Car Connectivity Consortium launches certification program for NFC digital car key interoperability

28 decembrie 2023

The Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) has launched a CCC Digital Key Certification program designed to embody trust, interoperability and compatibility and show that certified products conform to global compatibility standards for NFC digital car keys.

“The certification is pivotal to instilling trust among consumers and the industry because CCC Digital Key provides a global standard for interoperability,” the consortium says.

“This enables auto and device manufacturers to deliver secure, user-friendly experiences for digital keys.”

Once CCC members have received certification for their NFC digital keys after testing at an authorised testing lab, they will be able to feature the CCC Digital Key mark on products, manuals, marketing materials and websites so that “when customers and partners see the certification logo they know they will get the CCC Digital Key experience that is trusted, interoperable and works as expected”, the consortium explains.

“The CCC Digital Key Certification is a critical piece we’ve needed for a universal standard to be possible,” says the consortium’s technical director Glen Stone.

“The certification not only bolsters a CCC Digital Key product as credible, but it also validates that the product will work seamlessly with other CCC Digital key solutions in the ecosystem.”

We’ve been looking forward to this moment, and we’re happy it’s come at last,” said Jaeyoung Shin, Head of Wallet R&D Group from Member company Samsung. “Smart devices such as the Samsung Galaxy smartphone will be more capable of offering a secure and seamless user experience. The ability for customers to conveniently access their cars is a great way for us to provide additional value to customers.”

The certification mark signals to consumers, partners, and stakeholders that the product meets industry and program standards for the best device-to-vehicle connectivity experience. Members can feature the CCC Digital Key mark on products, manuals, marketing materials, websites, and more.

Displaying the CCC Digital Key mark will be a game changer for automakers because it tells customers they can access their cars securely and seamlessly with their smart device by simply identifying the mark,” said Daniel Kuelzer, Function Owner Digital Key from Member company BMW.
