PKI Certificate management to Vehicle Telematics Control Unit and Cloud application
Vehicle manufactures utilize PKI Certificates for identity, authentication and encryption to network services. The large number of vehicles which pass through the production line need to be provisioned a unique identity. Throughout the lifetime of the vehicle the ownership may need to be transferred if the vehicle is sold or leased, requiring a new certificate to provisioned to the vehicle. This requires the need for an automated approach to PKI management to vehicle and applications.
KeyScaler provides vehicle trust and automated secure PKI certificate management. KeyScaler trust anchor technology will be deployed on the Vehicle TCU to enable automated certificate delivery to the vehicle, and the chosen connected vehicle application platform.
A medical device manufacturer provides surgical robots to perform joint replacement surgery. The devices are fitted with a gateway that will allow for some communication to specific cloud-hosted services, owned by the device manufacturer. Treatment files are created in a lab and sent to the robot for performing the surgical procedure. Post-surgical audit logs are also returned to the cloud services for compliance reporting.
KeyScaler provides secure robot registration and continuous authentication, certificate provisioning, end-to-end data security, token issuance for authentication to IoT platform, and secure decommissioning at end of life – with full support for offline devices.
