Use Case: Secure Key Generation, Storage, and Distribution

Find out how Device Authority and Entrust partnered to provide solutions to a global manufacturer of automotive components, streamlining the process by utilizing both KeyScaler and Entrust PKI.

Helping you control vehicle access and authentication

As the digital car industry rapidly evolves, the potential for profit increases as you develop new IoT features, but so does the potential for criminal activity. The more smart and connected you make your car or service, the more challenges arise with authentication, access, and product tampering.

Smart features are a fundamental security challenge that require advanced key provisioning, management, and key sharing mechanisms to solve them. Luckily, Device Authority has the IoT security technology to do just that.

Manufacturers are constantly innovating to provide new smart features like remote car unlocking using just a smartphone. But what happens if access gets into the wrong hands?

Vehicle Theft & Tampering

Without proper authentication for vehicle drivers and device trust, criminals could potentially steal vehicles by hacking into your network.

Not only are smart vehicles at risk of theft, but cybercriminals could also gain access to the vehicle controls and remotely manipulate the vehicle’s function to put the driver’s life in danger.

PR Crisis & Falling Stock Value

If your smart vehicle is the target of cyberattacks, not only is your driver’s safety on the line, but so are your profits, brand integrity, and reputation.

If an accident or theft on your watch makes the headlines, you’ll likely see a sharp decline in your stock market value as investors race to withdraw their investment.
