Fleet Live: Cybersecurity for connected vehicles

Fleet Management Live 2017 hall shot

Vital security technology for new mobility solutions will be showcased at Fleet Live, the UK’s premier exhibition and conference for the fleet management community.

First time exhibitor, Irdeto, will be showcasing its Cloakware for Connected Transport solutions, which provide software protection for keyless entry to today’s vehicles, and cybersecurity defences for tomorrow’s autonomous vehicles.

Keystone, for example, is a secure vehicle access and safety solution.

Irdeto will also be demonstrating its cybersecurity solution for connected and autonomous vehicles.

The technology combines network security with software security on a vehicle’s ECU, allowing manufacturers and their tier-1 suppliers to detect tampering and anomalies in order to protect against and respond to cyberthreats.

Niels Haverkorn, general manager, connected transport, Irdeto, said: “The more fleet and heavy vehicle operators rely on connectivity, the more vulnerable they become to cyber attacks, and this makes the fleet sector a key audience for Irdeto as we work with partners and customers to protect the industry against cybersecurity threats.

“This increasing connectivity makes it imperative to inherently protect the software that runs in vehicle fleets, not just the perimeter, and cybersecurity must be top-of-mind to ensure that drivers, vehicles and systems are safe from cyber attacks.”

Fleet Live is free to attend and takes places at the NEC Birmingham on  9-10 October 2018. For more details, see www.fleet-live.co.uk.
