Auto-ISAC Adds Four Additional Cybersecurity Companies
The inclusion of these four companies increases the strength of the Auto-ISAC’s position as the voice of the global auto cybersecurity information sharing community that works to prevent cyber threats to the connected vehicle.
The Auto-ISAC was formed by automakers in 2015 to promote collaboration between suppliers, commercial vehicle companies and automobile manufacturers around vehicle cybersecurity issues. Additionally, the Auto-ISAC has a strategic partner program that brings great value to our membership collaborating with innovators who support learning and sharing tools and techniques in managing the emerging complexity of automotive cybersecurity.
Jeff Massimilla of General Motors, who serves as the Auto-ISAC’s Chairman. “Collectively, these companies will contribute valuable information to drive the industry’s proactive work to incorporate strong security measures into every phase of the vehicle lifecycle.”” data-reactid=”15″>”BlackBerry, Verizon, Pen Test Partners and Regulus all play critical roles in supporting building the resiliency of our connected vehicle ecosystem, and their contribution to the Auto-ISAC is key to our industry’s success,” said Jeff Massimilla of General Motors, who serves as the Auto-ISAC’s Chairman. “Collectively, these companies will contribute valuable information to drive the industry’s proactive work to incorporate strong security measures into every phase of the vehicle lifecycle.”
The Auto-ISAC operates as a central hub to share and analyze intelligence about emerging cybersecurity risks. The focus of the Auto-ISAC is to foster global collaboration for mitigating the risks of a cyber-attack and to create a safe, efficient, secure and resilient global connected vehicle ecosystem.
A key action by the Auto-ISAC is the publishing of the automotive cybersecurity best practice guides that cover organizational and technical aspects of vehicle cybersecurity. Currently, three of the guides are available to the public: incident response, governance and collaboration and engagement with appropriate third parties. Additional guides are forthcoming: security-by-design, risk management, threat detection and protection, and training and awareness.
Regulus is focusing on GNSS (GPS) security and researches LiDAR and RADAR “signal-in-space” attacks (spoofing and jamming), a field that is very different from connected internet-based attacks. Spoofing is a smart attack on the sensor’s receivers, allowing an attacker to pose as a legitimate signal, enabling him to manipulate and deceive the target, while jamming is a denial of service attack, causing the sensor to fail in providing any inputs and rendering it useless.
Our first technology is the Pyramid GNSS (GPS). Pyramid GNSS is the first solution to detect and eliminate smart spoofing against GNSS receivers that is secure, affordable and implementable across industries. Regulus is developing a range of anti-spoofing technologies, from a fortified GNSS receiver to a software stack relevant for any GNSS receiver as a firmware update, and down to an IP core algorithm for the GNSS chip level.
