i couldnt be bothered reading all of that, but you can get simple coms between your car-puter and a micro controller. The micro controller can then do all sorts of funky things like switch relays, get a keypad input etc etc etc

Interesting thread. Would be nice if you could use a USB flash disk as a car key just like the BMW 1-series which uses a remote that slots in a port instead of a regular key
All this talk about USB keys.....personally I'd rather use my phone and get it's serial number over bluetooth.....Much easier and then your not trying to find stuff in your pocket.
I never go anywhere without my phone but you could always have a coded bypass thing should you get flat battery.....
Care to explain.......I don't see how.......
In theory yes, but in practise it's extremely unlikely......
I'd have thought your more likely to get mugged for the keys first...
The insurance industry tells us every chance they get the #1 security deterrent is a locked door. Lets say a wardriver does happen upon my car, he has to hack my wifi security, then hack ny network security, then hack my file security and then he can open the doors and start the car, but still not be able to drive off. Hell if I were him I'd be so frustrated in the first 10 minutes, ... I'd pick up the brick and be done with it.

I was just wondering if any of you have downloaded cliffnet wizard, to explore the possibility of this usb connection control and indication of all input/output/function of an alarm/remote start solution like the avantguard5.1. It doesn't solve this project but it may provide a good conduit for seeing something like this through.
