Green Hills’ Integrity Security Services delivers certificates for V2V comms

December 21, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
ISS – the Integrity Security Services arm of embedded software vendor Greehn Hills – has introduced a service for secure generation and delivery of production V2X/C2X certificates.

In response to the US Department of Transportation (US DOT) announcement of New Proposed Rule Making (NPRM), Docket no. NHTSA-2016-0126, the new offering is termed the V2X/C2X Certificate Managed Service (CMS). It is positioned as the only production-grade system available to deliver vehicle-to-anything (V2X) and European car-to-anything (C2X) certificates to automotive and smart city product manufacturers and operators worldwide.

The ISS CMS incorporates experience gained developing the Security Credential Management Systems (SCMS) for US DOT / Crash Avoidance Metrics Partners LLC (CAMP) – making it the de facto standard in V2X credentials. The ISS service eliminates SCMS overhead by providing direct delivery of CAMP, IEEE 1609.2-2016, ETSI TS 103 097 compliant certificates to devices in manufacturing, as well as, over-the-air certificate top-offs over the vehicles’ lifetime.

“Certificates are required to securely communicate safely between different vehicle makes and models. The ISS CMS is an out-of-the-box solution for production certificates, so the safety benefits of V2X communication may be realised as soon as possible,” said David Sequino, vice president and general manager of INTEGRITY Security Services. “The ISS team provides the expertise OEMs need to meet the NPRM guidance at the lowest risk and cost.”

ISS CMS is being launched as part of a complete V2X networking solution including all hardware, protocols stacks, and certificates required for V2V and C2C On Board Units (OBUs). OBUs are pre-provisioned by CMS with enrolment certificates, initial pseudonym certificates blocks, and current CRL. Wireless connectivity provides the link between the OBUs and the ISS CMS for all certificate top-offs and CRL updates.
