• QNX/Certicom Join For Auto Software Security



    You might remember the QNX enabled car news from January of last year? Well, it's no suprise that when QNX is involved, security is at the forefront. This rings true for today's news from BlackBerry that QNX and Certicom are joining forces to offer software security for QNX cars of the future! THE FUTURE.

    “QNX Software Systems and Certicom have collaborated successfully to secure high-volume telematics systems and now, we are bringing our combined expertise to a wider range of customers who are building on-board electronic devices, including those that run other operating systems,” said Jim Alfred, vice president, BlackBerry Technology Solutions, Certicom. “Using our capabilities in concert provides manufacturers with a security framework they can leverage across the entire vehicle. Connected cars require faster development cycles, with security that is designed in from the start — not added as an afterthought. Our products offer a proven platform for achieving this.”

    “Our collaboration with Certicom addresses a critical need for security expressed by automakers and their suppliers, particularly as vehicles become more connected and autonomous,” said Andrew Poliak, director of business development, QNX Software Systems. “The government-approved, multi-platform security of Certicom’s technologies complements the inherent security capabilities of QNX® OS technology, which include a highly resilient microkernel architecture and fine-grained control of system privilege levels. Together, we are working to enable the comprehensive security needed for the reliable operation and mass adoption of the connected car.”
    Sounds like a plan! Now about flying cars...
