Demonstrations also reflect recent partnership between ETAS and Lynx
Secure autonomous and connected vehicles will be the focus for Lynx Software Technologies at the 5th escar USA in Detroit, Michigan. In March, Lynx announced a collaboration with ETAS and ESCRYPT to help secure autonomous and connected vehicles, and a demonstration of that combined technology will be on show at escar this week.
Lynx will use the event to show how the highly efficient LynxSecure Application (LSA) bare metal virtual machine technology is used to integrate the classic AUTOSAR environment provided by the ETAS RTA-BSW. This demo illustrates how existing AUTOSAR software can be integrated into a powerful DC/VC ECU, while providing the necessary safety, security, and freedom from interference that the most demanding applications require. It can be seen how the software continues to function flawlessly, even when other virtual machine partitions are restarted.
The LynxSecure Application virtual machine containers will also be used to host the critical security components in strongly isolated partitions. This will allow security services such as intrusion detection, firewalls, key management, etc. to be separated from the rest of the system while providing a smaller trusted code-base footprint which is the foundation for ensuring the highest levels of safety and security.
