Product: OTA Solution that supports one-vehicle, one-key upgrade package encryption and decryption
Encrypt each vehicle with a different key by extracting a small portion of the data from the upgrade package file. For most of the remaining data, all cars are encrypted with the same key as before. In this way, for each vehicle, the encrypted upgrade package is still different, which better solves the problems existing in the current solution.

By upgrading the file segmentation processing, the high-security requirement of one-vehicle, one-key is met, and the storage pressure on the server-side is reduced at the same time.
OTA has become one of the most important symbols of the current smart car, and the upgrade scope gradually covers the functions of all parts of the car. Therefore, OTA upgrades will become the norm. The industry also attaches great importance to the safety of automotive FOTA functions.
With the advent of the era of automobile intelligence, the emphasis on OTA security will be greatly increased. At present, the conventional solutions in the industry still have defects: vehicles with the same upgrade package have the same encryption key, so as long as one vehicle is cracked, other vehicles will also be seriously threatened. Desay SV’s OTA solution can solve this problem very well.
Product: Beanpod Zero Trust In-Vehicle Security Solution (ZT-V)
ZT-V is a security product based on the idea of zero trust for vehicles and solving the security risks of SOA open architecture. The idea of zero trust is continuous verification, never trust.

Establish a security protection system based on the vehicle SOA architecture to meet compliance.
Vehicles are becoming more and more intelligent, information and communication technologies oriented. Car hacking has proven to be a real threat. At the same time, the demand for software-defined vehicles is a trend. The risk is uncontrollable based on the open platform of the SOA. While the risks of SOA applications are magnified, the SOA service resources, system resources, data resources and other vehicle security issues are becoming more and more serious. Therefore, it is imperative to establish a security protection system of the SOA open platform to protect the security assets in the vehicle.
