Keysight launches new security solution to defend against cyber-attacks on connected vehicles

By

Global technology services provider Keysight Technologies has announced the launch of a new cyber security offering designed to address what it says is the growing concern of cyber-attacks on connected vehicles.

According to the New York listed company the cyber world is not only enabling entertainment and comfort but increasingly impacting the safe operation of automobiles – and while this technology has unique benefits, it also “opens risks of exposure, including malicious hacker activities”.

“Early assessment, prior to production, is essential to enabling our automotive customers to deliver safe and supportable vehicles,” says Mark Pierpoint, president of Ixia Solutions Group, a Keysight business.

“Potential issues identified post production, with the risk of recalls, cost orders of magnitude more to repair than when found during pre-deployment testing, notwithstanding the possible loss of human life.

“Continued detection and mitigation of cybersecurity threats once vehicles are on the road are equally critical to keep consumers safe. Cybersecurity testing is an essential defence to ensure the design and implementation of a bullet-proof security posture in connected vehicles,” Pierpoint said.

Keysight Technologies says it understands these risks and offers solutions to “test and measure connected vehicle technologies, including the newly announced Automotive Cybersecurity Program that validates the resiliency of connected components of a vehicle, individually or as an entirely functioning automobile prior and post deployment”.

“Cars today support multiple communication methods, like Bluetooth and USB while a growing number of cars use mobile communication for a variety of services available in the car,” said Tom Goetzl, automotive & energy solutions business general manager for Keysight.

“Keysight’s Automotive Cyber security program can test for vulnerabilities on all available communication ports and provides direction to our customers on how to close such vulnerabilities.”
