How to hack a car

In this speedy episode of the Exploring Information Security podcast, Brandon Wilson joins me to discuss his adventures in hacking a car.

Brandon (@brandonlwilson) spoke at BSides Knoxville in 2017. I had the pleasure to be in attendance for his talk. The talk was technical and very interesting. Brandon talked about how he tried to take his old 90s car and fix it himself. The was a malfunction in the anti-theft system that kept the car from running. He decided to go deeper. Unfortunately, he was unable to fix his car. He did, however, learn a lot from the experience.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How Brandon got into car hacking?
  • What resources were available for hacking a car?
  • How long did the project take?
  • What tools are available for hacking a car?
