Do you recognize these challenges?

Vehicle manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers face challenges when they implement security functions in connected vehicles. They need to:

  • Follow international standards for plug & charge (ISO 15118) or for V2X (IEEE 1609.2), which rely on PKI technology.
  • Protect drivers’ privacy by complying with requirements, such as C-ITS.
  • Issue an extremely high volume of certificates for the V2X use case.
  • Authenticate vehicles to protect unauthorized access to backend services.
  • Protect software by code-signing in order to avoid manipulations during upgrades to the vehicle.
  • Prevent malware from executing in the embedded computers of the vehicles
