Transport Canada and ESCRYPT work together to advance the development of a Canadian security credential management system (SCMS) for connected vehicles.
The Canadian government is making concerted efforts today to develop an innovative and future-ready transportation infrastructure for tomorrow. To this end, ESCRYPT Waterloo and Transport Canada’s Advance Connectivity and Automation in the Transportation System (ACATS) program are helping Canadian jurisdictions prepare for the next generation of connected and automated vehicles.
Connected vehicles will improve the safety of road transportation by using vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology to communicate with smart infrastructure (e.g. traffic lights, signs, rail crossings) and other road users (e.g. pedestrians, cyclists). Initial applications include connected traffic signals that give priority to emergency response vehicles, real-time information about potential hazards such as slippery surfaces, accidents, or construction, and warnings to advise commercial truck drivers about cyclists, pedestrians, and motorcyclists.
ESCRYPT is uniquely positioned to support Transport Canada in defining the roadmap for connected vehicle security in Canada. Experts from ESCRYPT have helped develop connected vehicle standards in both Europe and North America, and their combination of product offerings for both in-vehicle security (CycurV2X-SDK) and back-end credential management (CycurV2X-SCMS) makes them the only partner needed to deliver a holistic solution for V2X security.
ESCRYPT is also proud to announce that CycurV2X-SDK, a complete in-vehicle V2X security toolkit, is now officially certified by Omniair, in collaboration with Canadian partner Intersect / Orange Traffic.
Come visit us at Booth 367 to see CycurV2X in action, and to learn how ESCRYPT can help secure your V2X solutions.
