A Security Module for Car Appliances

Authors: Bo-Chiuan Chen, Pang-Chieh Wang, Ting-Wei Hou, Jung-Hsuan Wu


In this paper we discuss on the security module for the car appliances to prevent stealing and illegal use on other cars. We proposed an open structure including authentication and encryption by embed a security module in each to protect car appliances. Illegal moving and use a car appliance with the security module without permission will lead the appliance to useless. This paper also presents the component identification and deal with relevant procedures. It is at low cost to recover from destroys by the burglar. Expect this paper to offer the new business opportunity to the automotive and technology industry.

Keywords: Automotive, Key Management, component identification, electronic immobilizer
