Automotive security with SAE/ISO 21434

Integrate professional security services with the enablement of your security teams to address secure development future with SAE/ISO 21434.

UNECE, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, published two regulations concerning vehicle cybersecurity (R155) and software updates (R156). While SAE/ISO 21434 standard is not specifically mandated by these regulations, it offers support for developing a solid Cyber Security Management System (CSMS), resulting in the secure development of automotive products. As secure products in the automotive market are slowly becoming a norm, fulfilling the requirements of this standard in the most efficient way will provide a competitive advantage in UNECE regulated market.

Riscure is recognized security analysis and testing laboratory with experience in the security of individual components (SOC, ECU microcontroller, mobile and server applications, etc.) as well as security-focused technologies (TEE/OS, communication protocols, secure boot, cryptographic functionality, and robustness of countermeasures). Riscure offers a variety of cyber security services that fulfill different security work products as defined in the SAE/ISO 21434 standard.
