SentinelOne, the autonomous cybersecurity platform company, has been announced as the official cybersecurity provider to British luxury car manufacturer, Aston Martin Lagonda, deploying the next generation endpoint protection platform to secure its manufacturing, headquarters, supply chain, and field offices against the ever evolving threat landscape.

Founded in 1913, Aston Martin has been creating exceptional automobiles built with their values of beauty, craft, and art for more than a century and has become the epitome of luxury British heritage.

Challenged by the escalating threat landscape, Aston Martin made a significant investment revolutionizing its cybersecurity program with cloud-delivered Artificial Intelligence to replace legacy antivirus. Legacy antivirus was no longer fit for purpose in protecting against modern malware and the growing prevalence of ransomware attacks. In addition, legacy antivirus required too many employees to manage while obstructing Aston Martin Lagonda’s end user computing experience. With a complex IT landscape, including Windows, Mac, Linux, and Cloud Workloads, as well as high-specification CAD, CAE, and design production workstations, Aston Martin Lagonda needed a technology solution that would seamlessly perform across different operating systems and have robust APIs for seamless integration across the tech and cybersecurity stack.

“We couldn’t have any solution that was going to get in the way of our users, particularly our engineers and designers” commented Steve O’Connor, Director of Information Technology, Aston Martin Lagonda. “We wanted a platform that was simple to use and almost invisible to the users, but that would give us complete confidence and security. Most of all, we wanted something future-proof as Aston Martin Lagonda continues constantly innovating.”

“We were impressed by how quickly SentinelOne had come to lead the enterprise security market with capabilities we didn’t see from any other vendor” continues O’Connor. After a shortlisting process, three vendors went on to proof of concept. During this process SentinelOne clearly differentiated itself, showing marked leadership against other well-established vendors. We saw unrivalled protection and very low numbers of false positives all while receiving positive responses from users across all operating systems.”

SentinelOne’s Singularity platform is a product-first approach, powered by award-winning patented AI and machine learning. The solution is able to not only prevent attacks, but also autonomously reverse any threat, freeing up technical staff and giving peace of mind that no threat slips through. Aston Martin Lagonda were able to take this peace of mind to the next level with SentinelOne’s Vigilance MDR (managed detection and response) service, delivering global 24/7/365 SOC scalability and protecting against even the most advanced threats.

“Almost immediately during the proof of concept, SentinelOne emerged as the solution for us. The rollout was even easier than we expected, despite our complex landscape. Watching the SentinelOne platform tackle threats head-on – that our existing legacy antivirus missed – was a great moment for the team.” said O’Connor.

Aston Martin Lagonda joins a raft of recent customers who have selected SentinelOne to replace legacy and next-generation antivirus. The company has seen exceptional growth in the UK and across EMEA, among others securing tens of 50,000+ endpoint enterprise wins from leading financial services, retail, manufacturing, and governments in the past few months.

To be entrusted with securing Aston Martin Lagonda’s workforce, platforms, and systems is an honor. We’re confident SentinelOne’s patented approach not only delivers unrivaled levels of protection and visibility, but also lives true to the experience we provide more than 4,000 leading enterprises worldwide. With SentinelOne behind the wheel, Aston Martin Lagonda takes its cyber defences to new levels whilst saving time and operational costs in running a global cybersecurity operation  said Nicholas Warner, Chief Operating Officer, SentinelOne.

ZF has announced that the company will be setting up a technology center for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Cybersecurity in Saarbrucken, Germany. The company is already working om the development of AI applications for systems and components as well as for making production and services safer, more intelligent and efficient.

With the establishment of the new ‘ZF AI & Cybersecurity Centre,’ ZF plans to expand its activities in the area of AI research. The new center will serve as a hub for coordinating and controlling the company’s future AI activities. Wolf-Henning Scheider, CEO, ZF Friedrichshafen, announced that as a new shareholder of the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and strategic partner of the Helmholtz Centre for Information Security (CISPA), ZF will work closely with these premier research institutions in the future. It is expected that the collaboration deal will be finalized in the second quarter of 2019 and will be subject to the approval of all current shareholders.

