Ford Trucks, Irdeto announce cybersecurity partnership

Irdeto will provide Ford Trucks with a fully managed key lifecycle management service.

Ford Trucks partnered with Irdeto, a digital cybersecurity platform, to improve the cybersecurity framework of its trucks and components. Ford says this partnership will enable it to offload complex management of cryptographic keys and software signing services.

Irdeto will provide Ford Trucks with a fully managed key lifecycle management service that is ISO 27001 certified. Ford Trucks says this customizable service is designed to meet the needs of its product lines and Electronic Control Units (ECUs).

Ford Trucks says this the collaboration comes at a good time, considering the increasing cybersecurity requirements mandated by the UNECE R-155 regulation for automotive OEMs, which entered into force from January 2021. Irdeto’s solution not only addresses these regulatory demands, according to Ford Trucks, but also provides the flexibility to adapt to evolving cybersecurity landscapes without the need for significant upfront investments in security infrastructure.

Irdeto’s Keys & Credentials service is a security solution that manages the entire lifecycle of trusted identities, and secured firmware for connected devices, ensuring each vehicle is authenticated and safeguarded against potential cyber threats. Key benefits of Irdeto’s service, according to Ford Trucks, include security, compliance with emerging regulations, long-term recoverability, comprehensive lifecycle management and flexible customization options.
