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.
“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.”
