Connected Car Security
ForgeRock helps you secure vehicles from malicious hacking by those looking to exploit the lack of secure digital identity in the connected car. The frequency and severity of Internet of Things (IoT) hacks and breaches highlight the need to safeguard connected vehicles. This means protecting vehicles with a proven identity platform, providing remote access to vehicles, limiting access depending on user role (valet, mechanic, and others), and ensuring that only authorized users can access car data and telematics systems.
Assigning a digital identity to a fleet of connected vehicles results in more information, improved maintenance, and better optimization of fleet usage. Fleet managers can pull diagnostics, get alerts, track vehicle activity, and allow different levels of access to the vehicle, depending on user role, all while ensuring vehicles are digitally secure.
Identity and the Connected Car
As the industry moves beyond connected cars to fully realized New Mobility services, federated digital identities will play an increasingly important role.
A key industry goal is to extend the user’s digital life to connected cars — enabling the same services used at home or at the office to physical mobility. To make this simple and frictionless, car manufacturers need to provide a version of single sign-on (SSO) — “Car-as-a-Service” — linking the authenticated sessions of various digital services to the car for the duration of the journey. Digital identity will provide the mechanism for this seamless and secure experience.
Next Stop, the Connected Car
Digital Identity applied to the connected car and the people who interact with it can change all of this and so much more.
