First automotive grade end-to-end intrusion detection solution launched for connected vehicles

NXP-Connected Car

HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated, the connected technologies company for automotive, consumer and enterprise markets, and Airbiquity®, a global provider in connected vehicle services, has announced the first automotive grade end-to-end intrusion detection system (IDS) for connected vehicles at TU-Automotive Europe 2016 in Munich, Germany.

With the increasing dependency on software to power vehicle systems and features, cybersecurity has become a threat to connected vehicles and the introduction of new driving assistance, vehicle-to-vehicle communication, and autonomous driving capabilities.

By combining HARMAN’s Intrusion Detection and Prevention System inside the vehicle with Airbiquity’s cloud-based Choreo™ service delivery platform and Software & Data Management solution, the two companies now deliver the most robust connected vehicle security threat detection and response capability for automotive customers and their consumers alike.car logo combo2

HARMAN’s embedded ECUSHIELD software—which provides continuous security threat monitoring and identification for internal vehicle networks—detects and logs security intrusions locally. Once logged, Airbiquity’s Choreo platform and Software & Data Management solution collects the ECUSHIELD intrusion information from the vehicle, aggregates it in the cloud, and automates alerts and reports so automotive customers can quickly assess and execute security-centric actions—including the secure transmission and installation of vehicle software updates from the cloud to mitigate future threats and restore impacted systems and components.

“Car hacking is a very real threat that will continue to increase as we move towards greater connectivity and autonomous vehicles, with more and more new technologies becoming part of the Internet of Things,” said Saar Dickman, vice president, Automotive Cyber Security at HARMAN.

“Following years of research in developing ECUSHIELD, we’re delighted to be working with Airbiquity, a likeminded partner, to offer the industry the first end-to-end IDS solution that combines our company’s embedded capabilities with Airbiquity’s comprehensive back-end software and data management solution. Our mutual goal is to help our customers in ensuring vehicles are safe and secure.”

“Integrating HARMAN’s ECUSHIELD technology with Airbiquity’s Software & Data Management offering further strengthens our ability to deliver advanced, reliable, and secure end-to-end connected vehicle services to our automotive customers,” said Kamyar Moinzadeh, president and CEO of Airbiquity. “Given the high priority of vehicle security we believe threat detection must be a mandatory component of any connected vehicle solution, and Airbiquity is delighted to partner with HARMAN to jointly leverage our technology assets and meet this critical need.”vehicle_security_transparent car 2

Demonstrations of the HARMAN-Airbiquity IDS solution will be showcased during TU-Automotive 2016 at HARMAN’s floor exhibit (booth #28) and Airbiquity’s on-site meeting room. Contact HARMAN or Airbiquity for additional information or to arrange a demonstration.

Dvir Reznik, HARMAN senior marketing manager Automotive Cyber Security, and Scott Frank, Airbiquity vice president of Marketing, will participate in an OTA software update panel discussion on the first day of the event, 11/2, from 5:15-5:45P CET.
