Karamba software to be included in Ficosa telematics

BLOOMFIELD HILLS — Karamba Security, developers of security software for connected and autonomous vehicles, announced that Barcelona, Spain-based auto electronics supplier Ficosa will use Karamba’s Carwall softwrae to harden its electronic control units against cyberattacks.

Karamba Security’s software prevents in-memory cyberattacks, by hardening the ECU, and autonomously prevents unauthorized deviations from factory settings. Karamba’s software introduces Control Flow Integrity, which is automatically embedded in Ficosa’s development process, not relying on source code, with negligible runtime performance impact.

With Karamba’s Embedded Runtime Integrity software, Ficosa will propose self-protected ECU’s to its customers that will prevent cyberattacks, without false positive alerts or major investments in costly data analytics and security updates.

“We are happy to offer hardened ECU’s to our customers to prevent cyberattacks that target our products,” said Edouard Rozan, managing director at Onboard Ventures, a tech startup accelerator sponsored by Ficosa and the engineering services firm Idneo, also based in Barcelona. “As a manufacturer, we were impressed with Karamba’s prevention solution, negligible overheads and seamless integration required. Karamba’s Embedded Runtime Integrity technology is the best match, in terms of security and performance, to our needs for in-vehicle cybersecurity.”

Added Karamba CEO Ami Dotan: “This successful relationship proves that Carwall-based hardening offers superior security with negligible performance impact and ease of integration that is unique to our patented technological approach to CFI. Working with Ficosa allows Karamba to secure the automotive industry future as it evolves to smart mobility.”

Karamba also announced that it will have a display at CES 2019 in Las Vegas Jan. 8-11 in booth 929.
