Head Unit as a target for hackers

Head Unit as a target for hackers.
In recent years the problem of car hacking is raised more and more frequently. It concerns almost everyone: car manufacturers, OEM and information security specialists. Of course,  EU and  USA authorities are also interested in it and fund research in this field. As in information security industry some activities are just attempts to scare and some problems are deliberately overestimated, I would like to look into this subject without unnecessary emotions but keeping in mind that it's always best to err on the side of caution. In my own professional realm I deal with ConnectedCar system security and embedded solutions for vehicle systems. So I would like to talk about new threats in IoT and cars in the near future. This part is about potential attack vectors on Head Unit and its environment.
