Abstract

Jaguar Land Rover is entering the market of autonomous vehicles a little late with an upcoming product which lets the driver remotely control the vehicle. But with development of this product, the risk of the vehicle being compromised is alarming. Since the product makes uses of Wi-Fi and as known, WPA2 has a few vulnerabilities, it is very necessary to secure the communication channel. It is a must because control of the vehicle completely relies on the instructions sent from the controller. If these instructions are modified on the way, it could prove very harmful. Though WPA2 has a few loopholes, some of this can be addressed easily. Channel can be secured by adding security measures like Digital Certificates, TLS and 2-way authentication. All these up the level of security of the transmission channel. This approach is implemented in this paper.
