Kaspersky Lab and AVL Software and Functions are to jointly develop advanced, embedded security technologies.
One of the key objectives is to create a reliable and flexible software platform that will enable car manufacturers to develop and implement a secure communication unit (SCU) into their cars, using hardware and additional software components that are aligned with their manufacturing plans. Once developed, the proof-of-concept SCU solution will be tested via security-related verification and validation methods.
The plans will also involve the following: development of a software solution, which will guarantee interference-proof secure communication between car components, the car, and its external connected infrastructure; building of a bridge between embedded automotive development and best cybersecurity practices and technologies; bundling of security products with engineered car components, and the promotion of comprehensive security solutions for the car manufacturing industry; and building a training and coaching portfolio for automotive security.
