The solution lets people access assets and spaces simply by approaching them with an authorized mobile device, providing convenience and control while enabling exciting new business models.
Passive Keyless Access Technology enables to secure access to vehicles, buildings and other assets and spaces, using only an authorized smart device. In a world where physical keys and cards are increasingly being replaced by digital options, smartphones are emerging as the dominant platform to enable that.
A user enrolls their mobile phone or other device, and once approved, gets access based on proximity to the space or asset. No badges, codes, apps or remote controls are required. A user then approaches the asset, their device’s proximity is detected, permission / credentials are confirmed, and access is granted.
The diversity of use case is huge but the ones most interesting for use short and mid-term are smart building and automotive. Not only does this lead to increased convenience and security, it also empowers companies to introduce exciting new and disruptive business models.
The solution allows system managers to control who has vehicle access, and exactly when and for how long that access is granted. If authorized, a user can easily share temporary access to the vehicle with another party.
The solution is built on commonly available technologies like Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), secured by Kudelski IoT keySTREAM to ensure fine-grained access control.
Enabling people to use mobile phones as secure access passes to buildings, garages, events and other venues.
Enable secure shared vehicle access using "phone as key" at scale.
Encrypt individual print jobs are encrypted and can only be accede by authorized users.
The solution leverages the Kudelski IoT keySTREAM security stack to enable trusted access commands and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) multi-point proximity detection, which is common denominator technology available in all smart devices today. NFC cards and web portal-based access options are also available.
No need to pull out the phone from the pocket, the phone is automatically and securely identified
Manage who has access to the asset, when and for how long via trusted commands from keySTREAM
Localization via trilateration – BLE based – with several anchors for proximity detection
One user can share temporary access to its asset easily with trusted contacts
In addition to BLE proximity detection, NFC card and remote commands are available
Solution must work with majority of smart phones and smart devices. The solution is built on existing standards and supported by most mobile devices, and is managed and protected by Kudelski IoT keySTREAM to ensure robust security.
BLE proximity/time of flight are approximate and subject to attenuation and reflection.
BLE radio relay attacks are commonly known.
Ultra Wide Band is the ideal complement to BLE for the next generation of our Passive Keyless Access solution.
Very few smart devices are currently embedding it.
The Kudelski Passive Keyless Entry solution perfectly fits Canoo’s objectives and needs. Our disruptive, no-commitment subscription program – which involves sharing of vehicles by different users - requires a highly secure and flexible access solution and the Kudelski team has the experience and the skills required to support our needs.
COVID-19 highlighted the need for more touchless access to cars, buildings, elevators and other assets. We are very excited that Canoo has given us the opportunity to bring this solution to their innovative new vehicle membership service. Our combination of expertise in both security and access control gives our solution an unparalleled level of robustness while delivering on the promise of convenience and ease of use.
