Integrate framework – lock out hackersA Software Development Kit (SDK) like our Trusted Application Kit (T.A.K) holds a collection of security features that every app needs. Developers of a mobile car key app can integrate the SDK without much effort and in a short time. This ensures that the secret keys in the mobile app are not accessible to unauthorized persons using cryptographic technology. Due to the secure storage of the keys in the smartphone, there is the additional advantage that no network signal is required to access the car. Even if it was parked in an underground garage where the connection is insufficient, the vehicle can be opened without any problems. Furthermore, the integration of our T.A.K allows several people to access the digital key without compromising security. To ensure that hackers have no chance of accessing the mobile car key, the SDK is made available to developers and providers as a library with code obfuscation, which makes decryption much more difficult. In addition, the app protection uses a secure communication channel between the client and the cloud and provides each app, including the digital car key, with its own secure communication channel. The secure communication channel to the server prevents data traffic analysis (network sniffing). Therefore, the T.A.K should be integrated into the app at the beginning of the development so that it can respond directly to threats later during execution. The integrated Trusted Application Kit can, for example, detect whether the mobile car key is being executed on an original device or a rooted device. Beyond that, the digital car key can be declared inactive via the T.A.K cloud.
Advantages for the users
