The rapidly growing connectivity of vehicles is opening up numerous opportunities for new functions and attractive business models. At the same time, it represents a challenge for cyber-attacker due to the increase of the attack surface of modern vehicle. Cyber-attacks can have a huge impact on the safety of the vehicle and could cause financial damage.
Unauthorized access and data manipulation represents only the main threats that can affect the ECUs, for these reasons countermeasures become a must.
drivesec has developed a software module that acts like a Hardware Security Module (HSM).
The main feature of DriV-SHEC are:
A software secure element fully customizable and compatible with openssl
Support for cryptographic algorithm (AES, CMAC, SHA, Key Derivation Function)
Support for random generator (TRNG, PRNG)
Support for RSA key generation
Key exchange protocols (Diffie-Hellman)
In addition this component is secure itself by means:
Use of more that 20 software obfuscation techniques
Self tampering protection
Secure storage of data and keys with AEAD algorithms
