UltraSoC announced that it has joined AESIN (the Automotive Electronics Systems Innovation Network) to further its development of secure automotive systems with embedded monitoring capabilities. Such technology helps developers to verify that their products function securely and safely in the lab, and can also be used in-life, providing ongoing monitoring while the production system is in use.
UltraSoC’s embedded analytics products use dedicated hardware to detect security problems such as hacking far more quickly and reliably than traditional software techniques. The technology is applicable to any IoT system, but the incredible complexity of automotive systems and the critical safety implications create a compelling need for such capabilities.
AESIN is a UK initiative designed to accelerate the development and delivery of electronic systems into automotive applications and infrastructure. Security is one of the Network’s key workstreams, with a specific Automotive Electronics Security group. This week (10 July 2019) sees AESIN’s Automotive Electronics Security Conference in Coventry, UK.
UltraSoC’s embedded analytics technology is already being used in automotive applications by traditional SoC companies, a major vehicle manufacturer and a tier one supplier of electronics to the automotive industry.
“We are excited to be joining AESIN and look forward to participating in the conference this week,” said Rupert Baines, CEO of UltraSoC. “AESIN and specifically the Automotive Electronics Security group are incredibly relevant to us and our customers. Enhancing security is a major focus for the industry with an ever-increasing level of connectivity and vehicle system complexity. Cross-industry participation is essential if we are to protect people against cybercrime and hacking – something UltraSoC is committed to achieving.”
For these reasons, UltraSoC’s technology and experience fits perfectly in safety-critical and security applications: providing greater insights and monitoring that allow automotive system developers to more easily satisfy the functional safety, risk assessment, testing, reporting and traceability requirements of standards such as ISO26262, IEC 61508, EN50126/8/9 and CE 402/2013, and facilitating the move to cybersecurity standards such as ISO21434 and SAE J3061.
