Security Architecture

Identify risks before adversaries, implement cost-effective security mechanisms, and deliver on cyber security expectations of regulators and consumers:

Threat Analysis & Risk Assessment (TARA) & Security Concept

Argus research team identifies, assesses, and categorizes risks for vehicle architectures, networks, and components, and recommends effective mitigation strategies according to industry standards.

Requirements Specification

Based on the conclusions of the TARA, Argus’ research team drafts a set of cyber security requirements that addresses all security aspects of the vehicle component or system.

Security Technology Consulting

Argus experts provide strategic consulting regarding cyber security technologies that can support compliance with the relevant industry standards

Security Testing

Test the vehicle and its components to confirm that the defined security requirements have been met and reduce exposure to cyber threats before production:

Security Code Review

Discover security related issues such as logical vulnerabilities caused by poor design and implementation vulnerabilities due to bugs or incorrect implementation, e.g stack / heap overflows.

Penetration Testing

Using black, grey, and white box methodologies, Argus white hat hackers identify vulnerabilities and potential attack scenarios targeting vehicle fleets and components, such as infotainment centers, telematics units and in-vehicle networks.

Fuzz Testing

Argus’ award-winning fuzz testing technology enables coverage-guided fuzz testing for embedded devices (ECUs). Our Fuzzing for Interfaces tool identifies vulnerabilities in a vehicle component and supports Ethernet, Automotive Ethernet, CAN, WiFI, V2G, FlexRay, and LIN protocols.
