Security research and teaching using cyber-physical systems (e.g., automotive networks) is challenging because of the need to replicate the interactions between the hardware components and the control software of the systems. These interactions are challenging to replicate because of the dynamic inputs in real-world environments that cause various interactions of the hardware components and control software within the network. In particular, automotive networks are challenging for security research and teaching because although the protocols of the automotive networks are standardized (e.g., CAN, LIN), the implementation details by each automotive manufacturer are not standardized and are generally not publicly available.
