Kaspersky Lab and AVL Software and Functions to develop cybersecurity tech


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.
