The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released a report titled ” Vehicle-to-Vehicle Communications: Readiness of V2V Technology for Application .” It’s very long, and mostly not interesting to me, but there are security concerns sprinkled throughout: both authentication to ensure that all the communications are accurate and can’t be spoofed, and privacy to ensure that the communications can’t be used to track cars. It’s nice to see this sort of thing thought about in the beginning, when the system is first being designed, and not tacked on at the end.
Months after it was found in August, scientists have dissected a colossal squid.
What’s interesting about this story is not that the cell phone system can track your location worldwide. That makes sense; the system has to know where you are. What’s interesting about this story is that anyone can do it.
