  • Publication number: 20220116405
    Abstract: An electronic control unit is connected to a network in an in-vehicle network system. The electronic control unit includes a first control circuit and a second control circuit. The first control circuit is connected to the network via the second control circuit. The second control circuit performs a first determination process on a frame to determine conformity of the frame with a first rule. Upon determining that the frame conforms to the first rule, the second control circuit transmits the frame to the first control circuit. The first control circuit performs a second determination process on the frame to determine conformity of the frame with a second rule. The second rule is different from the first rule.

  • Patent number: 11296965
    Abstract: An abnormality detection method is provided. The abnormality detection method is for detecting an abnormality that may be transmitted to a bus in an on-board network system. The on-board network system includes a plurality of electronic controllers that transmit and receive messages via the bus in a mobility entity. In the abnormality detection method, for example, a gateway transmits identification information to a server and receives a response determining a unit time. An operation process is performed using feature information based on a number of messages received from the bus per the determined unit time and using a model indicating a criterion in terms of a message occurrence frequency. A judgment is made as to an abnormality according to a result of the operation process.

    Abstract: A method for use in a network communication system including a plurality of electronic controllers that communicate with each other via a bus in accordance with a Controller Area Network (CAN) protocol determines whether or not content of a predetermined field in a frame which has started to be transmitted meets a predetermined condition indicating fraud. In a case where the content of the predetermined field meets the predetermined condition, a frame including predetermined consecutive dominant bits for notifying an anomaly is transmitted before an end of the frame is transmitted. A number of times the frame including the predetermined consecutive dominant bits is transmitted is recorded for each identifier (ID) represented by content of an ID field included in a plurality of frames which has been transmitted. A malicious electronic controller is determined in accordance with the number of times recorded for each ID.

  • Publication number: 20210273966
    Abstract: In an anomaly detection method that determines whether each frame in observation data constituted by a collection of frames sent and received over a communication network system is anomalous, a difference between a data distribution of a feature amount extracted from the frame in the observation data and a data distribution for a collection of frames sent and received over the communication network system, obtained at a different timing from the observation data, is calculated. A frame having a feature amount for which the difference is predetermined value or higher is determined to be an anomalous frame. An anomaly contribution level of feature amounts extracted from the frame determined to be an anomalous frame is calculated, and an anomalous payload part, which is at least one part of the payload corresponding to the feature amount for which the anomaly contribution level is at least the predetermined value, is output.
