Vehicle Keyfob Reconnaissance & Attacks Speaker: Samy Kamkar
In this talk I’ll share the exciting details on researching and creating attack tools to perform automated wireless keyfob reconnaissance and demonstrate wirelessly unlocking and starting cars. This will focus primarily on using low cost tools, investigating proprietary chips and protocols (no datasheets available), and creating new tools to aid in research.
I’ll describe how vehicles communicate with keyfobs and vice versa (LF & UHF), along with the details of an entirely new device I’ve developed that can automatically detect the makes and models of keyfobs nearby. Once the keyfobs have been detected, the attacker can swipe to choose a vehicle, and the device can wirelessly unlock & start the ignition once a second attacker is nearby the vehicle. It’s like Tinder, but for cars.
