swIDch's Offline Dynamic Digital Key Solution

Sep 30 2020

Many automotive companies are actively exploring the possibility to use a smartphone to lock and unlock a vehicle, as well as starting the engine without a physical key. However, the existing implementations of the digital key seem to be inconvenient for the end-users due to limited connectivity.

swIDch's Offline Dynamic Digital Key Solution

The problem was found when our team tried a rental service using a digital car key solution. The rental company addresses its benefit as the digital key allows drivers to get the car key painlessly and get into the rental car to start their trip in a few seconds with just a few steps on a smartphone. However, unexpectedly the predicted few seconds resulted in two hours. The pick-up point was located in the underground car park where network signals are typically weak. The whole rental process which requires an active network connection was extremely challenging. 

swIDch's Dynamic Digital Key solution can bridge this connectivity gap. Our underlying technology, OTAC (One-Time Authentication code) allows drivers to access a vehicle in a networkless environment. Additionally, OTAC is designed to not only support a comprehensive level of security with Multi Factor Authentication, but also to secure Bluetooth with Dynamic Authentication Mechanism to prevent hacking key threats. OTAC is fully compliant with Secure Element capabilities and a Trusted Algorithm to host in Trusted Execution Environment (TEE).

No matter where the driver or car is located, there are no obstacles for drivers activating the digital key. The ultimate and secure keyless access is available with swIDch. For more information, please contact us.
