Secure OTA Communications

One of the major benefits of a connected car is the ability to do in-field Over The Air (OTA) software and firmware updates, minimizing the need for recalls and trips to the dealership. The CryptoManager platform provides a hardware root of trust embedded in the vehicle enabling automakers and car owners to verify that the OTA update is authentic. Additionally, the system utilizes personalized keys that are unique to each vehicle to further ensure the integrity of the communication between car and cloud.
