Yoshi Kohno on “Can Science Stop Crime?”
The Seattle Times discusses Tadayoshi Kohno’s appearance on NOVA scienceNOW, in an episode that examines whether science can help solve crime.
Appearing at the end of the hourlong show, Kohno demonstrates how he hacks into a car — opening its doors, starting the engine, and then, dramatically, taking control of its brakes to bring the vehicle to a skidding stop. Every system out there could be compromised in some way, by some adversary,” Kohno said. “My biggest concern about the future is we’re going to have this ubiquitous ‘Internet of things,’ but we haven’t thought adequately about computer security.”
