Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Technorati, 

According to the conversations I have had at MWC with the companies like Nokia Networks providing 5G and network services for IoT, M2M, connected cars, etc., they say these networks are being built with enhanced encrypted security. 

These cars need to have a different kind of security, stronger than what smartphones have, because they could be used as potential weapons. Just imagine that someone thinks of crashing a car like they crashed the planes into the WTC in New York. :/

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Is there already such a thing as 'car hackers'?

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
@Susan   I was thinking of network scanners.  The same method hackers use on open networks.

Re: Where does this leave motorsports?
Whoopty, 

I am happy you have addressed this question. :) Indeed, as you did, I thought about this as well. I think you have missed the second page of the story, here is the link: http://www.informationweek.com/it-life/mwc-2016-paves-path-for-connected-cars-/a/d-id/1324462?page_number=2 < - Connected cars and Formula 1 

British F1 driver Lewis Hamilton doesn't think they will replace drivers in motorsports. :) After you read the second page, let me know if you have questions.

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
@Susan, exactly.

I'm getting a little tired of the Apple-FBI debate. I still think it is one of the best publicity stories for Apple in a long time. (admittedly, not a fan of apple, but...)

Technorati, 

The use of scanners? What exactly do you have in mind?

Re: Where does this leave motorsports?
@Whoopty   Interesting question.  It will be equally interesting to see how organizations such as NASCAR  react and ultimately incorporate these changes into their operation.

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
@Susan Thanks for addressing my not so easy to anwser question.   I hope new techniques in security will come about as a result of connected cars, true it would be a major breakthrough, but we need one in this area.

I am fortunate to have a car with some connectivity, and since I have had no issues as of yet regarding security, I would continue to support "some connectivity" but it would also be nice to have the option to totally disable and enable it.

Thanks for asking ! : )
