AUTOCRYPT recently announced the launch of AutoCrypt SCMS Version 5.0, a Security Credential Management System (SCMS) for Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications, and a crucial component of its AutoCrypt V2X security solution. An SCMS is essential for autonomous driving as it signs and verifies the messages transmitted via V2X to ensure security and safety.
Utilizing a public key infrastructure (PKI) to encrypt, validate, and manage certificates for V2X communications, the newest version of AutoCrypt SCMS, Version 5.0, comes with newly added Certificate Revocation List (CRL) and Misbehavior Detection (MBD) functionalities. Based on the IEEE 1609.2 standard, the CRL supports both hash-based CRL, which lists the hash value of revoked certificates; and full linkage ID-based CRL, which allows for more efficient mass revocation.
AutoCrypt SCMS securely manages the entire lifecycle of a certificate and is updated regularly to comply with stringent regulations from various regions. While many security providers only provide compliance in one or two regions, AUTOCRYPT’s research and development team have secured compliance with all existing standards regarding certificate management, including the US SCMS, European-based C-ITS CMS (CCMS), and Chinese-based C-SCMS.
