BlackBerry's 'Jarvis' scans connected, autonomous cars for software vulnerabilities

The service could be expanded to work in other industries, and could provide a pivot point for BlackBerry to regain market share in the security space. Blackberry claims it can scan and deliver insights in minutes, reducing the time in one case study from more than 30 days to seven minutes. According to BlackBerry, this type of distributed supply chain setup creates a need for software that can predict and fix vulnerabilities in near real-time in order to stay ahead of potential "bad actors" and avoid failures caused by human error. Once an automaker signs up, Jarvis can scan any piece of software that may go into a new auto to detect possible vulnerabilities. This replaces a complicated manual scanning process, potentially saving developers money, time, and energy, the release noted.

Blackberry is marketing the software to automakers which shall power its turnaround effort, however, it can further have applications in healthcare and industrial automation. It is said to provide automakers with online access to its scanning capabilities, and can scan "any number of binary files at every stage of software development".

The software will be sold on a pay-as-you-go basis and will be made available for an OEM's entire software platform.

"BlackBerry Jarvis addresses the software cybersecurity needs of the automotive industry".

"Connected and autonomous vehicles require some of the most complex software ever developed, creating a significant challenge for automakers who must ensure the code complies with industry and manufacturer-specific standards while simultaneously battle-hardening a very large and tempting attack surface for cybercriminals", BlackBerry Executive Chairman and CEO, John Chen, said at North American International Automotive Show (NAIAS) on Monday. The development teams will have immediate access to the vulnerabilities through user-friendly dashboards with specific cautions and advisories.

That some confidence from Chen right there, but the company has got some big names in the world of cars on its roster, including Jaguar Land Rover which is now trialling Jarvis. A manufacturer can scan the software in the vehicle at each stage of production.
