1. A system comprising:
an in-vehicle communication network included in a vehicle and electrically connected to a physical interface port for connecting an external device to the in-vehicle communication network, wherein the external device is adapted to physically connect to the physical interface port and to exchange data with the in-vehicle communication network, via the physical interface port; and
a security unit including a memory and a controller physically installed between the physical interface and the in-vehicle communication network and adapted, based on a security code received from the external device, to:
select at least one of: a set of components connected to the in-vehicle communication network, and a set of segments of the in-vehicle communication network; and
prevent the external device from communicating with at least one of: the selected set of components and the selected set of segments,
wherein the security code is generated based on an interaction with a user; and
wherein the security unit is adapted to validate the security code based on a unique attribute of the vehicle.
