Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) and IBM are teaming up to work on a new connected vehicle security solution with the intent to make car hacks much more difficult in the future. The new crypto chip and key solution is being showcased first at IAA International Automobile Fair in Frankfurt, Germany from September 17 to 27.

IT security is becoming a crucial precondition for the automotive industry in terms of a wider adoption of connected vehicles.

Erich Nickel, director of Automotive Solutions CoC DACH at IBM, stated: “With dozens of Electronic Control Units (ECUs) and several in-vehicle bus systems as well as various wireless connections to the external world of a connected vehicle, it is vital to protect those systems in the best possible way against remote hacks, fraudulent attacks and any attempts that could affect traffic safety. As a multitude of connected vehicle online services are already available, involving aspects of data privacy and secure payments, secure infrastructures and communication channels are needed.”

The products and solutions fulfill the requirements and standards of the specific industries such as ISO/TS 16949, which is considered the model for quality management systems in the automotive industry.”
