SODA-IIoT4Automotive: Blockchain to keep the Automotive ECU up-to-date

Co-designed with PSA Group and Valeo, SODA-IIoT4Automotive offers a secure way to update automotive ECU software/firmware. For PSA and Valeo the accountability and the availability of ECU software updates are crucial, particularly for security patches which require a fast deployment.




Automotive vehicles are composed of several dozens of Electronic Control Units (ECU). With the increasing connectivity of the vehicles, the update of the ECU software will soon be performed Over-The-Air (OTA). This includes the update of the in-vehicle infotainment, but also the more critical ECUs such as the body, motion and Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) ECUs.

The SODA-IIoT4Automotive demonstrator is built on top of the CHESS platform (Cybersecurity Hardening Environment for Systems of Systems), an experimental and technical cybersecurity platform funded by ANSSI to support cybersecurity research effort.

This platform is part of French Government “Nouvelle France Industrielle”, Cybersecurity plan, action 8: set up one or more testing and demonstration cybersecurity platforms.
