  • Fuzzing Infotainment Systems and Telematics Units With Agent Instrumentation
    Fuzzing Infotainment Systems and Telematics Units With Agent Instrumentation
    Dennis Kengo Oka, Senior Solutions Architect, Synopsys & Rikke Kuipers, Product Manager, Synopsys Recorded: Oct 8 2019 58 mins
    In the past few years, cybersecurity has become more intertwined into each step of the automotive development process. In particular, fuzz testing has proven to be a powerful approach to detect unknown vulnerabilities in automotive systems. However, with limited instrumentation, especially on systems such as in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) system and telematics units, there are several types of issues that go undetected, such as memory leaks and cases where the application crashes but restarts quickly. Since these systems are typically based on operating systems providing more functionality such as Linux and Android, it is possible to use appropriate tools to collect additional information from the system under test (SUT) to determine whether there were any exceptions detected during the fuzz testing. Furthermore, it would be possible to gather more details about the detected exceptions on the SUT which helps developers to better understand and identify the root cause of the issues and fix the problems more efficiently. To this end, we introduce the Agent Instrumentation Framework and explain how it can be used to improve fuzz testing of IVIs and telematics units. We show how additional information can be collected from the target system and used to identify whether there are exceptions on the SUT and additionally help developers identify the underlying cause of any issues detected. Finally, to showcase the effectiveness of the agent instrumentation framework we built a test bench based on this approach and performed fuzz testing on multiple SUTs. Based on our findings we highlight several examples of issues that would have not been detected unless we used agent instrumentation.
  • A Serial Seller’s Perspective on M&A Tech Due Diligence
    A Serial Seller’s Perspective on M&A Tech Due Diligence
    Irad Deutsch, CTO, Belong.Life and Phil Odence, GM, Synopsys Recorded: Sep 26 2019 57 mins
    On the buy side of a tech deal and want to better understand sellers? Selling a company and want to benefit from the experience of someone who’s been there (and been there and been there)?

    Building a successful software company takes a lot of blood, sweat, and tears. When a liquidity opportunity presents itself, sellers want to make sure they get the best deal they can, and quickly. During due diligence, the potential acquirer will delve into all facets of the technology. The more prepared the sell side is, the fewer issues will arise, and the smoother the transaction will be.

    What do buyers need, and what can prepared sellers do to streamline the process? Security, quality, and the intellectual property rights of the software are critical. Buyers, sellers, and their legal advisors need to be comfortable that no big technical issues will crop up post-close. Plus, they want to know that they have absolute and uncontested rights to the software assets—in particular, that there are no issues with open source licenses.

    Irad Deutsch, CTO of Belong.Life, has successfully made it through the process with two companies and has it down to a science for his third. Join Irad and Synopsys’ Phil Odence as they discuss the seller’s perspective, lessons learned on the seller’s side, and how to prepare for the M&A tech due diligence process.

  • How to Create a Modern IAM Framework for Healthcare.
    How to Create a Modern IAM Framework for Healthcare.
    Balraj Dhillon, Director, Engagement of Key Accounts Simeio Solutions, Stephen Payne, Principle Solutions Architect-ForgeRock Recorded: Aug 28 2019 55 mins
    Healthcare providers are using digital technology to access, secure, and share patient information in order to efficiently deliver care. Does your healthcare organization need assistance in securing and maintaining a single patient identity? Do you have an effective privacy and consent control model across your ecosystem? Without a comprehensive framework for patient data, many healthcare providers have incomplete data on patients that cannot be transferred or shared between and within differing organizations. This results in security, privacy, and data management challenges.

    In this joint ForgeRock and Simeio webinar, you will learn key strategies for modernizing your healthcare organization including:

    · Top challenges your peers face when managing data for authenticating patients, consent, and governing permissions for external physicians and partners

    · How to enable a secure, cost-effective privacy and consent model and data governance framework to unlock innovation

    · How to quickly deploy the right IAM solution for your organization, whether that is on-premise, multi-cloud, or in a hybrid model environment

    Join Balraj Dhillon, Director, Engagement, Key Accounts of Simeio Solutions, and Stephen Payne, Principle Solution Architect of ForgeRock, to learn how to modernize your healthcare organization.
