Increasing connectivity and automation of vehicles in combination with new regulations and standards like UN Regulation 155 and ISO/SAE 21434 will require OEMs to monitor incidents and risks of their vehicle fleets over the entire life cycle. ESCRYPT develops and operates a Intrusion Detection and Prevention Solution (IDPS) for connected fleets that enables manufacturers and fleet operators to establish a life cycle of continuous security improvements. This holistic solution ensures permanent monitoring of vehicle fleets to identify rising security threats, establish dedicated incident response, and keep the security level stable over the entire life cycle.
The threat landscape is constantly changing as increasing vehicle’s connectivity opens up new attack vectors. Attackers are also continuously perfecting their methods to undermine existing protection mechanisms and find loopholes. That’s why it’s not enough to guarantee state-of-the-art security at the point at which the vehicle rolls off the production line. Instead, security has to extend to protect against attacks during the vehicle’s entire operating life. Therefore, a solution is required to reliably detect and analyze security threats so that suitable countermeasures can be taken immediately and effectively – for the vehicle in question and, if necessary, for the entire fleet.