Commenting on the new center, Scheider said that ZF will be stepping up its group-wide expertise in AI and cybersecurity to a new level with the new Technology Center for Artificial Intelligence and Cybersecurity. The center will be close to leading research facilities in these areas and ZF will strengthen its cooperation with these institutions. ZF has plans to recruit about 100 new, highly qualified people in Saarbrucken and will be working with them to on the development of new, digitally connected and automated mobility solutions.

ZF said that about two thirds of the 100 specialists who would be based in Saarbrucken will be dealing with AI, while the remaining employees will focus on cybersecurity. The new specialists who are recruited will further supplement the 300 professionals that ZF already has across the globe, at the company’s headquarters for R&D in Friedrichshafen and at other locations in Germany and overseas.

According to ZF, all activities related to these two fields will be helmed by the joint ‘ZF AI & Cybersecurity Center’ and supplemented by the latest developments in research and development to support all of ZF divisions worldwide. The goal is to develop a common global AI platform for the optimization of existing or development of new applications, products, services and processes.

ZF is now expanding its international R&D network, which comprises both internal and external AI experts. The company is also involved in partnerships with leading companies like NVIDIA, Microsoft, Intel Mobileye and its development service provider ASAP through which also it has access to AI expertise and specialized development resources.

Prof Dr. h.c. Michael Backes, founding director of CISPA said: “In autonomous systems, the issue of security is more important than ever before, requiring world-class cybersecurity research. That’s because we need to do in-depth research on the security demands that this technology places on us in order to achieve truly trustworthy security guarantees. In the end, this is the only way we can protect the systems from attacks and tampering – and thus strengthen the business location and win people’s confidence in this technology.”

AI and cybersecurity belong together
ZF deliberately chose these two leading research institutes based on the fact that its development of AI solution, especially in relation to automated driving, will not only call for ensuring the safety of road users but will also require ensuring data privacy and IT security to the maximum possible extent. ZF’s cybersecurity experts collaborate closely with CISPA to protect new AI developments and algorithms against cyber-attacks as they become ready for volume production. This also supports, digitally, ZF’s ‘Vision Zero’ –a world with zero emissions and zero road traffic accidents.

According to the Tier 1 artificial intelligence is an essential component for automated driving functions and is indispensable on the path to autonomous driving. And in the future, the team at the new ZF location in Saarbrucken will be more than just the development force for automated driving functions. The company says they would be involved in predictive maintenance for wind power and cable car transmissions, intelligent transmission controls in passenger cars and commercial vehicles or machine learning in product development and production – ZF already uses AI-based functions in a variety of applications.

Automakers Working on Fingerprint Access to Make Vehicles More Secure https://tiresandparts.net/news/new-business-ideas/automakers-working-on-fingerprint-access-to-make-vehicles-more-secure/ https://tiresandparts.net/news/new-business-ideas/automakers-working-on-fingerprint-access-to-make-vehicles-more-secure/#respond Sun, 30 Sep 2018 11:55:52 +0000 https://tiresandparts.net/?p=24722 We all love to use our keyfobs to open our cars remotely, but security experts say such keyfobs are highly vulnerable to hacking.

We all love to use our keyfobs to open our cars remotely, but security experts say such keyfobs are highly vulnerable to hacking. It looks like car manufacturers will soon resort to using fingerprint technology to grant access to vehicles. You might soon need your fingerprints to gain access to vehicles and even to start the engine.

Godfrey Cheng, corporate vice president for Silicon Valley-based Synaptics said in an interview to Chicago Sun Times that it is quite likely for this technology to be used in cars in the next two to four years. The use of this technology is expected to transform the automotive industry as the use of car fobs now pose more of a security risk. Just as in the case of laptops and mobile phones, automotive manufacturers are likely to switch to the use of vehicle access through the use of personal identification services like retina scanning, fingerprinting and facial recognition.

For those who are currently worried about the security of their vehicle keyfobs, cybersecurity experts recommend that they get a security pouch known as a Faraday Cage whose makers claim that the puch can block all incoming signals. In a pinch, wrapping the keyfob in aluminum foil works.

Cars with keyless start need just the fob signal to unlock the doors. Hackers can use devices which can amplify the signals from unprotected keyfobs and gain access to your vehicles. They can even just copy the code and get access to your vehicle.

