  • Patent number: 10701062
    Abstract: A method for improving information security for vehicle-to-X communication, wherein the vehicle-to-X communication is protectable by at least one certificate, wherein the certificate for protecting the vehicle-to-X communication has a validity period of defined length and is provided for storage in a memory of a vehicle, wherein the method is additionally distinguished in that the vehicle uses a communication link for wireless data interchange between the vehicle and a backend system, before expiry of the validity period of the certificate and a change to a validity period of defined length for an updated certificate, to ask the backend system to provide an up-to-date piece of time information for the vehicle. In addition, the invention relates to a corresponding communication apparatus for vehicle-to-X communication.

  • Patent number: 10680816
    Abstract: A system for improving the data security during a communication process, including at least one processor and a hardware security module. The communication data is authenticated prior to a transmission process, and the authenticity of the communication data is checked upon being received. The authentication is carried out by the processor, and the authentication check is carried out by the hardware security module, wherein the communication data is car-to-X messages. The processor and the hardware security module are linked via a common secret element such that at least the hardware security module cannot be coupled to another processor.

  • Publication number: 20180259651
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for assessing a position of a vehicle are described herein. The disclosure proposes ascertaining a first absolute position utilizing a conventional GNSS receiver. This is to be compared with a second absolute position, which is ascertained in a secure safety unit or a secure ASIL-compatible chip, and is therefore always plausible.
