Efficient Reverse Engineering of Automotive Firmware

The fi rmware executed by components found in a car provide a starting point for adversaries to obtain con fidential information and discover potential vulnerabilities. However, the process of reverse engineering a specific component is typically considered a complex and time-consuming task. In this paper we discuss several techniques which we used to significantly increase the efficiency of reverse engineering the fi rmware of an instrument cluster.
