Interview with Kirill Levchenko
As I read the Triton paper in the CSET '19 workshop, I found myself wanting to talk to some of the folks who had been working on this project. The recent software and documentation issues with Boeing's 737 Max that have led to the deaths of over 300 people provided some additional impetus. Karl Koscher, a member of the project, had written for ;login: before about the automotive CAN bus, so I asked him for recommendations about who he thought I should talk to.
Karl suggested Kirill Levchenko. I don’t recall ever meeting Kirill, but I'd certainly heard of him through various papers published by a large group of primarily West Coast researchers related to tracking Internet crime, work on hacking cars, and other topics.
As we worked on the interview, Kirill reminded me that the Triton Project was a collaboration of many people, something you can see right away by looking at the CSET paper. Still, I found myself wanting to talk to Kirill, as I knew little about him beyond his published works.
