Cooperation between Sysgo and Karamba Security

| Editor: Florian Richert

The operating system provider Sysgo and Karamba, provider of security software, will work together in the future. The goal is to make embedded software in vehicles safer.

Sysgo, provider of real-time operating systems for embedded applications, and Karamba Security have entered into a partnership. Both companies want to improve embedded security in networked vehicles. According to the companies, they are developing a security layer to increase the resilience of next-generation vehicle architecture.

The basis for this is Karamba's Host IDPS, which guarantees runtime software integrity for networked ECUs. Automated implementation of a so-called Control Flow Integrity (CFI) in the ECU software image increases the ECU's resistance to cyber attacks. In this way, the ECU protects itself - and recognizes and prevents attempts to maliciously manipulate the ECU's functionality. Karamba's technology is integrated into Sysgo's hypervisor-based real-time operating system "PikeOS".
