The chain of custody of those codes and chipsis going to be more important than ever before.

I am not so sure that I am comfortable with a trust element buried deep inside the car. Personally, I would prefer to have it accessible and removable or even remotely accessed. A paradigm where my authorizations were in my cell phone might even be attractive. Yes, it opens up other issues, but at least I can loan or sell my car without worrying about giving away my credit card numbers in the process.

At a minimum it needs two-factor authentication. Biometric identification built into the car could be useful along those lines, given that cars gain from personalization anyway. There also needs to be secure wipe and authorization lock in the system.

That's a really good point, LarryM99. You wrote"

I wonder if this could be even remotely possible. I'd check.

There are two talks coming up at DEFCon 21 and BlackHAT in the next couple weeks on car hacking. Both should really help to get people understanding the risks and possibilities in this area and why addressing security should be as important as it is for all other control systems. 

I ran across this short YouTube video published recently by one of the speakers, he demos control of steering:

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