Currently, if you are carelessly carrying your keyfob around in your pocket or purse, hackers can capture fob signals from outside a home, office or hotel room.
This will change in the near future, when keyfobs will be paired with biometrics like facial recognition, fingerprinting and retina scanning.
Synaptics is already known for its work related to consumer technology products like smart speakers that are used in tandem with Google and Amazon’s Alexa.

Recently, Synaptics developed technology that makes it possible for motorists to adjust the heat dial on touch screens in cold conditions without removing thick gloves. Sone of the company’s major automotive clients include Audi, BMW, Ford, Honda, Porsche, Jaguar, Mercedes-Banz, Range Rover and Volkswagen.

The company has already made a prototype SUV that had been modified to permit access with just a fingerprint. Cheng took a photo of a would-be driver’s face with a computer notebook, scanned the driver’s fingerprint into the notebook and downloaded the biometric data into the SUV system. He then programmed the car to accept the driver’s fingerprint. The driver just had to press a fingerprint sensor on the dashboard to start the engine.

Using this kind of biometric program, vehicle owners can program the car to match the fingerprint — with their selected music choices, seat adjustment, navigation settings, and temperature selection. Parents can use this feature to install “geofencing” limits, to minimize any fears they have about their children who are novice drivers. Secure biometric authentication eliminates the need for drivers to remember passwords and pins.

Synaptics is not the only player in this field. Tamara Snow, director of interior systems and technology for North America within Continental said that biometric authentication could be in place with some products as soon as 2019.

Vehicles with keyless entry are particularly vulnerable to hacking. The concept of digital hacking of key fobs is one that is of great concern to motorists. Tesla has now come up with a new security feature that will make life more difficult for hackers by adding an extra layer of cybersecurity. Those who own a Tesla can take advantage of the company’s new “PIN to drive” feature for greater peace of mind regarding the security of their vehicles. This feature will make it impossible for a user to drive a Tesla model unless he enters the correct PIN (personal identification number on the infotainment screen. It is possible to activate this feature through the Controls and Safety & Security sub-menus that owners can access and create their very own PIN.

Tesla had recently upgraded the key fob cryptography for the Model S so that it is harder to hack and to match the standards for the Model X. Tesla offers an upgrade for Model S owners who have an older key fob.

Another company which has is working on a similar initiative is Volkswagen. The Group is developing its own over-the-air update system which will be available to use in future models from Volkswagen brands like Porsche, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen.

Currently, we worry about our laptops and smartphones getting hacked. With connectivity slowly gaining greater currency in the automotive sector, we now have reached a stage where cybersecurity for connected vehicles is very much a concern. Any device which is connected to the internet can be targeted by hackers. Can you imagine a scenario in which you are cruising at 110 kilometers per hour on Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road and you lose control of your brakes, thanks to the actions of some hacker thousands of miles away?

Many high-end cars have highly sophisticated electronic control units which are connected with sensors and wires and motorists using such vehicles can easily gain access to the internet using Bluetooth and wireless systems. With the advent of automated vehicles which will have components like GPS, LIDAR, radar sensors, video cameras and ultrasonic sensors, vehicles will have many more components which will be constantly communicating with their onboard computers.

In 2016, hackers demonstrated that they could hack into a Nissan Leaf from anywhere in the world using a mobile app and web browser.

Back in 2015, two security researchers hijacked a moving Jeep on a highway, sending it off the road. Their feat demonstrated that this could be easily done, and technology has only advanced since. With the Internet of Things coming to the automotive industry, hundreds of millions of vehicles are expected to be connected vehicles by 2025 and this only increases the threat to the safety and privacy of people on the road. Connectivity means that we are safer, more productive and are entertained while traveling but the other side of the coin is that the private and corporate information related to our vehicle can be stolen and individual vehicles and even entire fleets can be hijacked.

Considering the pace at which car connectivity is spreading, it is high time that the industry develops a common set of standards for ensuring that motorists are at minimal risk of attack by hackers who might steal information or take over the control of their vehicles.

By the first quarter of 2016, cars accounted for one-third of all new cellular devices. Governments and industry bodies have already recognized the need for action. OEM, Tier 1 suppliers, insurance companies, technology companies regulatory bodies and telecommunication providers are working closely together to strengthen vehicle security systems.

