LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) is an indispensable sensor for precise long- and wide-range 3D sensing, which directly benefited the recent rapid deployment of autonomous driving (AD). Meanwhile, such a safety-critical application strongly motivates its security research. A recent line of research demonstrates that one can manipulate the LiDAR point cloud and fool object detection by firing malicious lasers against LiDAR. However, these efforts evaluate only a specific LiDAR (VLP-16) and do not consider the state-of-the-art defense mechanisms in the recent LiDARs, so-called next-generation LiDARs. In this WIP work, we report our recent progress in the security analysis of the next-generation LiDARs. We identify a new type of LiDAR spoofing attack applicable to a much more general and recent set of LiDARs. We find that our attack can remove >72% of points in a 10×10 m2 area and can remove real vehicles in the physical world. We also discuss our future plans.
