Autonomous Car Security Platform

CUBE is an autonomous car security platform backed by blockchain technology

Autonomous cars rely heavily on wireless communication channels like vehicle-to-vehicle interaction, navigation route information, GPS, and other driving data. Autonomous cars continuously communicate with their environment so accessing these different channels can increase the risk of malicious attacks on the vehicles. Cube protects autonomous vehicles’ security with blockchain technology, more specifically, an AI-based deep learning and quantum hash cryptography. The $770 billion autonomous automotive industry will see Cube as the first user of blockchain-based security.

One of blockchains biggest advantages is its security. CUBE uses blockchain technology to ensure the security of autonomous mobile networks.

Autonomous vehicles require information from a range of different IOT devices in order to operate. Attackers try to sneak in and gain access to the network in the gaps between the car, IoT device, and traffic center. In such instances, the hash of the infected binary differs from the hash included in the multisig transaction which is signed by the SW provider and the OEM. Thus, the vehicles can readily detect such an attack before installing the infected SW update. Distribution of a false update by claiming to be the OEM or SW update provider could be ceased since the overlay nodes are aware of the Public Key of the OEM and the SW update provider. Therefore, the attacker cannot claim to be either of these entities as it requires the private key associated with the Public Key of the relevant entities.

AI Deep - Learning

We plan to apply the AI learning layer of Cube sometime in 2019, with full commercialisation by 2020. Currently,, network security is a passive system that collects patches to prevent the reuse of methods used in previous hacking attempts.

Cube will train, in supervisor mode, using the past as a foundation to construct a defense system against future attacks. It does this by creating malicious attack scenarios and runs through them hundreds of millions of times. Cube’s intrusion detection system, using deep neural networks for vehicle network security, has two parts: A discriminative deep architecture and a generative deep architecture, depending on how the architectures are exploited. After the pre-training phase is complete, fine-tuning will be performed using the gradient descent method with supervised learning. While blockchain is used as the first and main security method, AI deep learning-based security will guarantee the double defense system.

Quantum Hashing Cryptography

Cube's quantum hash technology will provide an important opportunity to ensure a high level of security throughout the blockchain field using simple hash technology. Cube increases the level of security by using continuously changing quantum characteristics, The characteristics that the data receive depend on the angle of polarization; further, the characteristics of the data are destroyed at the moment of a malicious attack.

CUBE Technology Market Application Plan Blockchain has improved security by using hashes appropriately. However, there is a growing concern that as the performance of computers grows rapidly, hash cryptography can become a limitation. Cube develops quantum cryptography to prevent malicious attacks against autonomous vehicles. This Quantum Cryptography will contribute not only to the autonomous drive, but also to the overall upgrade of the entire Blockchain technology. This Quantum Hashing Cryptography Layer will be applied from 2022

CUBE Technology Market Application Plan

Over The Air (OTA) Market (eta 2018)

OTA technology can remotely upgrade existing automotive software, improve performance and patch bugs as they appear and keeps cars on the road by keeping them updated at all times. CUBE will provide software diagnostics and install bug patches remotely with OTA technology based on the blockchain.

Autonomous Vehicle Security Platform (2019)

We have plans to make anonymous autonomous vehicle data available for purchase sometime in 2019. Our two major sales models are: 1. Autonomous car security platform (licensed to car companies) 2. The sale of drivers’ anonymous data

Cube Token Flow

Data Providers

The CUBE token links driving-related information from the car to data consumers who need this information. The owners of the car generate the driving information while driving the car, receiving CUBE tokens in return. CUBE digitizes this information and links it into a blockchain. Data providers can receive the various services, such as “Over the Air” (OTA) services, autonomous car security services, and mileage insurance services from data consumers.

Data Consumers

Data consumers who need this information will provide the services in exchange of Cube tokens. When an automobile generates information, all nodes send, utilize, and receive it. Automobiles exchange their data as nodes, and the data consumers who need this information provide various services with receiving tokens. Data consumers can also provide the OTA services, or autonomous car driving support information to the data providers. This circulation is a key principle of the CUBE token. CUBE is not a simple cryptocurrency. CUBE is a leading technology that applies blockchain to advance data security and sharing in a real world situation.

Cube Token Usage Plan

  1. CUBE token owners can receive services at a CUBE affiliates.
  2. These affiliates can be gas stations, car dealers, repair shops, insurance companies, etc., and can provide services such as gasoline discount, vehicle maintenance, vehicle purchase discount, insurance discount, and cash back service.
  3. Information consumers such as automobile companies, insurance companies, traffic information providers can pay cube to individuals and purchase driving related data.
  4. CUBE token owners can become information producers by installing CUBE OTA. Driving information is big data which includes driving records, vehicle condition, fuel consumption and so on.

              • What is CUBE?

                CUBE is a British corporation that produces security platform for autonomous vehicles based on blockchain technology. Autonomous cars continuously communicate with various sites to remotely monitor their internal and outside states. These various network accesses increase the risk of malicious attacks on autonomous vehicles. Cube solves the problem of these autonomous vehicles’ security by using blockchain technologies, AI-based deep learning and quantum hash cryptography.

              • Where and how can I use the CUBE token?

                CUBE token owner can use CUBE token for the payment of gas station, purchasing new car or used car, garage payment, tire exchange, or carsharing payment. CUBE token can be cashed in token exchange market also.

              • How can I get my questions answered by the CUBE team?

                Please contact for additional information or questions. Then CUBE team will be with you as soon as possible.

              • How does autonomous vehicle security system work with blockchain?

                In the operation of autonomous vehicles, many IOTs provide information to autonomous vehicles. The attacker seeks to gain access to the network between an autonomous car and IoT or traffic center. In such instances, the hash of the infected binary differs from the hash included in the multisig transaction which is signed by the SW provider and the OEM. Thus, the vehicles can readily detect such an attack before installing the infected SW update. Distribution of a false update by claiming to be the OEM or SW update provider could be ceased since the overlay nodes are aware of the Public Key of the OEM and the SW update provider. Therefore, the attacker cannot claim to be either of these entities as it requires the private key associated with the Public Key of the relevant entities.
