C2A Security has developed an automotive security solution in collaboration with NXP, utilizing NXP Semiconductors’ CAN transceivers, which are combined with C2A’s cybersecurity software.
Experts from the two companies identified possible CANbus-related attack vectors for perimeter devices to build a new software-hardware solution. The combined solution allows OEMs to leverage both the software and hardware security capabilities of C2A and NXP to cover attack vectors that were previously difficult or impossible to address.
“C2A is looking to provide the automotive industry with comprehensive security solutions, covering all relevant attack vectors,” said Nathaniel Meron, chief product and marketing officer at C2A Security. “Our solution approach to security with NXP is vital for manufacturers to ensure their passengers’ safety.”
Timo van Roermund, head of automotive security at NXP, commented, “NXP’s secure CAN transceiver is a robust hardware complement to C2A software solutions, one that aims to deliver a powerful security solution for increasingly connected cars.”
