ISO 21434 Certification | Automotive Cybersecurity Training

ISO 21434 “Road vehicles — cybersecurity engineering” specifies engineering requirements for cybersecurity risk management regarding concept, product development, production, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of electrical and electronic (E/E) systems in road vehicles, including their components and interfaces.

The ISO 21434 automotive standard is important because it covers all stages of a vehicle’s lifecycle — from design through decommissioning, by the application of cybersecurity engineering.

ISO 21434 applies to all electronic systems, components, and software in the vehicle, plus any external connectivity.

What’s more, the standard provides developers with a comprehensive approach to implementing security safeguards that span the entire supplier chain.

ISO 21434 is needed because with the increase in connectivity in vehicles — such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth — and the development of autonomous cars, the risks of cyber-attack and subsequent damage also increase.

Most experts in this field believe that there has been insufficient safety-critical standards to cover this type of risk and therefore new guidelines and standards were needed to be established.

The intent behind the standard is to provide a structured process to ensure that cybersecurity considerations are incorporated into automotive products throughout their lifetime.

The standard requires automotive manufacturers and suppliers to demonstrate due diligence in the implementation of cybersecurity engineering and that cybersecurity management is applied throughout the supply chain to support it.

It intends that organizations will encourage a cybersecurity culture so that everything is designed with security considerations from the start.

The White House has long been a proponent of ISO 21434 contending that cybersecurity should be at the forefront of all automotive design decisions including the selection of the programming language to be used for software development.

Manufacturers, developers, suppliers and organizations need to consider several points in a security risk assessment, such as:

  • Identification of assets and potential damage resulting from a breach of security features
  • Identification and analysis of possible threats, attacks and vulnerabilities
  • Determination of risk levels based on damage scenarios and the probability of successful attacks
  • Take countermeasures until the remaining risk is acceptable
  • Documentation of the important steps and results of the risk assessment process, such as asset lists, damage scenarios, attack reports or risk reports

The new ISO/SAE 21434 safeguards the entire development process and lifecycle of a road vehicle and promotes “security by design.”
