Transforming the automotive industry

Automotive IDEMIA

Over the next decade, few major industries are likely to be as disrupted by technology as the automotive sector. The connected car with its portfolio of services and the rise of autonomous vehicles transforms the world of car makers, Tier 1 suppliers, service providers and drivers alike. For automotive industry players, the future lies in building a long-term, personalized relationship with drivers and passengers through a set of personalized digital services.

IDEMIA is playing its part in this transformation, which will rely not only on car communications, but also on two key capabilities – providing “security by design” in a connected car, and managing the “Augmented Identity” of the driver. IDEMIA has already developed solutions in both these areas and its portfolio of products and services is growing rapidly.

For connected car security, IDEMIA provides car makers and Tier 1 suppliers with PEARL Auto, an embedded hardware element that protects the car’s electronics from cyberattacks and makes a secure, encrypted connection with cloud-based services. Connectivity is carried out by a dedicated range of eSIM for vehicles, DAKOTA, and by the M-Connect cloud service, which enable, on the one hand, car makers to easily manage connectivity over vehicles lifetime and, on the other hand, end-users to enjoy a new connectivity experience.

For driver identity management, IDEMIA draws on a wealth of solutions allowing, in a preliminary step, to create a trusted digital ID. This ensures user authentication convenience for later usage outside and inside the car. Once enrolled, drivers benefit from a seamless digital journey – using IDEMIA’s keyless solution to open the vehicle and in-car biometrics to start the engine instead of a physical key. Moreover, by authenticating the user, the vehicle will automatically grant him/her a fine-tuned range of services.

With IDEMIA’s proven security and identity solutions, automotive industry players can realize the wealth of opportunities offered by the connected car, and create new relationships with their customers. For drivers and passengers it also means a safer and more convenient mobility experience on the road ahead.
