The Robot Immune System (RIS) is the resulting work of more than two years of research and development funded by the Basque Government and the European Union, among others. Led by a cellular biologist, our team which includes biologists, roboticists, security researchers and software engineers brought immunological concepts to and advanced software system that detects, protects and prevents robots against malicious attacks. As the Human Immune System (HIS), RIS adapts to its environment and evolves over time. The following video summarizes the biology behind the Robot Immune System (RIS).
RIS is a Robot Endpoint Protection Platform (REPP), an integrated suite of endpoint protection technologies for robots —including a next-gen antivirus, hardening for known flaws, data encryption, intrusion prevention mechanisms, data loss prevention, etc.— that detects, prevents, stops and informs on a variety of threats that affect the robotic system.
RIS adds cybersecurity protection to Universal Robots. It integrates into the controller and acts as its robot immune system, patching existing security flaws, encrypting relevant data and logging processes securely. A continuously evolving and adaptative security system for robots maintained by our group of security and robotics experts.
The Robot Imunne System gets embed directly into MiR AMRs, protecting them against external cyber-threats from the inside, while quick adapting to the robot's environment. RIS allows MiR robots to be used securely on industrial and professional environments, including healthcare applications.
ROS and ROS 2 are the de facto standards in robotics. RIS integrates at the core of ROS, protecting the robot computational graph from the wire to the userland, and going through the kernel. An immune system for the robot operating system, one that delivers integrity, confidentiality and availability with a zero trust security architecture.
Did you find any vulnerability? If that's the case feel free to send it to us and we will take care of it immediately.
