NanoLock Security and Cypress Semiconductor announced the companies are jointly developing flash-based solutions that bring device-level security and management to the automotive and industrial domains. The combination of NanoLock’s security and Cypress’ Semper NOR Flash devices enables a trusted management platform and secure over-the-air (OTA) updates for autonomous and connected vehicle electronics units, as well as for smart factories and other Industry 4.0 applications.

This is achieved by leveraging the unique compute capabilities of the Semper NOR Flash to create a secured channel, flash to cloud, to protect against overwriting, modification, manipulation, erasure and ransomware attacks on firmware, boot images and system parameters.

Cypress and NanoLock will jointly demonstrate the solution protecting industrial automation equipment and automotive ECUs from a cyberattack at the Embedded World 2019 trade show in Nuremberg, Germany.
