WISeKey’S AIoT SOLUTIONS OFFER THE BEST PROTECTION AGAINST CYBER ATTACKS ON CONNECTED CARS

Geneva, October 13, 2020 – WISeKey International Holding Ltd. (“WISeKey” NASDAQ: WKEY; SIX Swiss Exchange: WIHN), cybersecurity delivering AIoT Integrated Security Platforms, today announced that its cybersecurity offering (hardware and software platform) for connected cars addresses safety and security issues arising from system vulnerabilities. 

WISeKey entered the connected cars security segment in 2019 when Daimler AG started to use its technology to validate the authenticity of different vehicle components, protect onboard communication between vehicle components and provide over-the-air software updates. The automotive industry is facing a major cybersecurity challenge due to digitalization: Big Data coming from multiple connected sources in the car including its operating system is only getting larger and more complex, making it increasingly difficult for connected cars manufacturers to analyze and protect the connected car against cyber threats. The best way to cut through the data clutter and identify potential attacks is by leveraging AI for behavioral analysis of the data.

Additionally, WISeKey PKI’s authentication certificates are used by employees, dealers and suppliers to access car components to diagnose mechanical/technical issues and update software, from any location. The WISeKey PKI platform also allows users to securely interact with a car’s smart features using smartphones and other devices that includes the integration of WISeKey IoT and PKI with the manufacturer’s connected car solutions allowing them to authenticate legitimate car components and enable owners to securely interact with the car’s smart features.

“As the connected car industry continues to evolve, essentially becoming software on a metal shield, cars are vulnerable to the very same threats and attacks as home computers, laptops and smartphones.  Unless appropriate cybersecurity measures are implemented, hackers can remotely access the vehicle’s computer system, manipulate the brakes, engine, and transmission.  Our tamperproof

New Apple ‘iPhone 12’ to offer 5G speeds U.S. networks can’t deliver

By Supantha Mukherjee and Kenneth Li

(Reuters) – 5G will finally get its U.S. closeup with the expected debut of Apple Inc’s next iPhone on Tuesday. But the blazing speeds promised will not materialize for most people.

The device, dubbed the iPhone 12 by analysts, can tap into 5G, or fifth generation wireless technology, that theoretically operates as much as 10 to 20 times faster than current 4G wireless networks.

Using the next iPhone or any 5G enabled device on today’s network, however, will be “like having a Ferrari … but using it in your local village and you can’t drive to up to 200 miles per hour, simply because the roads cannot maintain those speeds,” explained Boris Metodiev, associate director of research firm Strategy Analytics.

Apple, which is expected to unveil the new phone at a virtual event on Tuesday, will need to walk a tightrope between enticing consumers to upgrade their phones while not over-promising what 5G can do today.

Current 5G U.S. networks mostly use low-band wireless spectrum, or airspace, that is slower than high-band spectrum, but more reliable over longer distances. It will likely take years before the massive speed boost phone carriers promise will make augmented reality and real-time cloud gaming seamless.

Several U.S. telecom operators have deployed networks based on lower spectrum bands, with slightly higher speeds than 4G. A noticeably faster variant of “mid-band” 5G is also being rolled out, but it is unlikely to reach three-quarters of Americans until 2025, estimated longtime Apple analyst Gene Munster of venture capitalist firm Loup Ventures.

The fastest speeds touted by carriers are a type of 5G called millimeter Wave, or mmWave, that work over shorter distances. Verizon Communications Inc has the largest current mmWave network, available only in limited areas.

Although Verizon 5G users could

Aquarium of Niagara to resume fall hours, offer modified programming

The aquarium will now be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will offer special family-friendly incentives on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. — Starting Tuesday, September 8 the Aquarium of Niagara will resume its fall hours.

The aquarium will now be open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will offer special family-friendly incentives on Wednesdays and Saturdays. 

Anyone who wears their school uniform, t-shirt or jersey on a Wednesday or Saturday during the month of September will receive a special gift. Families visiting the aquarium can also participate in a scavenger hunt.

“Families across Western New York can explore the aquarium as an outlet for some of the stressors brought on by implications of the pandemic,” said Executive Director Gary Siddall. “Visitors can experience the wonders of aquatic wildlife while adhering to enhanced safety protocols and guidelines.”

The aquarium says throughout the fall it plans on slowly reintroducing in-person experiences and programming with COVID-19 related modifications in place. The new modifications will ensure the safety of the animals, visitors and staff.

Starting September 12, the aquarium will resume its daily penguin and seal interaction programs. This allows guests to experience close-up encounters with aquarium animals; however, there will be no hands-on interaction with the animals. 

Participants looking to take part in the interaction programs are required to wear masks, maintain 6 feet of distance from the aquarium staff, and must be from the same household or party.

The aquarium is also offering its “animal tales” story time and ambassador animal meet-and-greet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month. It will be offered both in person and virtually at 3:30 p.m. Click here for more information.
