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.
Hundreds of thousands of KUKA robots are deployed every year in sensitive applications. RIS protects KUKA robots against cyber-attacks and helps users maintain a constant security posture. It patches existing security flaws, deploys an adaptive firewall and securely stores logs, while continously receiving updates and improvements.
The Robot Imunne System gets embed directly into MiR Autonomous Mobile Robots (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.
UVD Robots stands for Ultraviolet (UV) Disinfection robots. These robots perform disinfection autonomously at hospitals, airports or warehouses. There's a caveat though, UV light can affect humans causing suntan, sunburn or even a reportedly increased risk of skin cancer. By delivering a defense-in-depth approach, RIS ensures these robots remain secure.
Enabled Robotics sells collaborative robots that result from the integration of other technologies. As a result, the race to securing these robots becomes multi-dimensional. Building on top of multiple years, RIS gets embed directly into these robots deploying several layers of defense and protecting them against external cyber-threats while constantly adapting.
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.
SECURITY-CERTIFY YOUR ROBOTS
RIS' modern software architecture is based on the defense in depth principle and meets the software component requirements of IEC 62443 part 4-2 for industrial use. Meet industrial cyber security requirements by installing RIS in your robots.
Robots are often deployed in challenging environments where they are subject to a wide variety of attack vectors. From early 2021, RIS protects robots at EDI Latvia ensuring their Intellectual Property remains secure at all times.
From early 2021, RIS protects robots at Joanneum Research and avoids third party attacks against robotic AI services ensuring data integrity and accuracy during Reinforcement Learning research, deployment and production.
From December 2020 on, RIS is protecting the collaborative robots of Vicomtech's research solutions from cyberattacks, building an additional layer of security into their operations. RIS is deployed in the UR10 series cobots, securing them from cyber-attacks.
From July 2020, RIS is protecting RPK's collaborative robots from external cyberattacks, building an additional layer of security into the company's OT infrastructure. Through RIS, RPK's robots can now maintain safety requirements and fulfill their tasks securely.
Through a cooperation between Kaspersky and Alias Robotics, we demonstrated technology that helps companies address the challenge of securing OT environments with robots while maintaining their safety requirements.
