Lynx: secure separation solutions for connected cars at TU-Automotive Europe
Lynx Software Technologies will be presenting its software based solutions for securing the connected vehicle as a Co-Sponsor at TU Automotive Europe, 2-3 November in Munich.
The LynxSecure Separation Kernel Hypervisor software platform supports the next generation of vehicle electronic architectures and applications including Connected and Autonomous Driving, ADAS and IVI. The core of LynxSecure is a military-grade high assurance separation kernel that hosts isolated domains, each containing a separate virtualization stack to allow operating systems and applications to run in their own secure environments on a single hardware platform. LynxSecure supports an extensive range of environments, including non-real-time OSes (such as Android and Linux), proprietary RTOSes, AUTOSAR kernels, and bare-metal applications. LynxSecure enforces safe and secure separation of mixed criticality applications and components and is suitable for hosting safety critical applications up to ISO 26262 ASIL D. With a tiny trusted code-base, LynxSecure provides automotive systems with the protection they need by reducing the attack surface exploitable by malicious agents to an absolute minimum.
LSA.connect is a secure network encryption component built using bare-metal LynxSecure Applications (LSAs). In its simplest configuration, LSA.connect can be used to encrypt network traffic without exposing a large attack surface to malicious agents by housing the network encryption algorithms in their own secure domain, away from both the operating system connected to the internet and the encryption keys themselves. LSA.connect is also able to support multiple isolated communication domains by implementing dedicated secure encryption tunnels over a single physical network connection.
