Automotive connectivity software platform meets security level EAL3+
The manufacturer of operating systems Sysgo has developed a secure software environment for use in vehicles. This Secure Automotive Connectivity Platform (SACoP) represents a fully integrated software framework for cars and is designed to meet the growing challenges of networked vehicles. At CES 2020, the company intends to present its software environment to the public

The platform guarantees information security by protecting data transfer through strict encapsulation and separation of all communication channels.  This partitioning is complemented by a secure boot process, an integrated intrusion detection system and a firewall.

The platform uses the hypervisor technology of Sysgo's real-time operating system (RTOS) PikeOS, which enables critical and non-critical infrastructures to be operated simultaneously with one system.  By using the hypervisor functionality in PikeOS to run applications in strictly separated partitions, security-critical applications in particular can run undisturbed within a specified time frame.  The platform is pre-certified according to the Common Criteria EAL3+ security standard and the ISO 26262 security standard for the automotive industry.  This is an advantage because only a single hardware system is required when planning the software architecture, which reduces development and production costs and accelerates the time to market.  The platform offers a flexible software framework that supports customers in designing their software architecture to secure communication and updates.

At CES, Sysgo will present a prototype implementation of the SACoP platform, consisting of an STM Telemaco3P processor and an R-CAR H3 board from Renesas.  The latter realizes a digital cockpit display based on Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) and an infotainment system (IVI) in the vehicle.  The Telemaco 3P processor is the connection to the outside world and functions as a secure gateway.  It is also used to supply passengers' trays and smartphones with Internet access.  The software is based on PikeOS together with ELinOS, the robust, long-term supported and automotive Linux distribution from Sysgo.
