Karamba Security has announced a collaboration with Winbond Electronics Corporation to enhance embedded software security in automotive and other connected industries. OEMs and tier ones use Karamba’s embedded cyber security solutions for connected systems to protect their software and reduce vulnerability exposures.

Under the new partnership, Karamba will offer enhanced hardware security with the use of Winbond’s secure memories.

The Karamba and Winbond collaboration will provide cyber security offerings that leverage Winbond’s TrustMETM secure flash memories with Karamba’s embedded security policy. Winbond’s family of secure memories combines its world class NOR flash manufacturing process and state-of-the-art hardware security technology. The company’s offerings range from the world’s first and most secured EAL5+ Common Criteria certified flash memory device to cost effective EAL2 and Arm PSA certified memory devices.

Winbond’s secure memory with tamper resistance allows Karamba’s Runtime Integrity security to focus on performance excellence, automatically hardening the full image of the connected system and preventing modification of the factory settings.

Ami Dotan, Karamba Security’s Co-founder and CEO, said: “Teaming with a pioneer in certified secure memories enables us to improve security while maintaining the high-performance characteristics required in automotive and industrial systems.

“More than ever, autonomous vehicles, industry 4.0 controllers, and enterprise IoT edge devices need security technology that is embedded in them and which does not impact performance. Partnering with Winbond, with its certified secure memories, strengthens our commitment to offer state-of-the-art cyber security solutions and increases customer trust in our solutions.

“Karamba’s Control Flow Integrity (CFI) is becoming an industry requirement in automotive embedded systems and is expanding to other industries, making this collaboration a natural one,” said Hung-Wei Chen, Director of Winbond Secure Flash Memory Marketing.

“Security is everyone’s business, and every layer must take part in securing the overall system, so memory with built-in security is becoming indispensable. Winbond’s Common Criteria certified production site guarantees secured production, software programing, and key provisioning for connected systems. Partnering with Karamba complements our security offerings and allows us to provide comprehensive solutions to our customers.”
