Secure Connected Cars

WISeKey secures connected cars

Using Trusted Cybersecurity IoT Technologies

Launched in mid-2017, WISeKey’s ISTANA PKI platform allowed WISeKey to enter the Connected Car industry by offering Daimler AG a secure way to validate the authenticity of different vehicle components, protect onboard communication between vehicle components and provide over-the-air software updates.
Additionally, ISTANA PKI’s authentication certificates are used by employees, dealers and suppliers to access car components to diagnose mechanical/technical issues and update software, from any location. The ISTANA PKI platform also allows users to securely interact with a car’s smart features using smartphones and other devices.

Two years later, WISeKey cemented its role in the Connected Car industry by granting Daimler a perpetual license for the use of certain ISTANA PKI modules in its vehicles. Also, WISeKey will continue to further upgrade its ISTANA PKI platform into an attractive solution to secure a variety of IoT applications.
