Autotalks, a global specialist in V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) communication solutions, and Secure-IC, a global provider of end-to-end cybersecurity solutions for embedded systems, have announced a collaboration to enhance the security of Autotalks' advanced V2X communication solutions.

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

With the potential to revolutionise road safety and traffic efficiency, V2X technology must be fortified to withstand potential cyberattacks, data breaches, and unauthorised access. This realisation 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, leveraging the underlying hardware to create a state-of-the-art, certifiable V2X Hardware Security Module.

Moreover, Autotalks is building upon its past certification experience to achieve even more ambitious certification targets. Secure-IC's hardware IP not only provides essential cryptographic, randomness, and secure processing capabilities for Autotalks' firmware but also includes certification services, including the Common Criteria framework according to the EU V2X Protection Profile.

"The collaboration between Autotalks and Secure-IC signifies a shared commitment to advancing the security capabilities of V2X communication technology," said Amos Freund, VP R&D at Autotalks. "By leveraging Secure-IC's expertise in hardware security and certification services, Autotalks aims to deliver enhanced security features in its third-generation V2X chipset, further solidifying 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 and VP of Sales. “Our Securyzr Hardware Security Modules empowers Autotalks' cutting-edge chipsets with state-of-the-art security features, bolstering trust in connected vehicle ecosystems."

Secure-IC builds upon its expertise and strong footprint, cultivated through robust relationships with OEMs, Tier 1 suppliers, and chipset vendors in the automotive industry, ensuring comprehensive lifecycle security, from chip-to-cloud.
