On the one hand, connectivity functions allow manufacturers to monitor the vehicles’ state and install security updates when necessary. On the other hand, the growing number of communication channels increases the potential of gateways for hackers. To create a secure vehicle, you must consider all the connected elements and take a holistic approach.
From the single ECU to the cloud
Defense in depth: Our concept covers all the layers affected inside and outside the vehicle environment: individual components and ECUs, bus systems inside the vehicle, external interfaces and protocols (including WLAN, for example) as well as end-to-end encryption and protection of all relevant services. This not only ensures system integrity and prevents attempted misuse, but also meets the ever-increasing legal requirements for data privacy, data protection, and information security.
From embedded to automotive cybersecurity
Elektrobit’s offering enables end-to-end security for connected vehicles. Our automotive cybersecurity solution consists of efficient embedded cryptography architectures based on AUTOSAR, and customer-specific requirements. The security mechanisms are designed for secure communication, authenticated identification, theft protection, anomaly detection, intrusion detection, and all types of cryptographic calculations, secure updates, and secure diagnostics. Our platform-independent, modular offering lets our customers also pick and choose separate products and solutions.
Complementary offering by Argus
In the area of security, Elektrobit partners with ARGUS to prevent cyberattacks in vehicles.
By joining forces, we make it easier for car manufacturers to take a proactive approach to automotive cybersecurity.
