[Ovmsdev] A Car Hacking Experiment: When Connectivity Meets Vulnerability

No real suprises in there, but it's cool to see there is professional
work towards OVMS and the Twizy. However I have two questions regarding
- When they describe brute forcing the sevcon access level protections,
is this the new protection in Twizy's >2016? Does this mean using this
one could tune the newer Twizy models?
- in Chapter V section B under "Throttle Control" they describe
reconfiguring the pedal behaviour. Could this be used whilst driving to
implement cruise control into the T?
