The lecture covers security issues in modern automobiles and Industrial Control Systems and proposes Deep Learning, Federated Learning-based solutions to address them. The CAN bus system used in modern cars lacks basic security features, making it susceptible to attacks such as DoS, Fuzzing, and Spoofing. Similarly, the Modbus RS-485 protocol used in smart meters lacks authentication and encryption mechanisms, making it vulnerable to attacks. As a countermeasure, an intrusion detection system (IDS) using FL approach can effectively detect malicious activities and ensure data protection from intruders.

The lecture is structured as follows:                                                      

  • Security issues of modern automotive and ICS systems
  • Proposed defense verification platform for the CAN bus system
  • Development of a deep learning-based IDS
  • Development of automotive and Modbus attack datasets
  • Design of an effective pre-processing method to develop an efficient model regarding attack detection.
  • Evaluation of the significance of the hyper-parameter values to develop a robust IDS.
