CONTEXT: The mass-adoption of electric vehicles is powered by the new generation of batteries, which enable to drive longer distances and reduce the infamous “range anxiety”. However, the market is flooded with fake or counterfeit batteries from China.

STATUS QUO

Crypto software is used to provide the/a battery with a unique digital identity and to protect it from tampering. The key is held “on the bus”.
 

LIMITATIONS

Vulnerable to cyberattacks by hackers whereby both the device and the data generated by the connected device can be compromised.

 

RIDDLE&CODE SOLUTION

Embed RIDDLE&CODE crypto hardware into the battery. A secure element in combination with a NFC transponder and a I2C industrial bus. The hardware stores the key ‘off the bus’, not revealing it to anyone.

BENEFITS

Battery identity: securely connecting a tamper-proof battery to the blockchain, generates a superior unique digital identity.

INTEGRITY OF THE WHOLE PROCESS:

By ensuring the integrity of components translates into trust and transparency for all stakeholders: accurate reliable data is generated and securely stored on immutable databases.

STATUS QUO

• Vehicle components act as isolated elements
• Data generated by each component is stored on separate centralized databases with no real-time interaction between the databases

LIMITATIONS

• A driver might use counterfeit components and still access all functions of the vehicle
• Centralized databases are exposed to network failures, to hacking attacks and are costly to protect

RIDDLE&CODE SOLUTION

Link identities of all components and services to the blockchain and regulate their interactions via smart contracts.

 

BENEFITS

Car components authentication in the blockchain creates business rules dependencies in terms of cloud services.

INTEGRITY OF THE WHOLE PROCESS:

By ensuring the integrity of components translates into trust and transparency for all stakeholders: accurate reliable data is generated and securely stored on immutable databases.

At manufacturing point, the crypto hardware gets physically connected via I2C to the battery. Immediately after, it gets provisioned* and attested** on the blockchain with relevant metadata.

Electric vehicles batteries have a limited lifetime, after which they lose capacity and must be replaced. Before installation, the authenticity of the new battery can be verified just by using a NFC-enabled smartphone.

Access to cloud services offered by the vehicle, is subject to linking all components authentication on the blockchain and relevant smart contracts.

 *Process by which the key pairs are created. **Process by which the public key of the crypto tag is registered on the blockchain of choice.
