As vehicle connectivity increases, new gateways are opening up for hacker attacks. Preventing such attacks, or at least detecting them in time to initiate countermeasures, is imperative for the effective protection of today’s vehicles.
With its CycurIDS intrusion detection system, ESCRYPT is offering a solution that is tailored-made for vehicle electronics and connectivity.
CycurIDS is an embedded security component that detects anomalies and typical intrusion signatures, such as cyclical messages and the abuse of diagnostic requirements.
The calibration of CycurIDS is based on manufacturer-specific configuration data (DBC/ARXML) for vehicle CAN networks. This configuration is optimized and validated by running a simulation based on the recorded network traffic and through automated analysis of detection and error rates. The result is a high detection rate coupled with a low number of false alarms.
