Abstract
)


It is predicted by Ericsson
that there will be 50 billion IP
-
connected devices by 2020, and wireless
technologies will be embedded in a wide range of products, ranging from coffee makers, automobiles, utility
meters, and implantable medical devices. The most important issue that will

affect the success of future embedded
systems is their security. Sadly, many embedded systems were not designed with security in mind and rely on
"security through obscurity," e.g., proprietary communication protocols. In this talk, we will show our findi
ngs on
analyzing the security and privacy vulnerability of two widely
-
adopted commodity devices: the tire pressure
monitoring system (TPMS) and automatic meter reading (AMR). To analyze the security and privacy
vulnerabilities of both systems, we reverse
-
e
ngineered the proprietary communication protocols using GNU Radio
in conjunction with the Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP), a low
-
cost out
-
of
-
shelf software radio
platform. We performed our analysis using both laboratory experiments with isolated

tire pressure sensor modules
or AMR meters, and real world experiments with complete systems. We discovered several risks associated with
both systems, ranging from privacy breaches to spoofing attacks.

徐文渊博士简介
(Bio)
:


Wenyuan Xu is an assistant professor
in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of
South Carolina. She received her Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from Rutgers University in
2007, M.S. degree in computer science and engineering from Zhejiang Univers
ity in 2001, and B.S. degree in
electrical engineering with the highest honor from Zhejiang University in 1998. Broadly, her research interest
focuses on wireless networking and network security. Her prior research results have led to link
-
layer jamming
de
tection and defense strategies for repairing networks in the presence of radio interference. More recently, she is
investigating security and privacy vulnerabilities in emerging wireless networks (smart meters and medical
devices), developing cross
-
layer a
pproaches to cope with jamming attacks, and build 'biomimetic' sensor networks
for climate change studies in Intertidal Ecosystems. She received NSF Career Award in 2009 and her research has
appeared on CNN national TV, MIT technology Review, ABC news, and

many other media outlets.
