Arilou Information Security Technologies and STMicroelectronics are working together on the integration of Arilou’s Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) Software solution into ST’s SPC58 Chorus series of 32-bit automotive microcontrollers (MCUs).

The project to produce a fully integrated solution that addresses the emerging request for protection against intrusion via communication buses in automotive body and gateway applications aims to deliver strong security to fleet managers and consumers.

“This development work allows us to see our software solution tailored to specific devices and applications in the automotive sector,” said Ziv Levi, CEO and Founder of Arilou.

The companies say that advanced security solutions require a multilayer approach in which both hardware and software monitor the data streams to detect communication anomalies. The combination of the security engine embedded in ST’s SPC58 Chorus series of automotive MCUs with the capability of Arilou’s IDPS software to detect traffic anomalies provides a state-of-the art cyber-security solution, according to Arilou and STMicroelectronics.

“Securing the connected car is a multilayer project and as a leading supplier of automotive processing solutions, ST is, and must continue to be, at the center of efforts to monitor systems, detect intrusions, and protect against those intrusions,” said Luca Rodeschini, Hhead of Automotive Strategy and Microcontroller Business Unit, STMicroelectronics.
