C’è molto di interessante nella richiesta di Charlie Miller per l’esenzione dal DMCA dei risultati delle ricerche sui sistemi di sicurezza degli autoveicoli, ma una frase che proferisce rende l’intero brano meritevole di essere letto.
I should add that I’m not necessarily judging the cybersecurity practices of automobile manufacturers. Very smart engineers at Microsoft and Google still don’t know how to make an attack-proof web browser. Every month, these companies produce patches to fix up security flaws in their products. Nobody knows how to write perfect code. So I don’t expect automobile manufacturers to produce perfect cars, but what I do want is the ability to evaluate their safety and security features for myself. I want as many researchers as possible to be looking at this code, finding flaws, suggesting patches, and improving it. I want to be able to trust the safety of my vehicle and the only way I can do that is to look at it myself.
