Security Testing

AUTOCRYPT's offensive security Red Team brings security solutions to test your vehicle's cybersecurity capabilities

As vehicles become more like supercomputers on wheels, mobility security is increasingly essential.

But it doesn’t stop there. 

Security is not limited simply to the vehicle itself, but as mobility extends to services and infrastructure, more avenues for vulnerabilities will open up: EVSEs, RSUs, and related networks. 

Testing these components before implementation into the mobility ecosystem is key to ensuring secured driving as well as wider adoption.


What is a Red Team?

A Red Team is a team of cybersecurity experts who utilize offensive tactics to systematically identify vulnerabilities in cybersecurity systems. At AUTOCRYPT, our Red Team utilizes various attack techniques to test in-vehicle, V2X, and other mobility-related systems. 


What we do

Vulnerability scanning

  • Software static testing: Uncover major issues in early development stages like leaks, buffer overflows, standard deviations. Prevention of increased development timescales
  • Software dynamic testing: Executed code testing vulnerabilities in runtime environments and behavior of dynamic variables

Fuzz testing

  • Test target reaction to invalid or random data (“fuzz”), monitoring for crashes, memory leaks, and failed code
  • High benefit-to-cost ratio, as fuzzing utilizes undefined behavior to trigger hidden bugs that were unforeseen

Penetration testing

  • Utilize known cyberattacks and vulnerabilities to simulate attacks on a combination of hardware, software, and services
  • Threat database ensures that vulnerabilities of various severity are utilized to initiate attack tests 

Customized consultations

  • After compiling a list of monitored vulnerabilities, issues, and threats, Red Team experts can work with the client to classify priorities for remedying the security protocol
  • OEMs, Tier-1 suppliers, and service providers alike can benefit from a comprehensive assessment of their hardware, software, and services, as issues can be resolved earlier in the development and design process before heading to market

Regulation compliance

  • As vehicles become increasingly connected, regulations mandating cybersecurity management in vehicles has become increasingly widespread. By far, the most prevalent of these is WP.29’s regulations for the requirement of automotive cybersecurity management systems (CSMS) and software update management systems (SUMS), resulting in R155 and R156 regulations respectively
  • Testing is a crucial part of obtaining cybersecurity type approval for compliance
