Autotalks and Secure-IC partner to boost V2X security

Cesson-Sévigné (France) – April  9th, 2024 – Autotalks, a company developing technology that allows vehicles to communicate with each other and their surroundings, and Secure-IC, a cybersecurity company that develops solutions to protect data in connected devices, like V2X communication systems in vehicles, announced a collaboration to enhance the security of Autotalks’ advanced V2X communication solutions. The chipset is based on a combination of advanced encryption algorithms and secure software, which work together to protect sensitive data and prevent unauthorized access.

Autotalks and Secure-IC will present their joint efforts at booth #4-571 during the Embedded World event from April 9-11 in Nuremberg, Germany. The companies will showcase a working module equipped with Autotalks’ TEKTON3 chipset and Secure-IC’s Securyzr™ Hardware Security Module (HSM).

V2X technology has the potential to revolutionize road safety and traffic efficiency. It must be fortified to withstand potential cyberattacks, data breaches, and unauthorized access. Furthermore, this realization led Autotalks to partner with Secure-IC, ensuring that its third-generation chipsets have robust security.

Autotalks made the strategic decision to license Secure-IC’s Securyzr™ IP and integrate it into its chipsets. This integration was further enhanced by Autotalks’ V2X Security firmware. Moreover, it leveraged the underlying hardware to create a state-of-the-art, certifiable V2X Hardware Security Module.

“The collaboration between Autotalks and Secure-IC signifies a shared commitment. Moreover, this commitment is to advancing the security capabilities of V2X communication technology,” said Amos Freund, VP R&D at Autotalks. “Autotalks aims to deliver enhanced security features in its third generation V2X chipset. Secure-IC achieves this by leveraging its expertise in hardware security and certification services. This move further solidifies its position as a leader in V2X in general and in V2X cybersecurity specifically.”

“By partnering with Autotalks, Secure-IC reinforces its dedication to fostering innovation in automotive cybersecurity” said Yan-Taro Clochard, Secure-IC’s CMO & VP of Sales. “Our Securyzr™ Hardware Security Modules empowers it’s cutting-edge chipsets with state-of-the-art security features, bolstering trust in connected vehicle ecosystems.”
