"With an increasing demand for electric vehicles and autonomous driving, many components of a vehicle are being replaced as electric components. This implicates the possibility of an increase in the malfunction of electric components due to unknown electromagnetic interferences. In this reason, malicious intentional electromagnetic interference (IEMI) is being considered as a growing threat for the current and next generation of automotive technology.

In the first topic, the transfer function between the IEMI attacker and the engine control unit (ECU) circuit in an automobile is extracted to analyze how the IEMI affects the vehicle.

In the second topic, to mimic the electromagnetic environment which can affect the battery system with inducing a current passing through the battery, the current is intentionally injected to the battery system with a bulk current injection (BCI) probe and it is investigated that how this coupled current can affect the battery with the parallel LC resonance of which the inductance comes from the wire and the capacitance comes from the bypass capacitor before voltage regulator module (VRM)"--Abstract, page iv.
