World’s First Quantum-Safe Connected Car Secured by ISARA
(BusinessWire) Technology from ISARA Corporation, the world’s leading provider of quantum-safe and crypto-agile security, ensured that the Karma Revero GT demonstration car at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) can send and receive electronic voice data without fear that the information will be hijacked or harvested – even by a quantum-enabled adversary.
“As cars become ever smarter and more connected, data security is an integral component of driver safety,” said ISARA CEO and Co-founder Scott Totzke. “Automakers must begin preparing their quantum-safe migration plans now to ensure that the promise of technological advances like self-driving vehicles can be realized with confidence. Cars in development today will be on the road well into the timeframe that we expect a practical, operational quantum computer. Tools exist today to ensure that tomorrow’s cars remain safe and secure.”
For the luxury electric Karma Revero GT demonstration car, commercially released products including the ISARA Catalyst™ TLS Testbed were used to create a secure connection using hybrid cryptography that combines ECDH and Kyber for key establishment and Dilithium for authentication – all algorithms implemented in the commercially available ISARA Radiate™ Quantum-safe Toolkit. This was integrated into iNAGO’s netpeople driver assistant to make the car’s connection to the cloud quantum-safe.
