Troubleshooting the hackability of Quantum computer powered cars

Who knew that electronic voice data could be hijacked and harvested as we drive our citieis going about our personal lives or on the go for work.   What if the vehicle you drive and are moving includes sensitive merchandise?

As vehicles are designed to update software regularly and communicate over the air, the development of quantum computers during the next decade threatens to make them vulnerable to hackers.  Quantum computers operate differently than digital computers and will be capable of breaking traditional encryption algorithms that keep data secure.

“As cars become ever smarter and more connected, data security is an integral component of driver safety,” said ISARA CEO and Co-founder Scott Totzke. “Automakers must begin preparing their quantum-safe migration plans now to ensure that the promise of technological advances like self-driving vehicles can be realized with confidence. Cars in development today will be on the road well into the timeframe that we expect a practical, operational quantum computer. Tools exist today to ensure that tomorrow’s cars remain safe and secure.”

For the luxury electric Karma Revero GT demonstration car, commercially released products including the ISARA Catalyst™ TLS Testbed were used to create a secure connection using hybrid cryptography that combines ECDH and Kyber for key establishment and Dilithium for authentication – all algorithms implemented in the commercially available ISARA Radiate™ Quantum-safe Toolkit.  This was integrated into iNAGO’s netpeople driver assistant to make the car’s connection to the cloud quantum-safe.

“iNAGO’s netpeople assistant platform helps automotive companies deliver connected content and services that are unique to the car and personalized to each driver, so a lot of personal information travels across our networks that we need to keep private for drivers and for auto makers,” said Ron DiCarlantonio, iNAGO founder and CEO. “ISARA’s tools were vital to creating a secure environment that didn’t slow down data transfer to create a seamless experience that users can enjoy with confidence.”

APMA vice president of Innovation Warren Ali added,  “Among the many concepts proven out in this year’s car, ISARA’s quantum-safe algorithms and protocols for secure communications demonstrate that it’s not too early to begin preparing – and that the tools are available today to harden virtually any system from the threat of quantum computing.”
