Gemalto and Valeo partner to turn your smartphone into a secure car key

September 2016 by Emmanuelle Lamandé

Valeo has partnered with Gemalto to ensure the security of its virtual car key system called Valeo InBlue®. With Valeo InBlue®, drivers can use their smartphone or connected watch to lock, unlock and start their car, control applications and remotely access useful vehicle data using Bluetooth®.

This innovation is based on an on-board equipment, connected to a Smartphone Development Kit (SDK) hosting a secured virtual car key provided by the Valeo cloud-based platform.

Valeo InBlue® leverages the Gemalto Allynis Trusted Services Hub (TSH) solution providing secure Over-The-Air (OTA) deployment and lifecycle management of applications and sensitive credentials for vehicles. Thanks to Gemalto security solutions, virtual car keys are securely sent to smartphones and stored with a high level of security.

Valeo InBlue® is compatible with Android or iOS based smartphones on any mobile network.

With Valeo InBlue®, authorized users can remotely register new connected devices for use with a vehicle and receive vehicle information such as car location and fuel level, enabling car sharing and simplified rentals.
