Tesla to release vehicle security source code

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has voiced his intention to release the source code for Tesla’s car security software in an effort to improve the security of future self-driving cars.

Following a Q&A session at the DEFCON hacking conference, Musk tweeted that he planned to open-source the carmaker’s security software.

He stated that the software would be important for improving the safety of future vehicles.

Earlier this year, Tesla open-sourced the buildroot material used to build the system image on its Autopilot platform in addition to the code for the Nvidia-based infotainment systems in the Model S and Model X.

The manufacturer has not released the source code for its Autopilot self-driving software or the Nvidia applications it runs on its infotainment system.
