V2X Communication

V2X Communication

Vehicle to Everything (V2X) - securing transmission of data from Vehicle to any entity

V2X is built on an underlying infrastructure of secure, reliable, two-way authenticated messages among vehicles and its surroundings. Within this V2X environment, vehicles, roadside equipment, and mobile devices cooperatively exchange messages and generate data that allows them to inform users about driving, mobility, and environment conditions around them.

To ensure passenger safety and data privacy at all times, V2X relies on a security infrastructure which guarantees trustworthiness and authenticity of transmitted messages and data.

To enable trustworthy communication, V2X systems rely on an advanced Public Key Infrastructure (PKI)-based approach which requires use of digital signatures and certificates, as well as secure 5G communication necessitating the use of HSMs for this purpose.
