NanoLock and Cypress to Develop Flash-to-Cloud Management and Security for Automotive and Industrial Applications

and Cypress
Semiconductor Corp.
) today announced the companies are jointly developing flash-based
solutions that bring device-level security and management to the
automotive and industrial domains. The combination of NanoLock’s
security and Cypress’ Semper™ NOR Flash devices enables a trusted
management platform and secure over-the-air (OTA) updates for autonomous
and connected vehicle electronics units, as well as for smart factories
and other Industry 4.0 applications. This is achieved by leveraging the
unique compute capabilities of the Semper NOR Flash to create a secured
channel, flash to cloud, to protect against overwriting, modification,
manipulation, erasure and ransomware attacks on firmware, boot images
and system parameters.

Cypress and NanoLock will jointly demonstrate the solution protecting
industrial automation equipment and automotive ECUs from a cyberattack
at the Embedded World 2019 trade show in Nuremberg, Germany in Cypress’
stand (#148 in hall 4A) of the Nuremberg Exhibition Center from February
26-28, 2019.

“With the autonomous and connected revolution underway in the automotive
and industrial markets, vehicles and equipment contain more
sophisticated electronic devices that require security and management of
the software running on those devices,” said Sandeep Krishnegowda,
Director of Marketing and Applications in the Flash Business Unit at
Cypress. “Adding NanoLock’s security and management technology to our
Semper devices enables Cypress to provide the required level of
protection for our automotive and industrial customers whose end-users’
safety relies on fail-safe storage and security.”

“Our joint development with Cypress continues our efforts to tackle the
IoT domain’s vulnerabilities and the automotive and ICS industries are a
major part of it,” said Yoni Kahana, VP Customers, NanoLock. “Our joint
solution presents a flash-to-cloud approach to automotive security and
management by ensuring that vast devices are protected and managed
during the whole device lifecycle, from manufacturing and operations to
updates and through end of life, from the flash layer to the cloud
controlling these devices.”
