IT security flaws that enable attackers to access vehicle data and communications or even manipulate safety-relevant vehicle systems may not even be located in the vehicle itself but in the ECU production stage or in an inadequately secured backend.
With CycurHSM 2.x, automotive security provider ESCRYPT has developed a software stack that gives hardware security modules on ECU microcontrollers significantly more IT security functions than before. Enabling secure authorization procedures to be set up for automotive applications is just one feature of the new security software.
For its thought leadership in automotive security ESCRYPT has won the Cybersecurity Leader Award (CLA). The company took first prize in the “Small and Medium Enterprises” category for building up a comprehensive range of solutions and services for IT security in connected vehicles.
In V2X communication, IT security is essential for ensuring the reliable and trustworthy exchange of information between vehicles within the Cooperative Intelligent Transportation System (C-ITS).
Automotive Ethernet is increasingly becoming the communication standard for the next generation of digitally connected vehicles. Ethernet-based electrical systems allow for larger volumes of data and higher bitrates. But they also offer new attack vectors. At the same time, increasing automation of driving functions means that any security loopholes harbor even greater risks.
Automated driving systems are designed to make driving safer and more comfortable. However, the increasing connectivity of safety-relevant functions and the integration of new technologies into vehicles pose new challenges for IT security. The use of Ethernet for in-vehicle communication enables much higher payloads and transmission rates, and the integration of powerful microprocessors offers higher performance. However, both of these technologies are well-known in the traditional world of IT, with attack vectors familiar to hackers.
On May 15 and 16, STATION-Berlin will be a hotspot for everyone involved in the development of connected products and solutions on the Internet of Things. Over these two days, Bosch ConnectedWorld 2019 will offer exciting lectures, interesting exhibits about the IoT, hackathons, and opportunities to exchange ideas.
Cryptographic libraries provide the algorithms, formats, and encryption protocols for secure onboard communication among other things. Such libraries have to cater to a wide range of different use cases without placing too high a demand on the limited storage capacities or significantly reducing the network transmission rates.
ESCRYPT has been named “Innovator of the Year” for the second consecutive year by German business magazine brand eins and the Statista market research platform. The title is based on a survey of 25,000 industry and innovation experts, who in 2019 again rated ESCRYPT as one of the most innovative small and medium-size enterprises in the Technology & Telecommunications category.
ESCRYPT and Marvell®, a leader in infrastructure semiconductor solutions, are offering a joint solution to secure Ethernet-based in-vehicle communication. The Marvell 88Q5050 automotive secure switch integrates ESCRYPT‘s CycurGATE firewall and intrusion detection system to provide an enhanced level of end-to-end security to the automotive customers.
When it comes to IT security for connected and automated vehicles, weaknesses cannot be tolerated. But such weaknesses do not lurk just in the vehicle itself. Attackers could gain access to vehicle data or cryptographic keys during the manufacturing process. Or cyberattacks could spread beyond the vehicle into the associated backend systems and mobility services.
All eyes were on future mobility at the CES consumer electronics show in Las Vegas. Bosch presented its new concept shuttle featuring ESCRYPT components that provide IT security for the keyless access systems, data connectivity with the outside word, and the software updates.
Join us at Nürnberg Messe again this year for embedded world, the world’s leading embedded systems exhibition. This year, the joint ETAS/ESCRYPT booth (hall 4, booth 558) takes the form of a road intersection.
ESCRYPT invites you to attend the exclusive “Security for a globally connected vehicle” workshop as part of the embedded world 2
IT security for connected vehicles starts with the electronic control unit, or ECU. This is where the cryptographic key material must be stored to enable the secure transfer of data. ESCRYPT has developed a security solution that equips vehicle ECUs with the automaker’s OEM-specific key material during the production process.
Future Ethernet-based E/E architectures will need powerful security features. Automotive firewalls will therefore have an important role to play in monitoring and controlling in-vehicle communication networks.
The Las Vegas CES is the biggest consumer tech trade show in the world – and the next edition is set to take place from January 8 to 11, 2019. Vehicle technology and connected mobility have long been a key focus of this consumer electronics show.
Taking place in Brussels on November 13 and 14, this year’s escar Europe conference is set to attract experts from the world of automotive security. Now in its 16th year, escar represents the cutting edge of automotive cyber security. Rapidly increasing levels of digital connectivity make IT security in vehicles a key issue when it comes to future mobility.
With the digital transformation, if not before, cyber security is becoming a prerequisite for success. After all, every single loophole discredits the OEM and shakes consumer confidence in the new technologies and business models. That is why security has to be future-proof right from the start. The greater the degree to which vehicle platform systems are to be connected to the outside world, the bigger the target for attack. And the more complex the E/E architectures and the more refined the electronically controlled vehicle functions, the more complex is the risk protection solution.
Stands for ‘Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies’, CEATEC JAPAN is an IoT-oriented exhibition with a long history. It was established in 2000 through the integration of two exhibitions “Japan Electronics Show” and “COM JAPAN”, now it brings the technologies from a wide range of industries together in one venue attracting more than 150 000 visitors and 700+ exhibitors.
Global experts in Electric Mobility and Autonomous Driving will gather at eMove360° Europe 2018 (October 16 – 18, 2018, Messe Munich) to present and discuss about the next generation and sustainable mobility solutions.
Challenges in the development of autonomous driving systems – this is the main theme of this year’s ETAS Connections, which is taking place October 22–23 in Stuttgart’s Wagenhallen. In what way can autonomous driving help us turn the vision of accident-free driving into reality? What is the state of the art and where are the boundaries? For these and other questions on all aspects of highly automated vehicles, prominent international experts from industry and research will provide answers at ETAS Connections.
Effective vehicle protection begins right in the ECU. Hardware security modules (HSMs) anchor security functions directly in the ECUs’ main processors.
This year, the commercial vehicle sector is meeting in Hannover from September 20 to 27 under the banner of “Driving tomorrow.” The sector is expecting digitalization, connectivity, and autonomous driving to deliver a quantum leap in efficiency and road safety. But from truck platooning to partly autonomous connected public transportation, all of today’s possibilities and tomorrow’s opportunities rely on effective IT security.
Mobility promises us a future of connected driving: an increase in driving safety and road safety, autonomous driving, better traffic flow, less harm to the environment, and enhanced public and goods transportation. The key to making this future a reality is the cooperative intelligent transportation system (C-ITS), which enables vehicles to exchange information with other vehicles and with traffic infrastructure in real time.
How must automakers establish and coordinate a security concept that will allow them to master the future challenges of IT security? In his presentation at the 22nd Congress Automotive Electronics, Friedhelm Pickhard, CEO of ESCRYPT’s parent company ETAS provided the answer.
