New OTA service integrates Software-Defined Perimeter Security with Software-Defined Car™ – Hacks are Confined to Single Car Applications Preventing Access to Entire Car
Barcelona/Mobile World Congress – February 23, 2016 – Securing the increasingly sophisticated electronics on modern autos took a giant leap forward today as Over-the-Air (OTA) software leader Movimento partnered with leading security provider Vidder, Inc., to deliver a cloud-based security solution that stops potential hacks in their tracks. Movimento will incorporate Vidder’s Software Defined Perimeter (SDP) components into its OTA platform, giving vehicles an unprecedented level of protection for both OTA updates and car-to-cloud communication. The news was released at Mobile World Congress taking place at the Fira Gran Via conference facility in Barcelona from February 22-25.
Vidder’s PrecisionAccess security platform is the first commercial solution based on the new Software-Defined Perimeter (SDP) architecture. Based on a completely new security paradigm, SDP defeats credential theft, server exploitation and connection hijacking by dynamically connecting only authenticated users to protected servers and applications. The SDP security model has been tested in public hackathons surviving billions of attacks.
Vidder’s PrecisionAccess enhances Movimento’s OTA platform, which can wirelessly complete five vehicle FOTA/SOTA or more than 20 ECU FOTA updates per minute. In this joint solution automotive supply chain partners only have access to their own data, car module or cloud app while the OEM maintains total control ensuring the car is protected. Each application or module in the car has its own unique secure network connection thus ensuring a hacker does not gain access to the whole car. Added to this, data in transit from the car to the cloud is also protected.
Modern cars with their software-based electronics and data are turning into rolling wireless networks, so the need for better security has been growing. “Car makers need to protect car data, communication to cloud services and in-vehicle ECUs security that are responsible for a car’s various functions. With this partnership, we are introducing car makers to the best-of-breed security,” said Mahbubul Alam, CTO of Movimento Group.
“We are excited to be selected by Movimento for their next generation OTA solution,” said Junaid Islam, CTO & Founder from Vidder. “Vidder’s PrecisionAccess security platform will help enable automotive OEM’s to create innovative connected car services without fear of cyber attack.”
Movimento’s OTA platform with the Vidder security technology is available immediately.
