Welcome to another episode of The Vehicle Network Podcast. In this instalment, we delve deep into the world of ethical car hacking. Our guest for this episode is none other than Ian Tabor, widely recognised as "Mintynet," a renowned ethical car hacker and who heads up the UK arm of the Car Hacking Village.
In recent times, Ian has been making headlines together with Dr Ken Tindall (episode 7) for thier ground-breaking work in reverse engineering and uncovering a substantial exploit in modern vehicles. This exploit involves a method known as "CAN injection," which has revealed yet another method of modern vehicle compromise that has received worldwide media attention.
During our conversation, Ian takes us on a journey through his previous exploits in the world of ethical car hacking, providing insights into the complexities and vulnerabilities of automotive systems. But that's not all; he'll also share the fascinating story of "PD0," his ingenious creation – a car in a box – born from the successful hack of his own vehicle.
So, buckle up and get ready to explore the world of ethical car hacking. Tune in as we uncover the secrets, challenges, and triumphs of this intriguing intersection between technology and security with none other than the one and only Mintynet himself!
In this episode, we delve into the cutting-edge world of crime scene analysis and collision investigation technology with our guest, Marcus Rowe. Currently serving as the Business Director for Public Safety and Forensics at Leica Geosystems, Marcus brings a wealth of expertise from his previous role as a Senior Forensic Collision Investigator at Devon & Cornwall Police.
Join us as we uncover the fascinating world of 3D scanning technology and its revolutionary impact on capturing collision and crime scenes. Marcus sheds light on the latest advancements in this field, highlighting how these innovations have transformed the way investigators approach their work.
Throughout the episode, we explore the wide-ranging applications of 3D scanning technology beyond its use in crime and collision scenes. Marcus discusses how this technology has found utility in fire investigation and public safety, further expanding its reach and potential for societal benefit.
Listeners will gain valuable insights into the benefits of 3D scanning technology, such as its ability to preserve accurate and detailed representations of scenes, enhance collaboration among investigative teams, and ultimately improve the accuracy of analyses and reconstructions.
Tune in to this enlightening conversation as Marcus provides a comprehensive overview of the present and future of 3D scanning technology in the realm of public safety, forensics, and beyond. Whether you're a technology enthusiast, a crime scene investigator, or simply curious about the latest advancements in forensic science, this podcast episode promises to deliver thought-provoking insights and a deeper understanding of the role technology plays in modern investigative practices.
Ben Johnson is an experienced fault finder specialising in BMW vehicles. He is from the UK but now based in Finland with coming up to 30 years experience in the Automotive Industry. This has seen him work for a number of different manufactures and in different regions of the world.
Ben has recently launched the 'All Mech Newsletter' where he publishes some of his work to the community he is building around fault finding. He is active on LinkedIn posting engaging content from his day to day work.
In this episode we speak to Ben about his experiences over his career to date and along with his approach to fault finding and how he resolves complex faults where others have tried and failed.
We ask Ben about the importance of checking for faults on vehicles involved in Vehicle Systems Forensics Examinations and some of the reliability of BMW infotainment and telematics systems.
Ben explains some of the common networks seen in BMW vehicles and how they work and can be exploited to detect faults.
We discuss the considerations of repair versus replacement parts and what investigators need to be on the look out for in these instances.
