[Article] Want to Develop Apps for an Electric Car? Good Luck by Nate Swanner

Did I tell you I saw a Tesla store in person?

Sure did! At St. John's Town Center in Jacksonville, FL. Right by the Apple Store, ironically enough. Across the tiny avenue from the Disney Store and Nordstroms.

They just had one car and a bunch of employees.

Anyway, the article: Here.

API, or Application Programming Interface, is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software and applications - and that extends to the GUI in vehicles as well.





I've been in Lincoln SUVs with some that show a variety of things, from In-Cabin Wi-Fi to Sirius XM Radio to Android Auto.

Tesla doesn't have an official one. There are undercover hacks that do some fun things, but nothing official - and nothing that I know of that could compromise the integrity of the car - or your safety.

Considering how deeply these new cars are connected, I do think this is a relatively smart thing for now. This article worries because the envelope isn't being pushed. I get it. There's a certain amount of security risks with this, as there are with everything. Do you move forward and risk a malicious attacker with someone's life, or stay hidden?

Wireless Diagnostics on Mac OS; Packet Sniffing on a WLAN

There's a post sitting in my drafts about Wireshark and how to sniff packets out of the air that was going to be about sniffing for authentication packets for Wi-Fi hotspots that aren't broadcasting SSID (Which you shouldn't do apparently! It's still not safe). I was watching this video to find a little more information about how to properly use Monitoring mode on my Macbook to sniff for WLAN packets on the network. So when he said "Just open up Wireless Diagnostics and sniff your network (check your width and channel)." It was shocking to me.
