            The existing automotive Controller Area Network (CAN) is vulnerable. The absence of sender verification in its communication means that an attacker acting as a node on its network will be treated like a legitimate node that has always been present, allowing attackers to transmit and receive messages freely. This paper proposes a system that will allow nodes using CAN to identify legitimate messages and reject those that come from illegitimate nodes. In addition, the system provides resistance against replay attacks that can clog up the safety-critical real time networks.
