IAV and Karamba Security to Demonstrate Risks to Hacked Vehicles and How to Block Them at Munich Automotive Ethernet Congress

07.02.2017  — 

BERLIN, Germany, DETROIT, NORTHVILLE, Michigan AND HOD HASHARON, Israel. IAV, a world-leading provider of automotive engineering services, and Karamba Security, a provider of autonomous cybersecurity for connected vehicles, will demonstrate the potential risks to hacked vehicles—and how to block them—at the 3rd  Automotive Ethernet Congress, Feb.7-8, 2017 in Munich. The demonstrations will take place at IAV’s booth at Hilton Munich Park Hotel, Ballroom C.

The joint IAV and Karamba demonstration addresses one of the event’s primary themes, that cybersecurity is essential to internet-connected automotive applications, especially on the way to autonomous vehicles.

IAV’s innovative Security Demonstrator uses a specially developed attack generator to target a specific connectivity function in a vehicle with a simulated attack. In the showcase, IAV presents a selection of common attack scenarios that simulate a cyberattack on the vehicle and demonstrate the potentially disastrous effects on a compromised vehicle.

The demonstration also shows how a car connected by using wireless media (Wi-Fi, LTE, Bluetooth) can be protected from hacker attacks with Karamba Security’s Autonomous Security.

Karamba’s software is uniquely positioned in that it enables electronic control units (ECUs) to autonomously protect themselves from hackers, with zero false positives. In practice, its Autonomous Security technology automatically hardens the car’s internet-connected ECUs, blocking hackers and preventing them from compromising the car.

IAV’s and Karamba’s Autonomous Security Benefits:

  • A software solution that prevents cyberattacks with zero false positives, eliminating the risk of safety impacts
  • No malware updates required
  • Automatic policy generation with zero development efforts
