Unveiled at the 21st annual ESCAR Europe, the new IDS Trusted Application successfully integrates VicOne’s award-winning xCarbon, an IDPS [intrusion detection and prevention system] for electronic control units [ECUs], together with Trustonic’s Trusted Execution Environment [TEE] to ensure robust protection for software-defined vehicles [SDVs] at all times. 

Having obtained the World’s first comprehensive EAL5+ certification for its Trusted Execution Environment [TEE] technology ‘Kinibi’, Trustonic’s secure platform is now deployed to over 2 billion smart devices and 20 million vehicles globally, with zero safety violations.

Similarly, the VicOne xCarbon™ with virtual patches and selected expert rules boasts a proven track record in helping to protect vehicles against threats from trusted credentials or exploits.

By integrating the technologies, VicOne’s xCarbon successfully monitors anomalies in ECUs, deploying virtual patches, rules, or policies to intercept potential exploits, where the Trustonic TEE provides tamper-protected storage for xCarbon’s IDPS config files, therefore assuring enhanced security for the vehicles of today and tomorrow.
