Former Tesla Intern Releases $60 Full Open Source Car Hacking Kit For The Masses article tells about new tool to get your hands on car electronics. CANard tool will make it cheaper and easier than ever before for tinkerers to get to the innards of their connected cars to determine if there are any useful tweaks they can make, or any worrisome security vulnerabilities that more malicious hackers could exploit. CANard programming is based on Python language. To use CANard, you will need CANtact, a CAN to USB interface for the low, low price of $59.95. <the hardware is open source too, meaning it’s easily replicable.
It should allow security researchers of all ilks to easily probe cars for weaknesses. As vehicles can have upwards of 100 million lines of code running on them, it’s makes it essential as many security researchers as possible can validate these systems. Previously, car hacking was the domain of those who had access to more expensive, bespoke hardware and knew the protocols used by cars.
Or have more limited options what can be made by using cheap ODB adaters like OBD2 Bluetooth adapter I just tested and use ready made apps for it.
