The Future of Vehicle Access

CCC Digital Key is a standardized ecosystem that enables mobile devices to store, authenticate, and share Digital Keys for vehicles in a secure, privacy-preserving way that works everywhere, even when the smartphone’s battery is low.

CCC Digital Key allows consumers to easily and confidently use their mobile devices to access vehicles. Along with robust capability and convenience, it offers enhanced security and privacy protections. CCC Digital Key aims to complement traditional methods, while being robust enough to fully replace them. 

Our mobile devices play an important role in our lives, enabling us to consolidate information and tools supporting nearly all of our daily activities into a single device.

We expect the performance and capability of our smartphones to continuously improve in response to our growing demands, and we expect them to secure our information and protect our privacy with growing rigor. We have been able to use our smartphones to access our vehicles for some time now, using mobile apps provided by vehicle manufacturers and rental companies; however, these apps use different, non-interoperable approaches with varying degrees of convenience, security, and privacy protection.

What’s missing is a worldwide standard that enables our mobile devices to be used as keys for our vehicles. CCC Digital Key closes this gap.
