Molex Collaborates with BlackBerry on an Automotive Network for Secure and Intelligent Vehicles

 

BlackBerry is teaming up with Molex to collaborate on developing a 10 Gbps Ethernet automotive network for secure and intelligent vehicles.  This network is being designed to increase data bandwidth in intelligent connected vehicles. Molex and BlackBerry will be integrating very reliable high-speed data transmission, prioritization, scalability and BlackBerry’s advanced embedded security solutions.

“Secure high-bandwidth Ethernet represents the future of in-vehicle and V2X connectivity,” said Eric Scott, advanced technology manager and lead architect, Molex. “The industry-leading 10 Gbps Ethernet Automotive Network supports secure and reliable data transmission between multiple hardware and embedded software systems enabling end-to-end data integration and data prioritization for intelligent vehicles.”

This comprehensive platform will leverage the following BlackBerry technologies:

  • BlackBerry QNX Neutrino SDP 7.0 RTOS, which provides high performance and enhanced kernel-level security through an array of features including microkernel architecture, file encryption, adaptive time partitioning, a high-availability framework, anomaly detection, and multi-level policy-based access control.
  • BlackBerry Certicom’s Managed PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Service, to securely provision, authenticate, and communicate between modules and other vehicle ECUs and peripheral devices connected to the network. In-vehicle connections can be made via Ethernet IP-based devices or LIN, CAN, USB, and other supported legacy communication protocols. As part of the PKI, BlackBerry Certicom is providing an efficient and powerful Elliptic-Curve Cryptography (ECC) solution that can also be extended to communications between the vehicle systems and the cloud.

“Molex and BlackBerry believe that robust and secure high-speed Ethernet will become the fundamental automotive networking technology as we approach and enter the autonomous era,” said Jim Alfred, vice president and GM of BlackBerry Certicom. “BlackBerry’s embedded security solutions will ensure the growing amount of data collected and used in a car is trusted and secure.”

The new Molex network solution will be unveiled at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. This is another great collaboration for BlackBerry.  Check out the press release below for more details.

Industry leaders to debut secured 10 Gbps Ethernet platform at CES 2018

LISLE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Molex announced today it has teamed up with BlackBerry Limited (NYSE: BB; TSX: BB) on the development of a 10 Gbps Ethernet Automotive Networking platform designed to increase data bandwidth in intelligent connected vehicles. Integrating very reliable high-speed data transmission, prioritization, scalability, and BlackBerry’s advanced embedded security solutions, the new Molex network platform will be officially unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

“Secure high-bandwidth Ethernet represents the future of in-vehicle and V2X connectivity,” said Eric Scott, advanced technology manager and lead architect, Molex. “The industry-leading 10 Gbps Ethernet Automotive Network supports secure and reliable data transmission between multiple hardware and embedded software systems enabling end-to-end data integration and data prioritization for intelligent vehicles.”

Based on a future-ready, automotive-grade high-speed gateway, the powerful 10 Gbps Ethernet platform supports legacy and evolving media modules, peripherals, and other embedded software systems. This comprehensive platform leverages the following BlackBerry technologies:

  • BlackBerry QNX Neutrino SDP 7.0 RTOS, which provides high performance and enhanced kernel-level security through an array of features including microkernel architecture, file encryption, adaptive time partitioning, a high-availability framework, anomaly detection, and multi-level policy-based access control.
  • BlackBerry Certicom’s Managed PKI (Public Key Infrastructure) Service, to securely provision, authenticate, and communicate between modules and other vehicle ECUs and peripheral devices connected to the network.
