Software Version of the COPYLynx System Enables Encryption of Valuable Data During Testing.
German Test Supplier, b-plus has announced the launch of its new software version of the COPYLynx system. This data copy station enables the encryption of valuable data during vehicle testing. Both disk decryption and file-level encryption before transfer from the vehicle to the data centre or cloud are now in the feature set.
The COPYLynx transfers multi-sensor test data from test vehicles to data centers of automotive manufacturers and Tier1s. For data security of the raw data, encryption can be configured via the web interface. The entire encryption and copying process can then be handled automatically.
"Test data captured with our AVETO Toolbox is sensitive development data" explains Adrian Bertl, Team Leader Product Marketing at b-plus technologies. "With this update, we offer a building block to protect test data during the transport from the vehicle to the data center."
Different equipment variants enable the use directly in the vehicle and the data centre. For data encryption, this version of the COPYLynx supports Bitlocker and Microsoft Azure Volumes at the data carrier level, and OpenSSL with the AES256CBC algorithm at the file level. After transfer, the multi-sensor data can be used directly for further processing for SiL and HiL simulation procedures.
