Tesla Announced to Open Source Its Software To Make Autonomous Vehicle Safer
With the upcoming rise of self-driving and more connected vehicles come an increased risk of hacking those vehicles with ill-intent.
Tesla, despite the common vulnerability of autonomous systems, has the programs that are considered impenetrable. With dozens of companies struggling to match the penetration security against hacking attempts, Tesla holds a benchmark of success. But here’s where they really excel at: Tesla is planning on sharing their security techniques and programs with the common user and other companies, or in savvy words, open sourcing their programs.
Elon Musk, the owner and CEO of Tesla, recently announced in his Tweet:
“Planning to open-source Tesla vehicle security software for free use by other car makers. Extremely important to a safe self-driving future for all.”
Although there have been alleged rumors about security breaches in Tesla’s systems, the said rumors are to be taken seriously and by open sourcing their security program, Tesla has showcased some pretty confident stance in their programs. Programmers and penetration testers hired by companies all over the world are going to understand and improve on the algorithms Tesla has been using.
Open-sourcing the software could also encourage security researchers to help make it even more secure by trying to find new vulnerabilities. Good job Tesla!
