Honeywell and Karamba Security to jointly develop automotive cybersecurity software solutions

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 27 Dec 2017


Honeywell and Karamba Security are collaborating at the upcoming 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to showcase an end-to-end automotive cybersecurity solution for monitoring and securing vehicle communications and reducing exposure to cyber threats resulting from increasing vehicle connectivity.

Honeywell Transportation Systems (TS) and Karamba Security are focused on pairing TS intrusion detection technology software and security operations centres with Karamba Security's electronic control unit (ECU) intrusion detection software. The collaborative effort highlights the value and effectiveness of an end-to-end protection system which can be adapted to any car's ECU to help ensure passenger vehicle safety and security from detection to prevention and reporting.

The automobile industry is relying increasingly on cellular and satellite communications to increase and enhance system communications within the vehicle. Also, 40 percent of vehicles sold today are connected in some way to the Internet of Things. By the end of the decade, that number is expected to exceed 80 percent. 

The two companies are able to monitor and validate in real-time software commands and data generated by more than 100 million lines of code governing modern vehicle operation. Honeywell's intrusion detection software monitors in-vehicle network communications and anomalies, while Karamba Security's ECU software prevents an attack on any given module. Detected anomalies and prevented attacks are transmitted in either real time or via a scheduled download to Honeywell security operation centres for analysis and remediation. 

Over the years, Honeywell Transportation Systems says it has assembled a team of software experts in the evolving automotive industry trends toward increased connectivity and autonomous vehicle development.

Honeywell says it provides its customers an end-to-end software platform for enhancing cyber security of connected vehicles as well as in-vehicle monitoring to provide maintenance diagnostics and prognostics.
