Prove & Run Announces Strategic Partnership with Kalray to Secure Manycore Architectures

Paris, France, February 25, 2019 – Prove & Run, a leader in embedded security, announces a strategic partnership with Kalray (Euronext Growth Paris: ALKAL), a pioneer in processors for intelligent systems, to bring more security on Kalray’s manycores MPPA™ architectures. This partnership aims to meet the growing security needs of so-called “CPS” (Cyber ​​Physical Systems), e.g. platforms that are in direct interaction with the physical world. As part of this partnership, Prove & Run brings to Kalray a recognized expertise in security architectures and will offer its secure firmware solutions and certified OS to Kalray’s MPPA™ customers for high-end security services.

The rise of artificial intelligence is about to revolutionize markets. Tomorrow’s autonomous cars, future aircraft engines or robots share the same need: access to new CPS platforms to process, via increasingly sophisticated algorithms, an increasing amount of data and functions. These processes must be performed while ensuring that the strict safety and security requirements shared by these different industries are met.

As CPSs become more self-reliant and accountable, the security risks they face or create increase at the same pace. In addition, CPSs must also face a global increase in risks related to the emergence of increasingly sophisticated and especially well funded hackers. CPS designers must address this issue by ensuring that security is integrated into the design of a CPS from the beginning, down to the lowest levels of hardware and software. Merely protecting the perimeter of a CPS, using a firewall for example, is no longer sufficient. This issue is amplified by the constant increase in the level of connectivity available to CPSs with a variety of communication mechanisms both local (WiFi, Bluetooth, V2X, etc.) and remote (LTE, LPWAN, satellite, etc.).

Today’s avionic and automotive platforms do not use the security features as applied, for example, in the computer industry or in the banking sector. According to Frost & Sullivan:

  • “With 85% of vehicles expected to be connected to the Internet by 2020 and more than 50 vulnerabilities per vehicle, cybercrime will pose a real threat to the industry.” Thus, if OEMs are unaware of the cybersecurity aspect, they will compromise their users, risking the value of their brand and will have to answer to their financial and moral obligations.
  • With the digital revolution, modern vehicles are equipped with a high-tech architecture and communication systems that require computer security. “Vehicles today operate millions of lines of code. With an estimate of one security weakness per 1,000 lines of code, this could mean a high risk of being hacked. “

Eric Baissus, Chairman of Kalray’s Management Board: “We are very pleased to partner with Prove & Run to provide our customers with the smart solutions of tomorrow with a very high level of security. Prove & Run’s expertise in security architectures, their secure OS and firmware solutions will enable our MPPA™ intelligent processors to meet the growing needs for high security services. “

Dominique Bolignano, President and Founder of Prove & Run:Prove & Run is pleased to be involved in the development of Kalray and to participate in the success of the MPPA™ platform. This partnership will enable us to combine at best our mutual expertise, share our understanding of the needs of the CPS market and deliver security solutions to meet the most critical security issues.”

February 25, 2019 – To support the widespread deployment of secure IoT solutions based on the Platform Security Architecture (PSA) framework, ARM and lead test laboratories have unveiled PSA Certified, an independent security certification scheme for IoT devices. Prove & Run is proud to be part of this initiative and to have played a critical role collecting critical input from other lead partners and the wider ecosystem, and contributing to writing the security scheme documents that will be released as part of the program. Further details can be found in the press release.

Paris, France – February 6th, 2019 – Prove & Run has been selected as the security technology partner of the Kalray’s ES3CAP project.

The main objective of the ES3CAP project is to build around Kalray’s MPPA® (“Massively Parallel Processor Array”) hardware platform an environment for critical applications that require high-performance and highly-secure computing capacity. The project is led by Kalray, with the support of leading automotive, aerospace and defense manufacturers, including Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, MBDA and Safran. Prove & Run will contribute in the project with its unique expertise in security architecture, secure OS and development of highly security services. Further details about the ES3CAP project can be found in this press release.
