SafeRide Open-Sources CyberSecurity openSentry for AGL

SafeRide Technologies Ltd., the first automotive cybersecurity vendor to offer an advanced cyber-security software solution augmented by AI/machine-learning, announced the contribution of “openSentry”, an in-vehicle open-source deterministic cybersecurity stack, to the open source community, during the Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) All Member Meeting.

 “AGL is clearly showing strong traction in becoming an open platform standard for the connected car market, and we are excited to collaborate with the AGL community to help enhance the security of the platform,” said Hilik Stein, CTO of SafeRide Technologies. “By making openSentry open source, we hope to enable application developers to introduce innovative and robust connected vehicle applications with pre-built security features, to ensure vehicle and passenger security and safety, and minimize business exposure.”

openSentry offers a foundational security layer for vehicle applications that helps developers accelerate time-to-market in delivering innovative, connected, secure vehicle applications. Once deployed, the security stack can be extended to supporting advanced detection and accelerated response capabilities with a commercial grade in-vehicle stack, for preventing unknown zero-day threats, and for protecting transportation asset value.

“SafeRide has been an active contributor to AGL in our efforts to enhance the security of the platform,” said Dan Cauchy, Executive Director of Automotive Grade Linux at The Linux Foundation. “Cyber security is an important aspect in the development of new connected vehicle applications, and we value SafeRide’s continuing contributions to the project.”

openSentry is available for download directly from GitHub.
