Atos secures communications in connected vehicles

Lille (France), International Cybersecurity Forum, January 22, 2019 - Atos, a global leader in digital transformation, today announces the release of its new Horus security suite for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), a solution which provides security to communications in connected vehicles. 

As the world of connected transport continues to evolve, both car manufacturers and smart city services providers need scalable security solutions that can manage millions of connected objects and automotive sensors.

The Horus security suite for ITS, which is based on embedded security components (V2X-HSM) and Horus PKI electronic certificates, allows operators to:

  • Ensure the confidentiality and integrity of V2X (vehicle-to-everything) interactions;
  • Adapt their performance and generate electronic certificates according to requests;
  • Efficiently manage costs through a SaaS (Software-as-a-service) system and hybrid cloud architecture;
  • Effectively fight against cyber-attacks targeting Smart City services.

The Horus security suite can easily be integrated into an existing information system, such as a fleet management organization. It can also be integrated into a Security Operations Center (SOC) to identify abnormal behavior and implement the actions needed to protect smart city services.

"Vehicle security is the cornerstone of smart city services to improve road safety and traffic efficiency. The Horus security suite for ITS has been created to enable vehicles to securely communicate with their environment. The suite also allows organizations to easily manage their security costs, scale and performance in accordance with their market's needs," says David Leporini, Atos IoT Security Director.

Meet Atos IoT security experts at the International Cybersecurity Tradeshow (FIC) in Lille from 22 to 23 January on booth #E19.
