"The future of cities is connected, and smart roads are the starting point for integrating more data-driven operations into city planning. Automated data exchange between cars, roads, infrastructure, and pedestrians is gradually becoming the transportation status quo. Our mission is to ensure that all smart road communication takes place in a secure environment, without compromising performance and usability. The AMO team is unrivaled in terms of expertise in connected transportation systems security, and they have been able to scale and adjust their solutions to meet our demands for every environment."
Security Manager, Smart Road Testing
The team behind AMO started developing Korea’s first smart car solution in 2007 as an on-demand security solution for auto part and car manufacturers. Since then, the project has expanded to address vulnerabilities in every aspect of connected road infrastructure, including fleet management, mobile telematics, vehicle data monitoring, and highway systems. The solution was officially launched as AutoCrypt® in 2015 by AMO’s parent company, Penta Security Systems. AutoCrypt® has been deployed in major Cooperative Intelligent Transportation System (C-ITS) testbeds across Korea, including K-City, in collaboration with the country’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport. Going forward, the robust technical foundation of AutoCrypt® will enable further expansion into holistic smart city security.
