Green Hills Software unveiled its Platform for Secure Connected Car, featuring the industry’s most comprehensive solution for vehicle and smart city manufacturers building vehicle-to-anything (V2X) and European car-to-anything (C2X) On-Board Units (OBU) and intelligent transportation infrastructure. Together with INTEGRITY Security Services (ISS), a Green Hills Software company, and first partners Autotalks and Commsignia, this Platform enables a clear path for OEMs and Tier 1s to immediately address the range of challenges to design, develop and deploy the most secure and efficient V2V solutions for the next generation of vehicle awareness as outlined in the US Department of Transportation (US DOT) New Proposed Rule Making (NPRM), Docket number NHTSA-2016-0126. The Green Hills Platform for Secure Connected Car is the first and only platform of its kind to incorporate security, safety and device management in one platform.
The connected car represents the next stage in the evolution of motor vehicle safety beyond what current vehicle-resident technologies like in-vehicle cameras and sensors can provide by employing omnidirectional radio signals that provide 360-degree coverage and the ability to “see” around corners and “see” through other vehicles. For the first time, unfamiliar vehicles and roadside units on untrusted public networks will be able to communicate with a vehicle’s OBU – with no human involvement – and influence life-critical decisions and vehicle actions. Whereas functionality, performance and safety have been the traditional foundation for automotive software, the connected car also demands authentication, identification and separation of critical software components running in a routinely insecure environment for the operational lifespan of the vehicle.
“Security and safety are essential for the connected car where the presence of a V2X device cannot become a new threat vector in the vehicle,” says Dan Mender, vice president, business development, Green Hills Software. “By combining proven, high performance, integrated safety and security solutions for OBU use along with mature V2X device management, OEMs and Tier 1s can deliver connected car solutions to consumers that unleash the safety-enhancement potential V2X will bring to global highways without compromise.”
Green Hills Software, INTEGRITY Security Services and its strategic partners Autotalks and Commsignia have developed an unmatched portfolio of integrated V2X capabilities to help speed the design innovation for the next generation of connected vehicles globally. The first instantiation of the Platform demonstrated at TU-Automotive Detroit highlights partners Autotalks and their secure V2X automotive SoC and Commsignia for complete V2X stack, extensive standards-based applications and Commsignia IEEE 1609.2 security.
