Karamba Security, a provider of embedded cyber security for connected systems, and SYSGO, a German information technologies company that supplies operating systems and services for embedded systems, have entered into a partnership to enhance embedded security within connected vehicles.
The companies are investing in a state-of-the-art security layer to enhance the resilience of next generation car architecture, leveraging Karamba’s Host IDPS, runtime software integrity for connected ECUs. Implementing Control Flow Integrity (CFI) automatically into the ECU software image increases the ECU resiliency to cyber attacks. Being self-protected, the ECU detects and prevents malicious attempts to manipulate the ECU functionality. Karamba’s technology will be tightly integrated with SYSGO’s hypervisor-based real-time operating system PikeOS, the only RTOS/hypervisor with EAL 3+ certification.
“This partnership with one of the world’s most innovative and certification experienced providers in the embedded technology is a win-win partnership for Karamba and SYSGO, said” Karamba Security’s co-founder and CEO Ami Dotan. “We expect our collaboration on Host IDPS to improve both Karamba and SYSGO’s status as leaders in embedded systems solutions for the rapidly-evolving connected car market.”
SYSGO’s VP of Marketing and Alliances Franz Walkembach said: “Embedded security within the software image is of utmost importance, especially as our connected world expands more and more into our daily lives. We are glad to work with Karamba Security as one of the industry’s leaders in embedded security on our end-to-end security solutions.”
