Connected Transport Industry Comes Together to Eliminate a Weak Entry Point for Hackers


A consortium of industry leaders in vehicle cybersecurity have come together to develop the CAN Data Diode, a creative development from the University of Tulsa’s Student CyberTruck Experience (CyTeX) program under the direction of Dr. Jeremy Daily.

The National Motor Freight Traffic Association, Inc. (NMFTA), the University of Tulsa, Irdeto, Geotab, DG Technologies and other industry experts are collaborating to identify and validate possible commercial applications such as securing Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs).

The CAN Data Diode is a hardware device that prevents communication from the ELD to a commercial vehicle, virtually eliminating the connected ELD device as a remote cyberattack surface. It is essentially a hardware firewall for connected vehicles.
