Karamba Security, a provider of automotive cybersecurity, and STMicroelectronics (ST), a global semiconductor company, are integrating Karamba’s Carwall end-to-end protection on the ST Telemaco3P STA1385 Automotive Telematics and Connectivity Processor.

Together, ST and Karamba are leveraging the security architecture of the Telemaco3P with the addition of Carwall Electronic Control Unit (ECU) hardening software.

The combined solution provides cyber security features for both contents and run-time integrity verification by detecting attempts at modifications and preventing deviations from the ECU’s intended behavior, the companies said.

Karamba Security’s deterministic approach has shown to prevent vehicle cyberattacks with zero false positives.

“STMicroelectronics is a leading provider in the connected-car ecosystem,” said Ami Dotan, Karamba Security’s co-founder and CEO. “We are pleased to collaborate to protect automotive systems based on ST’s Telemaco3P microprocessor by automatically hardening them against cyberattacks to assure consumer safety.”

“Karamba Security’s differentiated cyber-prevention solutions have generated significant market traction in a very short time and are a strong fit to enhance the security and value of ST’s Telemaco3P architectures,” said Antonio Radaelli, director of STMicroelectronics’ Infotainment, Automotive Digital Division. “Karamba’s Carwall adds another layer of security to the Telemaco3P benefits, which include its state-of-the-art power-efficient design, fast connectivity interfaces, domain isolation, and embedded Hardware Security Module. The combination provides customers with even stronger cybersecurity protection for in-vehicle systems.”
