Before entire cars can be connected to each other (V2V), individual parts or Engine Control Units (ECUs) have to be individually addressable and able to connect to each other securely. The industry has clearly recognized that digital certificates and encryption are a key technical enabler to achieve this. In 2018, the European Commission issued their “Certificate Policy for Deployment and Operation of European Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS)” which describes in detail the role of certificates and trust authorities in vehicles and infrastructure.
As the backbone of many of these embedded solutions, Utimaco Hardware Security Modules are used as “Root of Trust” by many automotive industry figures and suppliers.
Quantum computing has now emerged as a nightmare for the presently used cryptographic algorithms which include symmetric, asymmetric and hash functions. The resolution of hard mathematical problems, which was impossible with the traditional computing platforms, seems to be achieved by the recent research on quantum platforms.
With the availability of quantum computers, our digital infrastructure is at risk. With the Utimaco Q-safe firmware module running on SecurityServer, you can apply PQC algorithms, evaluate performance, usability and quantum resistance to your crypto infrastructure now.
Start implementing your quantum-safe roadmap.
Use the Utimaco Q-safe simulator to test the impact of quantum safe cryptography on your crypto infrastructure.
If you are busy implementing any of the following- use a Utimaco HSM:
Before entire cars can be connected to each other (V2V), individual parts or ECUs have to be individually addressable and able to connect to each other securely. The industry has clearly recognized that digital certificates and encryption are a key technical enabler to achieve this. The industry has been busy for more than half a decade finding better ways of implementing this. The need to share best practices and define actual and de facto industry standards for embedded HSMs and in-vehicle network-based HSMs has found expression in abbreviations like “HSMs as HTA, SHE, and ISO 15118.” As the backbone of many of these embedded solutions, Utimaco Hardware Security Modules are used as “Root of Trust” by many members of the automotive industry.
To ensure that the individual parts or ECUs can be addressed, car-makers work with PKI environments. Here, digital certificates and signing keys are generated, stored, managed and revoked.
Use our partner locator to find a company that fits your business & security requirements. All of them use Utimaco HSMs as a key enabler for applications that will help secure your business.
The Utimaco Partner Program has three main benefits for Partners. It aims to generate growth, it is designed to be easy to apply for and participate in, and it enables partners to be competent and visible in the market with regards to Utimaco products and services.
Here you will find brochures and data sheets, as well as our well-known “HSM for Dummies” e-book for download. We also provide you with a comprehensive set of case studies, white papers and past webinars. In the Utimaco Portal you can access integration guides and register for the Utimaco HSM simulator or to access our broad knowledge base.All downloads
