Leading Japanese Developer of Keyless Car Apps Deploys Verimatrix Cybersecurity

DNP’s Digital Key Platform Integrates Verimatrix Whitebox Cryptography to keep data, systems and drivers safe from cyberattacks


Verimatrix, (Paris:VMX) (Euronext Paris: VMX), the leader in powering the modern connected world with people-centered security, today announced that Tokyo-based DNP (TYO: 7912) integrated Verimatrix cybersecurity technology inside its Digital Key Platform for car manufacturers and their associated keyless apps.

Looking to create a foundational level of security and trust between a vehicle, its owner and mobile app, DNP’s secure SDK for customers and partners integrated Verimatrix Whitebox solution to minimize any potential entry points for cybercriminals. Through automated and self-defending security that’s injected directly into apps, Verimatrix arms the 145 year-old company with proven and trusted technology that helps prevent hackers from successfully analyzing and modifying code.

A spokesperson for the IoT Security Department of DNP provided the following comments: “Through an extensive evaluation process, we determined that Verimatrix Whitebox provides us with the most advanced security and most flexible solution for the protection of our secure SDK’s for keyless car apps. Verimatrix has actively and flexibly supported our project and extensive requirements through the entire process and we’re pleased with their ongoing support during our rollout with our partners.”

Verimatrix’s Whitebox effectively dissolves cryptographic keys into the code itself and obscures algorithms to keep critical applications and data safe – even if a hacker has complete access to the device on which the algorithms are executing. Whitebox also provides DNP with:

  • Strong protection for cryptographic keys
  • Graphical design of their implementation via a GUI tool
  • Local creation of their own secure keys
  • Compliance with stringent code size, performance and security requirements

“It’s an especially crucial need for apps connected to something as integral as a car to be hardened and secured,” said Asaf Ashkenazi, Chief Operating Officer at Verimatrix. “Whitebox’s lengthy track record of success provides confidence for organizations such as DNP that must meet stringent automaker requirements. DNP’s deployment is one of the latest examples of Verimatrix’s increased presence inside the latest innovations spawned by today’s ultra-connected world. We’re pleased to stand as a forward-thinking leader in efficient, proven cybersecurity technology.”
