I am working on a project to secure CAN message sent along the CAN bus.I am using the various cryptographic techniques to ensure security.So the message sent by the sender has to be hashed and then the hashed message is received at the receiver side .Can this hashed message be viewed in wireshark?

I am working on a project to secure CAN message sent along the CAN bus.

Does that mean that there is currently no standard for encrypted CANbus messages, and you're working on developing an encryption mechanism for CANbus?

No there are encryption standards available to encrypt the CAN message But I am trying to combine various cryptographic techniques together. Initially, I want to implement the very basic cryptographic technique hash and see how it works in order to proceed further

Not sure if CAN bus messages get encrypted since my friends developed computer control for Acura via CAN bus to build autonomous car. Contact Eugene Kaspersky since he has developed OS devoted entirely for cars, preventing the injection of CAN bus messages from laptop.

I have to check what, if any CAN bus message can be saved with Wireshark for my bluetooth based OBDII plug.
