their cybersecurity protection suits need to be adjusted to their specific characteristics, threat models and anticipated attack vectors. The SAE International, previously known as the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J1939 designed for the heavy-duty vehicles is no different in this concept. This presentation will review the J1939 protocol and networks from the cyber security perspective highlighting the specific features and vulnerabilities that should be taken into account when engaging in the task of protecting a vehicle. Furthermore, this presentation will focus and address only the specific item related to the protocol and not the generic cybersecurity threats and protection mechanism relevant to many other protocols.
