Panasonic Corporation and Trend Micro Incorporated have announced a partnership to achieve high security of autonomous and connected cars. The partnership will develop cyber security solution to detect and prevent cyber-attacks against autonomous and connected cars.
By developing solution to detect and prevent intrusions into Electronic Control Units (ECUs)*1 they will be able to control driving behaviour such as acceleration, steering and braking. New security vulnerabilities are discovered every day and they pose a risk for remote exploitation. These solutions will also take care of in-vehicle infotainment (IVI*2) devices including automotive navigation systems, and telematics*3 devices.
This partnership will leverage Panasonic’s Control Area Network (CAN) intrusion detection and prevention technology*4 and Trend Micro’s IoT Security. While, Panasonic will enable detection of any unauthorized commands sent to ECUs that control driving operation, Trend Micro IoT Security*5, will utilize its malware*6analysis, will be implemented on IVI devices.
Trend Micro’s IoT security solution is meat for embedded devices connecting outside the vehicle with IP communications on general purpose operating systems such as Linux. Through this partnership, events identified by both technologies will be collected and sent to an analysis platform in the cloud to detect and block suspicious traffic. Both the companies aim to launch these smart solutions for securing connected cars commercially after 2020. Read more…
