Elon Musk plans to turn Tesla Software Code into Open Source

open, sourceOne of the biggest advantages of converting your account to open source is to allow independent security researchers to access the code and track vulnerabilities that can be overlooked during an internal audit.

A relatively new field that is becoming more and more a threat to its safety is the world of connected cars and self-propelled vehicles.

To make things safer, its CEO Tesla, Elon Musk, has suggested that he could turn Tesla software into open source for a "safe future for all."

Tesla's history so far has not been very impressive in terms of compliance with open source rules. After many criticisms, just last May, Tesla announced plans to make open source part of the software code that used many licensed GPL technologies.

We do not yet know whether Elon Musk really wants to act in accordance with his promise and to enhance the safety of the connected cars. In the long run, it is also expected that Tesla will benefit from marketing, as Musk can boast of a better security standard than others.

In the past, we met incidents where Tesla became a hacker target and this step could prove to be encouraging for the company.
