Device Attestation indicates that all parts and information must be authenticated at each access point and with each information exchange.
As digitization evolves, more connected and advanced automobiles are manufactured in production facilities with interconnected systems. This vast network of connections has increased not only innovation-led opportunities across the automobile industry but also has an impact on the expanding attack surfaces in connected automobiles.
As with any critical technology, the supply chain is a major concern. Security risks do not wait until the automobile is finished, they begin with the manufacturing of each individual part and device. Along with the production of parts and devices, interconnected manufacturing systems are the initial attack surfaces that require strong security.
Device Attestation enables securing the complete supply chain of automotive by providing unique digital identities to the parts, components, and manufacturing systems, allowing them to authenticate themselves wherever required.