In July 2016, members of the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (“Auto-ISAC”) released an overview of comprehensive Automotive Cybersecurity Best Practices (“Best Practices”), which they developed as a proactive measure to ramp up vehicle cybersecurity throughout the industry.

In August 2016, the UK government issued a new set of guidelines called “The Key Principles of Vehicle Cyber Security for Connected and Automated Vehicles”.
The European Union Agency for Network and Information Security published guidelines on Cybersecurity and Resilience of Smart Cars earlier in 2017, providing good recommendations on measures that can be taken to reduce the risk for motorists. These include a focus on communication protection, access control, cryptography and user data protection.

Guidelines for connected vehicles should pertain not just to the car but should also cover each piece of software and should be followed by vehicle manufacturers, the OEMS which manufacture parts and service centers which repair the vehicles.

Manufacturers of smart vehicles or connected vehicles should release regular updates and patches as part of their after-sales service. When the registration of the vehicle is renewed every year, compliance to all such updates should also be verified

The automotive cyber security market is forecast to grow to 31.8 Million USD by 2021 and holds immense potential for the key players like Harman International, Argus Cyber Security, Karamba Security and Intel.

On the sidelines of the Detroit Motor Show, BlackBerry’s CEO, John Chen, unveiled “Jarvis”, the company’s new cybersecurity software. The software has been specially designed for the automotive sector as it has the capability to analyze the wide range of software systems that are used in connected and autonomous cars and identify potential security risks.

Jarvis promises to deliver speed and reliability when it comes to analyzing all of the complex IT systems which can be seen onboard connected and autonomous vehicles. The software was initially tested with Jaguar Land Rover, and Jarvis took only a few minutes to evaluate the security of a vehicle’s software systems. Normally, this is a task that at least 30 days. Hence, the use of this software can make a significant difference when it comes to efficiency and safety of software systems. In the event that Jarvis detects any flaws, it immediately sends an alert with an accompanying recommendation.

Jarvis quickly scans both the inputs and the outputs of a vehicle for both standard and manufacturer-defined protocols, and can automatically identifies any bugs, nonconfirming code or potential exploits. In view of the fact that future vehicles are likely to have at least half a billion lines of code, which can be provided by as many as 50 to 100 different providers, the task is complex. Even the most advanced current models have 100 to 150 million lines of code and this is set to increase in future with the emphasis on connectivity and automated driving.

BlackBerry will begin by marketing this cloud-based software to automakers. It could also be potentially used for other sectors, like the healthcare and aerospace industries.

Robert Bosch has announced that it will be rolling out a patch for its aftermarket connectivity dongle and smartphone app after a cybersecurity firm named Argus identified vulnerabilities in the authentication process between the Bosch’s Drivelog Connector dongle and its paired smatphone app. The dongle allows motorists to check vehicle diagnostics and to keep tabs on driving behavior and fuel consumption.

After identifying the weak point the experts at Argus ran a simulation which demonstrated that commands could be sent to a car through a Bluetooth connection, which could force a vehicle to stop. Argus did not try using the weak spot to get a running vehicle on a public road to stop, instead testing it on a moving vehicle in a parking lot.

Argus immediately revealed the details of the vulnerability to Bosch and Bosch quickly issued an immediate fix followed by a patch to prevent similar issues in the future.

Speaking about the issue, Argus CTO Yaron Galula said in a statement that the problem highlighted the fact that solutions based on cryptography, even when they are designed by the finest minds in the industry are foolproof. Vehicles need to be protected from hacking and cyber threats through multi-layered defenses.

Bosch commented saying that it welcomed collaboration from external security researchers, and anyone who identifies vulnerabilities is encouraged to report them to Bosch’s Product Security Incident Response Team. If any weak spots are identified internally, Bosch issues a public advisory and acknowledges the party who made the original report.

Tesla, FCA and General Motors are three automotive manufacturers who run programs which reward hackers who identify and report any weaknesses in their vehicles or websites. In 2015, automotive manufacturers and suppliers joined hands to form the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center to work on best practices for automotive cybersecurity.
