Automotive Vulnerability Reporting, Processing and Database – Part 2

Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences

The work in the SecForCARs project of the Institute for Energy-Efficient Mobility at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences focuses on dealing with automotive vulnerabilities. This has resulted in solutions for wide areas of the product life cycle of automotive components. Starting with the detection of vulnerabilities in the field, their responsible disclosure, remediation and storage in structured form, to the use of the return of the information obtained in the development process of new products.


Thus, the IEEM at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences provides a comprehensive kit of three tools offering solutions in the areas of (i.) Threat Analysis & Risk Assessment and Pentesting, (ii.) Threat Intelligence, and (iii.) Coordinated Vulnerability Reporting & Disclosure.

  1. Attack Processing Tool (Development phase)
  2. Automotive Vulnerability Database (Development & Operation phase)
  3. Automotive Vulnerability Reporting Platform-AVRP (Operation phase)

Part 2/2 of the video demonstrating the 3 tools shows the function and structure of the Automotive Vulnerability Reporting Platform.
