Rohde & Schwarz: dedicated security solutions for IoT automotive telematics
Building a secure automotive telematics platform to achieve a profitable business model for automakers and ecosystem partners is a challenging task for mobile network operators. As the platforms lack detailed security specifications and a standardized framework, they become an attractive target for cybercriminals. Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity now offers solutions that enable operators to build a second line of defense to protect platforms and vehicles. The security solutions will be presented at this year’s Mobile World Congress.
Automotive telematics security solutions by Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity now enable mobile network operators to establish a second line of defense, addressing the security needs of carriers in a cost-effective way. The solution portfolio includes:
• The deep packet inspection engine R&S PACE 2, which can be implemented as a state-of-the-art security function into IoT telematics platforms. R&S PACE 2 provides protocol and application classification in order to extract a variety of metadata from IP based traffic.
• The next-generation firewall R&S Specialized Line that is powered by R&S PACE 2 and enables telematics platform operators to define policies based on communication primitives such as the types of OTA functions (e.g. deactivation of GPS tracking to support car theft). The firewall can be smoothly integrated into mobile networks via its routing functionalities and the easy and fast integration of special or proprietary protocols.
The Rohde & Schwarz Cybersecurity deep packet inspection technology makes it possible to implement semantic awareness into core network components such as firewalls, gateways and IoT platforms. This enables operators to provide a secure and reliable platform in order to leverage the full potential of automotive telematics.
