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.”

June 19th, 2018 – Europe invests 50 million € in Secure and Safe Automated Systems

69 partners working together to develop future technologies focused on security, safety and privacy across multiple application domains

SECREDAS stands for “Product Security for Cross Domain Reliable Dependable Automated Systems. SECREDAS consortium – 69 partners from 16 European countries – has kicked-off the 50 MEuro ECSEL Joint Undertaking research and innovation project, to build a reference architecture for Secure and Safe Automated systems compliant with the new GDPR Regulation. The focus will be on automotive, rail and personal healthcare, all of which demand high security and safety, covering technologies such as radar, lidar, Vehicle-to-Infrastructure and in-vehicle networks.

The project started on May 1st, 2018 and the kick-off meeting took place on May 16-17 at NXP Semiconductors, coordinator of the project, and it will last for 3 years. First results are expected to be demonstrated at the ITS European Congress on June 3-6, 2019 in Helmond/Eindhoven, Netherlands (see

Bert De Colvenaer, Executive Director of the ECSEL JU: “SECREDAS is one of the first ECSEL JU funded projects which looks at security, safety and privacy across multiple application domains. The new European GDPR-regulation provides the opportunity to develop future technologies able to answer to urgent safety, security and privacy concerns. The ECSEL JU programme demonstrates once again its flexibility to take up new challenges”.

Patrick Pype, SECREDAS Project Leader: “We are proud to have gathered together the key European stakeholders with expertise in their respective application domains as well as in the security & privacy area. This will allow to make a giant leap forward in the trust of road users in autonomous transport modes and healthcare. The consortium expects that 25% of all new road vehicles will be fitted with SECREDAS technology by 2030, representing a value of 10B€”.

The intertwining of safety, security & privacy of connected and automated systems is a concern in multiple application domains for many consumers in the European Union. As an example, one in four potential buyers/users in Europe of automated driving is reluctant to do so, mainly due to a lack of trust into its security. Hence industry and research communities need to work on an answer to ensure that these concerns are no longer roadblocks for further evolutions in the transport and personal healthcare sectors.

The high-level goal of SECREDAS is to develop and validate multi-domain architecting methodologies, reference architectures, components and suitable integration and verification approaches for automated systems, as well as taking into account and influencing standardization, certification and qualification in different domains, combining high security and privacy protection while preserving functional-safety and operational performance.With SECREDAS a first important step will be made into the direction of developing “trust”-building components and (sub)systems for, in particular, the European transportation and medical industry of tomorrow.

The vision of SECREDAS is to take an important step forward by providing the means to enhance this trustworthiness. This will assist in making connected and automated vehicles a market reality, to ensure that European OEMs remain competitive and that they remain world leaders, together with embedded system and semiconductor suppliers. In addition, SECREDAS addresses cross-domain cybersecurity, privacy and safety related technologies in the areas of automated systems in the personal healthcare & railway sectors, with strong support to cross-domain actions.

ARM released three Threat Models and Security Analyses (TMSA, also known as a Protection Profile) prepared by Prove & Run on ARM’s behalf for respectively a network camera, a water meter and an asset tracker. A TMSA is the starting point for assessing the security risk faced by a connected device. From this research, the right level of security can be determined, and then functional requirements established to mitigate the threats for the corresponding devices.

With ProvenCore and ProvenCore-M, Prove & Run’s ultra secure OS kernel for ARM Cortex-A and Cortex-M devices, Prove & Run can help the designers and users of network cameras, water meters and asset trackers to integrate the required security features so as to be protected from cyber-attacks at the right level.

Prove & Run is proud to be a member of a consortium of industry leaders (which include Altran, Orano, Framatome, ArianeGroup, Arkema and Total) that have just launched 2IdO, a project aimed as bringing the benefits of the Internet of Things to industrial and manufacturing markets.

The 2IDO project (Industrial Internet of Devices and Operators), is a consortium made up of eleven partners including three SMEs, two research organizations and six industrial companies federated around a major industrial challenge: to develop a new global system of efficient wireless communication, from miniaturized sensor to applications, with a high penetration in constrained environments and relying on secure technological bricks adapted from existing IoT markets.
