WHY HYPERVISOR

Without a sure solution the connected car industry will become the next battleground for malicious hackers, with potentially deadly results.

Connected cars feature up to 120 independent connected in-car solutions, many of which have unproven security and are developed by different suppliers. These complexities make overall system security extremely difficult.

In 2015 white-hat hackers disabled a Jeep Cherokee while it was being driven. The same hackers revealed additional security issues just a year later. While there was no loss of life, the cost to Chrysler was a recall of 1.4 million vehicles.

The diagram below demonstrates the range of both critical and non-critical in-car solutions that most current cars feature today:

Hypervisor technology enables multiple systems to be operated through a single CPU, presenting an opportunity to rationalise complex in-car hardware and software systems and ultimately improve security and ease of management.

HISTORY OF HYPERVISOR

First utilized in the banking industry as far back as the 1970s Hypervisor was still highly complex when Perseus co-founders began innovating within the space in 2008.

Hypervisor was first adopted by the banking industry in the 1970s, but by 2008 it was still a complex technology, comparable to that of Linux kernel.

By 2011 Perseus CEO, Dr. Suh’s pioneering work and leadership of the open source community had resulted in major breakthroughs in Hypervisor development that enabled significant steps towards commercialization of the technology, as demonstrated in the diagram below.

Founded in 2016, Perseus is dedicated to the further development of Hypervisor technology for the connected car industry that has among the highest demand for visualization solutions and for security – Hypervisor presents the best opportunity to achieve both goals.

HYPERVISOR-BASED SECURITY

Once in-car connected systems have been rationalised Hypervisor-based security enables those systems to be assigned specific data transfer parameters. If parameters are breached it signals a potential threat that can immediately be addressed. Perseus has developed a groundbreaking algorithmic solution that automatically takes action in the event of any potential security breach in order to isolate the issue while manual controls kick in, or prevent it entirely. This level of real time, flexible control is unique in the industry.
