Karamba Security announced that it is partnering with Ficosa to harden its Telematics Control Unit (TCU) and keep vehicles protected from cyberattacks when communicating with the internet.

Karamba Security’s software prevents in-memory cyberattacks, by hardening the ECU’s according to developers’ intentions and autonomously prevents unauthorized deviations from factory settings. Karamba’s software introduces Control Flow Integrity (CFI) 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 solution, Ficosa will propose self-protected ECU’s to its OEM customers that will deterministically prevent cyberattacks, without false positive alerts or major investments in costly data analytics and security updates.
