End-to-end security is enabled by NXP Secure Elements on both the mobile and car sides. Embedded Digital Key applets support ecosystem interoperability leveraging CCC’s standardization.

"Huf and NXP have been working together for years to develop industry-wide standards for communication between vehicles and smartphones," said Dr.
Secure digital key management is also the basis for enabling handsfree smart car access which will be defined in CCC Release 3. Therefore, NXP is set to combine its digital key solution with its automotive Bluetooth (BLE) for communication and its recently announced Ultra-Wideband (UWB) technology for precise and secure localization.
NXP expects great strides in convenience based on the digitalization of car access, made possible by secure and interoperable standards. The end-to-end security of NXP’s digital key solution links a range of devices with vehicles, helping to create secure connections for a smarter world.
