8821 SafeRide Technologies Ltd and Dutch firm 8672 Irdeto have launched a solution to help original equipment manufacturers and Tier-1 suppliers protect connected and autonomous vehicles (C/AVs). Called Vsentry, the device combines network security with software security of the engine control unit to allow users to detect anomalies and respond to attacks.
Vsentry uses an artificial intelligence engine and provides multi-layer protection for securing the connectivity perimeter and the in-vehicle core layer against unauthorised operations and access attempts. Irdeto’s Cloakware for connected transport solution is intended to defend vehicles from reverse engineering, tampering and automated attacks.
Niels Haverkorn, general manager, connected transport, Irdeto, says the combined solution safeguards critical files and data and allows clients to secure vehicle software and telematics systems.
The partnership says the product also offers protection from zero-day threats that exploit an unknown computer security vulnerability.
