The Announcement

Under the terms of the agreement and being global tier-1 suppliers to the automotive industry, the Companies will pair Honeywell's intrusion detection technology software and security operations centers with Lear's automotive electrical distribution systems and connected gateway expertise. The collaboration between Honeywell and Lear aims to provide automakers with an architecture to address vehicle prognostics and help ensure passenger safety and security.

The two Companies have developed an effective system to identify and validate software commands and data generated by more than 100 million lines of code, governing modern vehicle operation. Honeywell's software and global security centers monitor in-vehicle network communications. Similarly, Lear's portfolio includes electrical gateways and security modules which can be an effective solution to detect and report anomalies preceding a mechanical failure or the intentional hack of a vehicle.

According to Honeywell, there are more than a dozen attack surfaces which could act as point of entry for hacking into a passenger vehicle. Honeywell is a leading software developer that enables safety and cybersecurity solutions for a number of industries and is now extending its portfolio to connected and autonomous vehicle development. Approximately half of Honeywell's 23,000-strong global engineering team develops software. Honeywell's software enables real-time vehicle performance diagnostics that can deliver increased vehicle reliability and up to 5% reduction in warranty costs.
