2018 has been an eventful year for OnBoard Security® and the markets we serve. The year started with a bang when OnBoard Security was spun off from Security Innovation®, becoming an independent company with the mission to help Automotive and IoT manufacturers stay ahead of the curve in cyber security. As an independent company, we are better positioned to focus on filling critical cyber security gaps in our target markets.

Recently, our customer, Rivetz, announced their Dual Roots of Trust solution to protect private keys in a mobile phone, even if one of the systems is compromised. The Rivetz software generates and distributes the private key between the two roots – the Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) running in ARM TrustZone and the SIM card. This means that both roots would have to be compromised in order to get the user’s private key. Since the TEE is controlled by the phone manufacturer and the SIM is controlled by the mobile carrier, the user’s data is also protected from insider attacks or a vendor security breach.
OnBoard Security’s Chief Technology Officer, Dr. William Whyte, has been involved in Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications security for nearly 20 years. He is the editor of the IEEE 1609.2 security standard and has consulted for numerous automaker, the US Dept. of Transportation (DOT) and transportation organizations around the world. He is frequently asked to explain V2X security and give insights on potential vulnerabilities in the system.
