Isn't the main security concern network access? If you can put a USB
stick into the head unit then you have physical access. If you don't
have physical security, you have no security at all. So IVI software
security should most likely focus on access to the head unit through
In the automotive case it's likely going to be through wifi and radio
interfaces right? The current WPA and other security options for wifi
are pretty weak and that is widely known. There are other security
mechanisms but it seems likely that they will come through mainstream
Linux development. That is to say, what are the specific automotive
security concerns that the current security research in Linux does not
Again, I'm not referring to physical access here since top of the line
armored Mercedes get stolen, how would IVI software help there?
