    What if an armored combat vehicle was rapidly moving to enemy contact through rigorous terrain while facing enemy fire, when its navigational and targeting systems were suddenly given false, wrong or misleading information ... thus derailing the mission? What if its on-board data flow was instantly jammed, denied or disabled? Such a scenario, which would immediately compromise or even destroy an otherwise successful attack mission, could happen if a vehicle’s on-board serial bus were hacked by enemy cyber intruders. This possibility is increasingly realistic given the alarming pace at which enemy cyber attackers are leveraging new technologies to innovate previously unknown or impossible methods of intrusion. There is a critical need to increase security of a vehicle or aircraft’s data buses, which allows for the transmission of mission-critical information within and between platforms. “As long as you have physical access to a bus, you can intercept messages on that bus...
