Webinar: Distributed IDPS

A distributed system for attack detection and prevention in vehicles

Recording: Streamed on 12 Oct 2021

Language: English

Duration: 38 min 20 sec

Speakers: Dr. Jan Holle, Lead Product Manager, Intrusion Detection & Prevention Solution (IDPS) & Andreas Weber, Product Manager, Host-based IDS and IDPS Distribution Framework

An intrusion detection and prevention system (IDPS) will be a core element of continuous cybersecurity in the automotive industry as permanent cyber risk management is becoming a type approval imperative due to new regulations. The IDPS support in this case and act as protection against cyberattacks and their fleet-wide scaling. But what are the specific advantages of a distributed IDPS in the vehicle? And where in the E/E architecture do the various IDPS components best unfold their effect?

Our ETAS experts Jan Holle and Andreas Weber will speak about why distributed E/E architectures require a distributed IDPS that maps the specific protection needs of the vehicle systems. They will also discuss the relevance of using different IDS sensors according to requirements, the pre-qualification of security events within the vehicle, and how the IDPS thus becomes the cornerstone of effective permanent cyberprotection.


  • New type-approval-relevant regulations such as UN R155: Why you need an intrusion detection and prevention solution (IDPS)
  • Distributed E/E architectures: Why they require a distributed IDPS and what common deployment scenarios are
  • In-vehicle management of security events with distributed IDS managers, an IDS reporter: Why the AUTOSAR IDS standard should be advanced
  • Outlook on what the future development of the distributed IDPS will look like
  • Q & A
