Argus ECU Protection

Built for the automotive industry, Argus Connected ECU Protection prevents, detects, and mitigates attacks targeting connected ECUs. Six easy to deploy independent modules work individually, or together, to protect the car’s most vulnerable attack surfaces, such as in-vehicle infotainment units (IVIs), telematics units (TCUs), smart instrument clusters, and ADAS units.

Key Benefits


Prevents attacks in real-time without connectivity to the outside world or human intervention


Provides multiple independent protection layers, to defend against all types of attacks

Modular & Scalable

Adapts to almost any cybersecurity strategy with a modular and scalable architecture


Aligns with latest automotive standards and regulations (e.g. WP.29) and addresses unique automotive security challenges

Connected ECU Protection – Product Modules

Argus Connected ECU Protection

Control Flow Integrity (CFI)

Prevents exploitation of vulnerabilities, by ensuring that the ECU program does
not deviate from its expected execution flow.

System Limiter

Mandatory-access control that utilizes automotive-specific techniques and designs to protect system data and code on the ECU.

Platform Integrity

Protects automotive environments by preventing execution and usage of unverified code and data on the ECU at boot and during runtime.

Security Logger

Logs and securely stores data to support the detection of cyber-attacks and provide data forensic capabilities for future analysis.

Threat Detection

Detects and responds to unforeseen cyber threats and attacks by monitoring the ECU and indicating suspicious behavior.

ECU Firewall

Prevents attacks from spreading to the in-vehicle network by blocking malicious communications using Deep Packet Inspection.

Key Features

Supports Linux, Android and QNX operating systems

Saves time with seamless Integration and easy configuration

Designed for easy reuse across ECUs

Consumes minimal system resources

Supports future module activation

Evaluation Kit

To enable a fast, effective product evaluation and provide hands-on experience with Argus Connected ECU Protection, Argus offers an evaluation kit based on a Raspberry Pi SBC:

Functional Evaluation

Evaluate Argus Connected ECU Protection features and capabilities across multiple use-cases (example: attempt to execute unsigned binary)

Performance Evaluation

Validate that Argus Connected ECU Protection has negligible/zero impact on its host and monitored processes (example: execution time of a single application)
