Automotive Security

Keep Your Automotive Components Authentic, Safe, and Secure

As the automotive industry becomes more reliant on independent vehicle decision-making and increased cloud connectivity, the need for automotive security has never been more important. Modern-era automotive security is about more than just securing door locks. Automotive security has expanded to include vehicle authentication, counterfeit prevention of advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) peripherals, and securing data communication to the cloud. With the imminent deployment of mass-produced, battery-powered, and autonomous vehicles, it is vital to take stock of how these technologies could become harmful if they are not correctly implemented and protected. Securing technology for the cars of tomorrow requires AEC-Q100 Grade 1-qualified secure components, both to enhance safety and preserve optimum system functionality.
