Argus Cyber Security and STMicroelectronics have cooperated to ensure the cybersecurity of connected automotive technologies. They have integrated Argus Connectivity Protection with ST’s Telemaco3P automotive microprocessor to detect and block attacks on vehicle telematics units in real-time and prevent them from proliferating to the in-vehicle network. Besides, situational awareness of the cyber health of fleets on the road, insights into emerging threats through big data analytics, and the ability to mitigate new threats through security updates over-the-air and enhance the secure deployment of remote services (applications, SW updates) are provided.
“Telematics applications make cars potentially vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Consumer safety, along with impending government regulations and heightened demand for secure vehicle connectivity, makes it more crucial than ever to protect vulnerable entry points into the vehicle. Our multi-layered approach, based on the technology of 39 granted and pending patents, does just that. Together with ST, we are helping to ensure that drivers enjoy the high-value services and rich connected driving experience made possible by the Telemaco3P processor while remaining safe and protected against cyber threats,” said Yoni Heilbronn, Chief Marketing Officer of Argus Cyber Security.
The Telemaco3P solution with Argus Connectivity and Lifespan Protection and its cross-platform operating system capabilities (compatible with Linux, QNX, Android and more) were on display during CES 2018.
“The Telemaco3P secure microprocessor is at the centre of ST’s commitment to Safer, Greener, and More Connected vehicles with its state-of-the-art power-efficient design, fast connectivity interfaces, domain isolation, and embedded Hardware Security Module. With multiple layers of software security added by Argus on top of the cryptographic and key-generation accelerators designed into the Telemaco3P, this integration of hardware and software features delivers safety to passengers and data privacy of connected cars,” said Antonio Radaelli, Director Infotainment, Automotive Digital Division, STMicroelectronics.
