ELIoT Pro demonstrates its potential for the automotive industry after reaching significant milestone

Press release

Katowice, February 4th, 2020

Cyberus Labs has completed another deliverable due as part of the EU’s SME Instrument /Horizon 2020 programme, which demonstrates its potential for the automotive industry.

The aims of the most recent Deliverables were the implementation of the ELIoT Pro user authentication for secure car access technology and securing the car’s own VPN network.

Within the most recent development phase, we have optimized ELIoT Pro user secure authentication based on Cyberus Key technology to the connected car. Based on ELIoT Pro’s mobile app, it delivers ultra-secure active and passive keyless car access.

ELIoT Pro was designed to serve various different industries. It has proven its use in Smart Building by integration with the Building Management System NAZCA by APA Group we have showcased in October 2019 in ‘Black House’ in Gliwice, Poland.

The aim of this part of the project, successfully achieved, was to provide automotive sector with the solution that will be resistant to relay and SARA attacks. It also provides easy to use and secure integrated user authentication solution also to login to smart car’s internal dashboard and VPN system.

With ELIoT Pro’s latest delivery, now connected cars can also be protected!

We have provided two previously implemented ELIoT Pro layers of Human to Machine (H2M) and Machine to Machine (M2M) security supported with our Lightweight Encryption (LE) also for use in the automotive industry. We have demonstrated that ELIoT Pro can bring security also to this very demanding and security conscious industry that is still struggling with massive car theft problem.

The comprehensive, mutually reinforcing mechanism of ELIoT Pro was built to eliminate the “weakest link” vulnerability present in all IoT systems, by fortifying each of the possible “weak links” in an integrated security wall protecting IoT systems.

But there is much more this time:

  • ELIoT Pro system renders Cloning Attack useless thanks to our Lightweight Encryption methodology implemented  for  user to car (H2M) communication.
  • Signal Relay Attack (SRA) are also not possible thanks to use developed and adapted functionalities of our Lightweight Encryption  so consequently the system can detect the attack and ignore it.
  • Thanks to its developed and adjusted functionalities, it also makes Signal Amplification Relay Attack (SARA) impossible.
  • This milestone also proves ELIoT Pro’s universality and ease of use and implementation with API, SDK functionality. A white-label option is also available.

“The technology platform developed in the most recent development phase allows a cell phone equipped with a mobile app to operate as a mobile key fob for the purpose of demonstrating secure car door operations” said Jack Wolosewicz, Cyberus Labs Co-founder, Chief Executive Officer & Chief Technology Officer. 

“All data transmissions are encrypted by the LE algorithm to provide security of the communication and makes it impossible to use recorded transmissions as an attack vector. The automotive door lock/unlock operations demonstrate the ELIoT Pro as a solution to all known automotive door hacks. This technology platform provides auto manufacturers and subcontractors with long searched solutions to the security issues which have been plaguing the connected car industry. We are grateful to the European Commission for enabling us to provide such a solution, and for making the creation of this one of a kind system possible through the SME Instrument/ Horizon 2020 program”, he added.
