LG Electronics announced on January 31 that the company recently signed an agreement with Honeywell to jointly develop security solutions for next-generation vehicles. Vehicle security is garnering attention as core technology that directly linked to the protection of the lives of drivers and passengers in the era of autonomous driving.
The solution to be developed this time was expected to save car makers security concerns in four areas that hold the key to autonomous vehicles, LG Electronics explained.
The two companies will develop next-generation security solutions for the entire range of security for self-drive cars from the detection of and defense against hacking attempts through external networks and security threat targeting internal networks of vehicles via USB ports to security technology for various parts for electronic devices and cloud security control for real-time monitoring of security status of many vehicles and quick responses.
LG Electronics has a wealth of business experience and advanced technology in intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPSs) which detect and respond to security threats trying to infiltrate into vehicles through external networks and firewalls and security software loaded into electronic parts such as, telematics and AV navigation.
Honeywell boasts the highest level of in-vehicle security technology based on about 30 years of experience in aircraft security. The company is also running the industry's only cloud security control center.
