What's this event

In implementing automotive security measures, it's important to learn about the techniques used in attacks.A strong defense is difficult without an understanding of attackers' techniques.
Black Hat/DEF CON (held in Las Vegas) is an essential event for learning about attacker techniques, where hackers from around the world meet and reveal their techniques.

The 2015 Jeep hack shocked the world.
It was at Black Hat/DEF CON that a famed hacker announced the details of that hack.

Participants in this seminar, taught by an instructor from the highly popular hands-on Automotive Hacking course at Black Hat/DEF CON, spend a full day learning the basic methods of automotive hacking while actively taking part in related activities.
Instructor Robert Leale is a veteran engineer who has taught this program for six years, teaching the basics of automotive hacking to about 1000 students. This is the first time the program will be held in Japan.

The program is open to anybody interested in automotive security.
The program is structured to enable not only embedded software engineers and other professionals with no experience in security development but even beginners with no software development experience at all to get a grasp of the basic knowledge and concepts of automotive hacking.
