Alarms come with a mix of features. Remote car alarms typically consist of an additional radio receiver that allows the owner to wirelessly control the alarm from a key fob. Thank you. personal goal statement
@dvk0, well, certinaly this is a cool video. What it shows, though, is not necessarily an answer to the question whether a car or a ship can be hacked; it is about where the weak link resides within any system that an attacker can go after. In this particular case, it is clearly the GPS. In the case of cars, it wasn't GPS, but there are a number of other attack surfaces that researchers exposed.
May be you are right, but Cars are not being controlled by GPS. And Securing the car from all known threats it responsibility of the manufacturer, so this thread of security enhancement will any way continue.
Yes, It was a very good source of information, SHE (Secure Hardware Extension) and EVITA, are the emerging standards for Automotive Electronic Security, and it was a very surprising to me that virtually all the electronics giants are working on it name it a few like Mentor Graphics, Toshiba, Freescale, Renesas and the list continues.
You are right SHE enabled automotive electronics will be soon getting seen in the general automobiles.
Very interesting thread...which brings in my mind a key point whether cyber or physical threats are more important...when we discuss car hacking possibility it sounds worrysome...until we realize that 40,000 people annualy die in car crashes already...so even with the best technology you can get hit from behind by a teenager texting (nothing against teenagers, just an example)
Several years ago there was a demo of hooking into the bluetooth infrastructure on cars using directional antennas from a highway overpass (the authors injected audio into the sound system, and could visually confirm success by observing driver's reaction :)
The thinking then is that the car manufacturers could not resist introducing integrated in-vehicle networks, which opens up a possibility of a horizontal access escalation from the sound/entertainment network to the car control network. The demonstration of CAN/OBD vulnerabilities should make people think in terms of integrated, interdependent systems that need multilayer security.
