Airbiquity has announced that it will demonstrate OTAmatic over-the-air (OTA) software update and data management offering for connected vehicles featuring Uptane Security Framework, at escar Europe.
OTAmatic reliably and securely orchestrates and automates vehicle software updates and data management from the cloud, utilizing Uptane along with security signing management tools and processes to guarantee authenticity and integrity of software updates transmitted and installed in the vehicle.
Uptane provides the foundation for Airbiquity OTAmatic’s defense-in-depth security approach for automotive OTA leveraging automotive grade standards-based certification, authentication, and encryption technologies and processes.
Uptane’s open standard automotive software update security framework was developed with support from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, New York University (NYU) Tandon School of Engineering, University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI), Southwest Research Institute (SWRI), and leading automakers and suppliers.
The company will also demonstrate OTAmatic data management and edge analytics module integration with the SafeRide vSentry Multi-Layer Cybersecurity Solution to deliver an end-to-end and future-proof cybersecurity system for connected and autonomous vehicles.
SafeRide vSentry provides deterministic and heuristic cyberthreat protection using AI Machine Learning and Deep Learning technology that reliably monitors vehicle security in real-time and uncovers vulnerabilities. When the vSentry anomaly detection module running in OTAmatic’s Data Agent detects a vehicle cyberattack exploiting a new vulnerability the system sends an alert to Airbiquity’s OTAmatic service which then transmits and installs the appropriate vehicle software update to remedy the vulnerability and restore protection of the vehicle asset and occupants.
