Del

ANN ARBOR, Mich. and HOD HASHARON, Israel and VERSAILLES, France, June 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VEDECOM Tech, the European self-driving car company, has chosen Karamba Security, a provider of autonomous cybersecurity solutions for connected and autonomous vehicles, to protect its autonomous vehicles from cyberattacks.

VEDECOM Tech is a commercial subsidiary of VEDECOM Public Foundation, an organization dedicated to fostering innovation in autonomous transportation, and whose members include Renault, Peugeot and Valeo.

VEDECOM Tech is introducing completely autonomous, self-driving vehicles (SAE Level 5) that will be launched for commercial use in 2017 and 2018 by municipalities in France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and the Netherlands. The company is using Karamba's Carwall and Autonomous Security software to protect the cars' electronic control units (ECUs) against risks of hacking.

This marks the industry's first production of cyberattack-secured, commercially-available automobiles.

"As we bring our first self-driving cars into production, we planned for cybersecurity technology to be part of the car's design. We evaluated the market extensively, and after serious consideration, concluded that Karamba Security's technology is the best way to prevent, not just detect, cyberthreats and keep passengers and cars safe," said Frederic Mathis, CEO and president of VEDECOM Tech.  "Karamba's Autonomous Security achieves that by autonomously hardening ECUs and preventing hacker infiltration with zero false positives. This approach uniquely prevents cyberattacks, and at the same time, satisfies the industry's intolerance to consumer safety risks, resulting from false alarms (aka 'false positives') that mistakenly block legitimate vehicle commands."

"We are excited to be the first cybersecurity company to have its technology adopted in commercially available cars," said Ami Dotan, Karamba Security CEO and co-founder. "VEDECOM Tech is a formidable partner, which has been successfully implementing state-of-the-art technologies that enable self-driving cars to become a reality. Protecting these autonomous and connected vehicles from cyberattacks is VEDECOM Tech's priority, and we are proud to enable this cyber protection."

VEDECOM is using YoGoKo's advanced communications solutions for its connected and cooperative autonomous vehicle. YoGoKo solutions enable vehicles to maintain internet connectivity and exchange data with other vehicles, road and urban infrastructure and cloud apps in a standardized way (ISO, CEN, ETSI standards), combining a diversity of access technologies (urban Wi-Fi, ITS-G5, cellular, LoRa, etc.).

By using state-of-the-art software and hardware security features to design its solutions, YoGoKo helps leverage risks and attacks coming from communication channels. YoGoKo brings a high level of trust to vehicular communications.

Moreover, communications security must be complemented with system-level security.  YoGoKo and Karamba work together to harden YoGoKo's externally-connected ECUs and safeguard the vehicles' advanced, connected communications systems against cyberattacks. This software security blocks malware and enforces authentication to provide trust in using self-driving capabilities and enforcing authorization policies that ensure data privacy.

VEDECOM Tech will provide a fleet of autonomous vehicles for the Autopilot Project. 
Autopilot Project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 731993.

VEDECOM Tech, YoGoKo and Karamba Security will showcase their partnership to protect VEDECOM's self-driving cars at booth number A10 during the 12th ITS European Congress, June 19 - 22, 2017 at the Strasbourg Convention Centre.

Carwall and Autonomous Security
Communications between vehicles and surrounding infrastructure certainly have the potential to improve driving safety and traffic management. These transmissions need to be highly secured, however, because malicious actors may target this intelligence to interfere with the car's critical components. A car's electronics system also needs protection because hackers may tamper with that as well.

Attackers try to inject malicious messages designed to modify a vehicle's behavior, either by a local or remote attack.

Karamba Security has responded to the challenges with Carwall and Autonomous Security, an approach that hardens the car's ECUs against hackers trying to take control of its safety systems, such as brakes and steering, for malicious purposes. Karamba safeguards the vehicle's electronics and entire system from being hacked by threat actors, and offers these advantages:

  • A software solution that prevents cyberattacks with zero false positives, eliminating the risk of safety impacts
  • No malware updates required
  • Automatic policy generation with zero development efforts

Just last week, Karamba Security was awarded Best Auto Cybersecurity Product/Service of 2017 by TU-Automotive at its Detroit Conference and Exhibition. Karamba was selected in a unanimous decision by TU-chosen expert judges based on: Innovation, Industry Engagement, User Experience and Market Update.

Novel Preclinical Research Tools Provide Humanized Immune Response to Advance Immunotherapeutic Development, Live Webinar Hosted by Crown Bioscience19.10.2017 14:00Pressemelding

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:ticker 6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, announces a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Michelle Mack, Director of Global Scientific Engagement, entitled "Beyond Syngeneics - Novel Tools for Addressing Human Specificity in Immuno-Oncology." Checkpoint inhibitors like anti-PD-1, anti-PD-L1, and anti-CTLA-4 have revolutionized cancer treatment and have recently gained approval in several cancer types. Despite their potential, immunotherapies face significant development challenges due to the specificity and complexity of the human immune system upon which they act. Crown Bioscience has generated innovative research models to address these obstacles early during preclinical drug development.

Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00Pressemelding

ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
