Good question. As far as I remember, the PEAK Windows driver and the
PEAK Linux char driver shares the same API and as such Defensics
supports both through a python middleware (the injector). This is only
true for Classical CAN. For CAN-FD, only Windows driver are officially
supported but hacking Defensics's injector code to have it run on
Linux is easily done (but that not the topic so let me end the
digression here).

I also worked on CAN IDS. I was Japan regional FAE for the CycurIDS
product of Escrypt. Speaking of that, I believe you probably know Jan

Absolutely yes. In my first message, I mentioned the idea of managing
that through socket option, glad that we now share the same idea.

An other option I thought about would be to use one of the reserved
field of the struct can_frame but I am not fan of that second idea.

Do you want me to come back with an RFC patch? I already started to
thing about that months ago and did some testing. I identified the
code portion which have to be modified.

The only thing is that it will take me some time to draft a nice
proposal. Currently, I have another patch under review for a CAN
driver (, I want to finalize this
one first, and can get back to you after that. So that will mean that
we will be targeting Linux 5.11 end of this year, I do not think we
can squeeze that change in 5.10 merging windows.

Have a nice one! That might have been a shock for you :-)
