ST and Arilou collaborate to detect automotive hacking
Semiconductor company STMicroelectronics is working with Arilou Information Security Technologies, a supplier of high-end cybersecurity solutions for the automotive industry and part of NNG Group, on the integration of Arilou’s Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) into ST’s SPC58 Chorus series of 32-bit automotive microcontrollers (MCUs).
The project aims to deliver strong security to fleet managers and consumers, seeking to produce a fully integrated solution that addresses emerging requests for protection against intrusion via communication buses in automotive body and gateway applications.
“This development work allows us to see our software solution tailored to specific devices and applications in the automotive sector,” said Ziv Levi, CEO and founder of Arilou. “As automotive cybersecurity pioneers, working on this project with ST has allowed us to be among the first to take real steps on a path leading to the fully secured vehicle.”
Advanced security solutions require a multilayer approach where both hardware and software monitor the data streams to detect communication anomalies. The security engine embedded in ST’s SPC58 Chorus series of automotive MCUs, combined with the capability of Arilou’s IDPS software to detect traffic anomalies, is set to provide a state-of-the art cybersecurity solution.
“Securing the connected car is a multilayer project and, as a leading supplier of automotive processing solutions, ST is, and must continue to be, at the centre of efforts to monitor systems, detect intrusions and protect against those intrusions,” said Luca Rodeschini, Head of Automotive Strategy and Microcontroller Business Unit, STMicroelectronics. “ST’s product, technology and market leadership requires us to work with security experts like Arilou to anticipate and meet cybersecurity challenges head on.”
