CANalyzat0r: Security analysis toolkit for proprietary car protocols

My first reaction is “the world doesn’t need another fucking open source CAN analysis tool” but

  • This isn’t written in Java like Kayak, which makes it easier to modify for most people. Also Kayak just generally blows.

  • SavvyCAN looks like it supports SocketCAN finally (instead of needing to get a Macchina or something) but this tool looks more usable.

  • Thank fucking god it’s written in Python 3. Infosec tools need to stop using Python 2. LOOKING AT YOU, CARINGCARIBOU!

It’s not clear to me at a glance what file formats this supports, which is the one thing that gives me pause. If it has DBC support, or if they add it, that would be baller.
