What Is CUBE Intelligence Automotive Cyber Security?
Cube is a blockchain based network security company that connects car and autonomous vehicle security and information with blockchain technology. The platform recognizes the fact that from the year 2020, all cars will be manufactured with in-built CDMA. This means that the connected cars will be more vulnerable to cyber-attacks similar to what PCs connected to a particular network face.
The increased vulnerability will be due to the increased reliance of the car on wireless communication techniques such as vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicle to network (V2N), vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I), vehicle to device (V2D communication.
Therefore, Cube is aligning its resources to prepare for such scenarios and guarantee a secure automotive network using Deep Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Endpoint encryption, Quantum hash encryption, and cloud-based intelligence.
Challenges Cube Seeks To Address
Centralization in the automotive technology is problematic due to the size of the driving data received daily. A centralized system is more susceptible to lower speeds and system failure in case the number of cars increases.
Additionally, centralization means that if anyone accesses the central servers of the technology they can acquire the private information of the drivers such as their personal identification and their driving records.
The current systems cannot prevent malicious attacks on a particular car’s network, as it is inefficient in handling blockchain technology.
Cube’s Security Blocks
The Cube network comprises three main security blocks that enable the platform to achieve its objectives. They include:
Despite the simplicity and security of the current blockchain technology, it still has its drawbacks such as its limitations when transferring large files and its low scalability and speeds. The Cube blockchain will provide a solution to this problem by implementing a peer-to-peer hypermedia protocol and asymmetric encryption to combine the benefits of the conventional blockchain technology and that of its blockchain to offer rapid data transfers.
CubeBox Endpoint Security Technology
This unique technology will protect the multilateral communications that connected cars have and prevent any known attacks to the cars. The technology is lightweight and has one of the fastest processing speeds compared to similar products in the market.
Cloud Check Box Technology
This technology is useful in distinguishing unknown attacks through the cloud malware database known as the Check Box that receives all the files that appear suspicious and believed to be dangerous. If the attack remains unidentified in the Check Box, the system forwards it to the Sandbox where they will undergo analysis and the results obtained will be uploaded to the databases and shared with all the vehicles.
How Cube Blockchain & Token Analysis Works
Using CubeBox, anyone can produce data by connecting the Cube device into their car. They can they can then forward the data to the Cube ecosystem where they can access automobile data sale services provided by Cube.
The cube ecosystem has data providers and data consumers. The Data providers are the drivers who generate necessary data as they drive which could include driving records, vehicle condition or fuel consumption.
Data consumers who could be automobile companies, insurance companies, traffic information providers can then purchase the information from the individual data providers using CUBE tokens. The tokens act as link between information generated by the car and the consumers of the information. The generated information is then uploaded to the blockchain for secure storage.
Apart from receiving tokens, data providers will benefit from generating data since they will have access to the services offered by data consumers such as “Over the Air”(OTA) autonomous car security, and mileage insurance services. Similarly, data consumers can earn CUBE tokens by providing their services to data providers.
Cube will build an automotive blockchain mainnet in two steps. The first step will be Over-the-Air (OTA), which is a technology that automatically updates the software of a car. The second step will involve development of an autonomous car's security platform. The security platform with implement deep learning technology to ensure that information uploaded to the Cube network is confirmed in the shortest time possible.
Cube will secure blockchain data with single-signature and multi-signature methodologies whereby the importance of information will determine how and when the vehicle will receive the information. If the information is crucial it will require multi-signature methods while less crucial information might only require a single-signature method.
CUBE Intelligence Automotive Cyber Security Benefits
Remote Automotive Software Ppgrade
The platform’s blockchain based OTA technology can provide users with remote diagnostics of software issues and remotely install software upgrades to fix the bugs that it might have.
Cube will provide connected cars with high levels of security while utilizing blockchain technology and endpoint and cloud checkbox technology to optimize the car.
Cube utilizes the public blockchain and its own private blockchain making it a versatile hybrid blockchain, which is useful in all areas of autonomous cars.
