BlackBerry Wants To Keep Smart Cars Secure With 'Jarvis'

BlackBerry CEO John Chen

Once initiated, automakers will have online access to Jarvis and can scan any number of binary files at every stage of software development.

While Blackberry is initially targeting automakers, the tech could help with many other industries, scanning the complex software behind healthcare, industrial automation, aerospace and military defense projects, for example.

Once a auto company signs up for Jarvis, it can be customized for their own needs across their entire software supply chain, letting vehicle companies scan files for problems at all stages of development.

BlackBerry in September announced it would partner with auto supplier Delphi Automotive Plc on a software operating system for self-driving cars.

"Jarvis is a game-changer for OEMs because for the first time they have a complete, consistent, and near real-time view into the security posture of a vehicle's entire code base along with the insights and deep learning needed to predict and fix vulnerabilities, ensure compliance, and remain a step ahead of bad actors".

This includes the ability to evaluate new software under consideration as well as existing software in production.

BlackBerry has started trialing Jarvis with several of the world's largest automakers.

Automakers are already testing Jarvis, and at least one of them is happy with the results so far.

"In our independent study, Jarvis delivered excellent efficiencies in time-to-market, significantly reducing the time to security assess code from thirty days to seven minutes", Ralf Speth, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover, said in a statement. The cybersecurity firm says the product "battle-hardens" a vehicle's software, which is a "tempting attack surface for cyber criminals".
