Car electronics security

Modern automobiles are no longer mere mechanical devices; they are pervasively monitored and controlled by dozens of digital computers coordinated via internal vehicular networks. Experimental Security Analysis of a Modern Automobile report experimentally evaluates these issues on a modern automobile and demonstrate the fragility of the underlying system structure. The paper demonstrates that an attacker who is able to infiltrate virtually any Electronic Control Unit (ECU) can leverage this ability to completely circumvent a broad array of safety-critical systems. Practically every modern car has On-Board Diagnostics (OBD-II) service connector in them, and that was the interface those researchers used to hack the car electronics. The ODB-II connector must be located within three feet of the driver and must not require any tools to be revealed. Look under the dash and behind ashtrays. Fortuntaly for car owners this interface is a physical connector and not any hackable wireless interface.

    Some valuable thoughts here. Are you hopeful this is the accurate way to look at it though? My own experience is that everyone should pretty much live and let live because what one person ponders as just — another person simply does not. Human beings are going to do what they want to do. In the end, they always do. The most we can pray for is to highlight a few things here and there that hopefully, allows them to make just a little better informed decision. Otherwise, great post. You’re definitely making me think! –Chris

    Are they for real. I have many times thought that most Bose stuff is overpriced crap…
    Bose has always failed to impress me in the sound quality….

  12. tomi says:

    I disagree with that.
    I have never thought Bose as maker of any truly great amplifiers… more like pretty average stuff.
    Sennheiser is well known manufacturer of high quality microphones and headphones. I have never thought that company as an amplifier manufacturer.
