Autonomous vehicle two-factor authentication: Safety in keyless vehicle systems
by Tse, Gilbert, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 43; 10105281
Abstract (Summary)

With the future of the automobile industry, that is autonomous self-driving vehicles, and the popularity of crowd sharing of vehicles as a transportation service (e.g. Uber and Lyft), there is potential for a combination of the two where an owner would rent out their vehicle to another person who is requesting a ride through a mobile application. This project explored the potential idea where a user can request a vehicle and will need to provide credentials to access the vehicle. In particular, two-factor authentication is explored using a traditional username and password login and the one-time password generator YubiKey. The network traffic is analyzed and the results provided insight into security vulnerabilities on a private network, and over the Internet, and addresses issues pertaining to the popularity of Internet of Things. Future work involves planning to investigate more secure methods of information transfer and network segmentation.
