Episode 14: Cars may not have keyboards and login screens, but they are crammed full of computers. These computers are responsible for an increasing number of critical functions in the car. There are even autonomous vehicles that require no human supervision. Because cars now run complicated software and contain many digital interfaces, automotive cybersecurity has become an increasingly important topic. In this show, special guests Robert Leale and Matt Rogers discuss just how digital components are embedded into modern cars, what cybersecurity threats exist, and why it’s important for researchers to continue hacking cars.
