Solutions

Secure Environment

Building atop of the Arm secure boot feature, Irdeto’s Secure Environment leverages this hardware root of trust to ensure that even if a hacker has breached vehicle perimeter security, critical files and application data are safeguarded, executables and scripts cannot be modified, and reverse engineering is prevented. In addition, renewable security continually resets the hacker’s position and knowledge to ground zero – forcing a frustrated hacker to move on to a softer target. All attempts are monitored, and a range of policy-based OEM responses can be configured.

Through partnership with SafeRide and the integration of their vSentry product, the ability has been added to detect unknown (zero day) threats using advanced Machine Learning algorithms that detect anomalous behaviour associated with the threats. Updates can immediately be deployed to counter the threat.

Customer benefits: Public safety is ensured, and OEM brand reputations are protected.

Keystone

This solution allows vehicle owners (car rental, fleet operators, dealerships, families) to create and control policies for multi-vehicle user access, vehicle usage such as speed enforcement, and specific user settings. Integration with existing Bluetooth vehicle mobile device access systems is possible. Alternatively, we supply our own mobile app solution offering a complete, secure policy-based vehicle access product.

Customer benefits: The concept of Vehicle-as-a-Service is gaining momentum in many regions and to which Keystone is perfectly suited. This opens new business models for differentiation in rental, dealership, ride sharing services etc.

Keys and Credentials

As an Automotive OEM or Tier 1 supplier, rolling out software updates for new innovative features is complex and needs to follow a trusted approach in terms of the creation, use and management of the associated cryptographic keys.

Irdeto is the world leader in cryptographic key management. This service can be wholly managed by the OEMs / Tier 1s themselves on-premise or, fully managed by Irdeto or, a hybrid of both.

Customer benefits: OEMs are free to focus on revenue-generating innovation, leaving security to Irdeto.

Security Services

Irdeto Security Services can help customers with: Security assessments, Cyber incident planning and response, policy-driven security telemetry, Cyber forensics and law enforcement support, 24x7 monitoring in Irdeto Security Operations Canter (SOC).
