Keyless Entry Systems
Modern locking systems, for example in the automotive sector, often support keyless opening with a keyless entry system. However, these solutions are not error-free. With hardware for just 35€, criminals can use relay attacks to steal cars, gain access to office buildings or make payments from your accounts in seconds. An attacker simply relays messages between the key and the car. 92% of all recovered cars were keyless models stolen by this method. To this day there is no solution on the market that solves this problem. PHYSEC GUARD is an innovative technology that can reliably detect relayed signals and uses artificial intelligence to detect whether the key holder or a thief is trying to open the vehicle.
Increasing number of attacks
Keyless entry systems are becoming increasingly popular. Manufacturers and customers primarily associate comfort, innovation and user-friendliness with the elimination of an additional key. However, opening the door without additional user interaction also attracts unwanted intruders. Radio signals can be easily transmitted, which leads to a rising number of thefts. Unfortunately, most security mechanisms are useless to prevent these relay attacks.
Attackers do not have to break the encryption of the keyless entry system, but simply forward the signal of the transmitter that enables entry. This can be done very easily with simple hardware and two attackers. Although this problem is well known, there are no viable solutions on the market yet.
