CSA 431 - Automobile and IoT Forensics

(3 credits)
Modern automobiles have become technological marvels that can virtually drive themselves. From infotainment, telematics, and navigation systems, to mobile Wi-Fi hotspots and Bluetooth connectivity, your automobile is equipped with almost 70 computers to make your driving experience safer and more convenient. As these systems evolve and become even more powerful and sophisticated, the value of the historical data and evidence they contain increases as well. Likewise, the Internet of Things (IoT) is quickly evolving and establishing itself as a necessary part of everyday life. It includes personal assistants, doorbells, cameras, refrigerators, and countless other devices connected to the Internet and controlled by your mobile device. This course is an advanced-level course that walks students through the various computer systems on a modern automobile and IoT device, examines the relevant data they contain, and teaches methods and tools to extract, analyze, and interpret relevant data. Prerequisite(s): CSA 202 . Spring (alternate years).
