AI/blockchain specialist asvin GmbH redefines cybersecurity.

Nothing less than a paradigm shift in dealing with cyber risks is asvin’s focus. At this year’s blockchain and Web3 event CV Summit 2022 in Zug, Switzerland, asvin CTO Rohit Bohara will demonstrate from 14-15 September in his pitch how OTA security will work in the future.

State-of-the-Art Software Bill of Material (SBOM) solutions are provided by centralized and often legacy software systems, reflecting the non-agile and waterfall-based method of software creation. Distrusted Software Bill of Material (D-SBOM) meanwhile is a novel approach to manage these challenges.
By use of blockchain technology, a new ecosystem of suppliers can commit and exchange information of software used in connected components. The process of commitment is secured by blockchain protocols, and the information stored is trusted by the census mechanism. Information will be additionally secured by encryption methods for distributed computing to avoid the unauthorized access on security and IP relevant information.
Excample: Serving connected vehicles with Over the Air (OTA) updates will affect the way how software will be developed from waterfall to agile methodologies. Fixing bugs and vulnerabilities for connected cars or assets require to reduce the software lifecycle from development, testing, audit towards over the air distribution. Using the Decentralized Ledger Technology (DLT), D-SBOM has introduced a novel approach to fill the missing link between providers of OTA software and car OEMs. Due to the effective use of DLT, the asvin solution „beehive“ is more resilient compared to any solutions based on the conventional centralized database architecture. Last not least: D-SBOM is the only considerable EU-based solution in the domain.
