What is Local Interconnect Network (LIN)

Decision Support Systems and Industrial IoT in Smart Grid, Factories, and Cities
A networking technology used for in-vehicle communication. Compared to other technologies, LIN is relatively cheap and is mostly used in less time-crucial parts in the network of a vehicle.

Abstract
The automotive industry has seen remarkable growth in the use of network and communication technology. These technologies can be vulnerable to attacks. Several examples of confirmed attacks have been documented in academic studies, and many vehicular communications systems have been designed without security aspects in mind. Furthermore, all the security implications mentioned here would affect the functionality of decision support systems (DSS) of IoT and vehicular networks. This chapter focuses on in-vehicle security and aims to categorize some attacks in this field according to the exploited vulnerability by showing common patterns. The conclusion suggests that an ethernet-based architecture could be a good architecture for future vehicular systems; it enables them to meet future security needs while still allowing network communication with outside systems.
