Toyota Motor Europe Delivers ‘Connected Car’
Experience with ForgeRock OpenAM
Satellite navigation systems, smart phones, applications, and online services are rapidly
improving the everyday driving experience by transforming cars into sophisticated
information hubs. The days of paper maps, guide books, and unexpected road work have
been replaced by specialized telematics systems that deliver infotainment, navigation, and
personalized information in real-time.
Toyota Motor Europe is at the forefront of this driver information revolution—developing state-of-the-art telematics services that
connect the vehicle’s built-in Toyota Touch 2 with Go navigation system to the power of the Internet. With Toyota Touch 2 with
Go, customers can safely access a host of services while en route to help them find the nearest, cheapest, and most convenient
place to fill up; search and map a recommended restaurant; use Google Panoramio and Google Street View to discover a new
city and its points of interest; find a parking spot; check the weather; and get real-time traffic information with warnings about
blocked roads or heavy traffic—while the system automatically reroutes.

Two-Factor Authentication: The
Internet of Things in Action
Key to Toyota’s integrated service offering is OpenAM’s flexible
and secure two-factor authentication feature, which enables
the company to deliver a seamless and secure authentication
experience through the customer portal and in the car. The
result is a simple, user-friendly, secure access solution.

Customers first register and authenticate at the “My Toyota” Customer Portal to activate and
manage services they want to access in their cars. Once in their cars, customers authenticate
by logging into their Toyota Touch 2 with Go device using the same username and password
they set up for the customer portal. For added security, ForgeRock OpenAM enables a
second authentication factor via the device. Once the user has logged in, the vehicle’s
Touch 2 with Go device automatically authenticates to the services platform using a dynamic
token key. The secondary authentication happens automatically so the user doesn’t need to
remember an additional code or enter a token password.
