SafeRide Technologies recently launched vXRay, a behavioral profiling and anomaly detection technology for connected vehicles’ Security Operation Centers (SOC).
vXRay can be integrated seamlessly into connected vehicles’ SOC independently of vehicle architecture or ECU sourcing. It can help customers uncover zero-day vulnerabilities, provide early detection of vehicle malfunctions and flag misuse and abuse problems.
“Vehicle data carries immense untapped value,” said Hilik Stein, CTO and co-founder of SafeRide. “Existing solutions for anomaly detection rely on in-vehicle analysis of signatures and error codes based on partial data and using limited computational power. OEMs are receiving limited and filtered information about their fleets resulting in suboptimal operational performance and exposure to zero-day cybersecurity attacks and safety risks.
“SafeRide’s technology enhances the effectiveness of the connected vehicles’ SOC by integrating the ability to analyze raw vehicle data and significantly amplify its detection power.”
vXRay uses advanced, unsupervised machine learning paradigms in a fully autonomous process to establish the normal behavior of the vehicle without dependencies or previous knowledge of ECU properties and protocols. Once the behavioral baseline is established, the machine learning models can accurately detect, categorize and flag any abnormal behavior and report it to the connected vehicles SOC for further analysis, SafeRide said.
“The security measures installed in vehicles today are critical, but they can only detect and prevent known attacks,” said Gil Reiter, SafeRide’s vice president of product management and marketing. “With ever-growing cybersecurity threats, OEMs need to assume that security breaches are inevitable and install intrusion detection capabilities that can detect unknown threats and facilitate remediation.
“Upgrading vehicle platforms with advanced intrusion detection systems can be costly and impact the vehicle release schedule, leaving fleets vulnerable. SafeRide’s vXRay technology provides OEMs with immediate cutting-edge intrusion detection capabilities with minimal or no modifications to the vehicle platform.”
