China Automotive Cybersecurity Hardware Research Report 2022: OEMs Generally Adopt the Security Chip + HSM Strategy to Build their Cybersecurity Protection System –

DUBLIN–()–The “China Automotive Cybersecurity Hardware Research Report, 2022” report has been added to’s offering.

Security chip and HSM that meet the national encryption standards will build the automotive cybersecurity hardware foundation for China.

OEMs generally adopt the security chip + HSM strategy to build their cybersecurity protection system.

At the core of cybersecurity hardware are security chip and hardware security module (HSM).

Security chip, or secure element (SE), is an integrated circuit that integrates cryptographic algorithms and features physical attack prevention design.

Hardware security module (HSM) is a computer device used to protect and manage the keys and sensitive data applied by the strong authentication system, and also provide related cryptographic operations. It is the basic support for automotive security solutions.

At present, most OEMs employ the security chip + HSM strategy to build an automotive cybersecurity protection system.

For example, in its automotive cybersecurity security system, NIO uses security chips and HSM to reinforce hardware and networks; in terms of secure communication, the HSM and certificate system featuring integrity, encryption, pseudonymization and anonymity is the basis for enabling data privacy protection. In addition, bug fixes over the air (OTA) are available in the case of emergency.

GAC completes the hardware security design and creates the four systems of border protection, automotive security, PKI certification & transmission, and security services, using security chip (SE) + HSM, and secure boot, trusted zone and encryption technologies. And at the vehicle end, GAC conducts in-depth research on vehicle inside and outside multi-node security protections, such as Linux OS for T BOX 4G module, Android OS for vehicle head unit, QNX OS for gateway and MCU, and communication interaction, aiming to establish an in-depth protection system for in-vehicle security.

Homemade SE chips are mass-produced and applied in vehicles.
