HDBaseT Automotive is poised to become the first industry standard with built-in cyber security for in-vehicle connectivity. The cross-industry group tasked with promoting and advancing HDBaseT technology, is announcing the establishment of a Cyber Security Working Group, with the participation of Check Point, Argus and Valens. The Working Group will define the necessary specifications for a more secure connected car.
Check Point Software Technologies has joined the Alliance as a Contributor member, and will lead the Cyber Security Working Group. Argus Cyber Security is also joining the Alliance as a Contributor member of the Cyber Security Working Group. Valens, inventor of HDBaseT and HDBaseT Alliance founder, will play a central role in this collaboration to accelerate development of these requirements.
As an established infrastructure technology, HDBaseT brings embedded connectivity protocols to handle cyber security risks. HDBaseT Automotive is the only technology that enables high-speed tunneling of audio, video, data, USB and more, with native networking capabilities over a single unshielded twisted-pair (UTP) cable for up to 15m (50ft).
The Cyber Security Working Group will work closely together with the Alliance Automotive Working Group. Members of the Alliance’s Automotive Working Group are leading automotive OEMs, Tier-1s and suppliers, including General Motors, Daimler, Delphi, Mitsubishi Electric, LG, Samsung, Silora R&D, Leoni, TE, NXP, Molex and Valens.
