White Paper: ISO/SAE 21434 FROM A SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT PERSPECTIVE

Software and connectivity have been the driving forces behind most of the major innovative trends in automotive systems over the last twenty years. Unfortunately, this increased dependence upon software and connectivity has made motor vehicles inviting targets for malicious software hackers. 

In response, the Society of Automotive Engineers and ISO have developed ISO/SAE 21434, a cybersecurity risk management standard for the automotive industry.

While an excellent cybersecurity framework, ISO/SAE 21434 is a top-level standard. The specifics of how to demonstrate compliance are largely left up to the software supplier.  Many automotive OEMs and suppliers are now struggling to define processes that will ensure their compliance with this new standard and the cybersecurity of their products.

TrustInSoft’s new white paper, ISO/SAE 21434 from a Software Development Perspective, examines the challenges facing automotive software developers as they try to meet their industry’s and customers’ new demands. It also offers solutions for eliminating the software coding errors that hackers most often exploit and for demonstrating compliance with this new standard’s requirements for the integration and verification of software.

ISO/SAE 21434 from a Software Development Perspective looks at the emerging trends that are rapidly expanding the attack surfaces of automobiles. It examines ISO/SAE 21434 and what it means for software development organizations. It dissects the inherent security weaknesses of automotive systems and shows why they are so vulnerable to cyberattacks. It dives into the most subtle and dangerous of all code vulnerabilities and offers solutions for eliminating them and ensuring air-tight cybersecurity. And finally, it explains how solutions can lower the costs of ISO/SAE 21434 compliance. 

Reading our new white paper, ISO/SAE 21434 from a Software Development Perspective, automotive software developers, testers and managers will learn about:

 

  • The impact of several recent automotive industry megatrends on vehicle cybersecurity 
  • ISO/SAE 21434 and the challenges it presents to software development organizations 
  • The rapidly expanding attack surface landscape in automotive systems 
  • The inherent weaknesses in automotive systems that make securing them such a challenge 
  • Undefined behaviors—the most subtle and dangerous of software vulnerabilities 
  • Why mathematical formal methods are the key to eliminating undefined behaviors 
  • How formal methods tools support the fulfillment of ISO/SAE 21434 requirements 
  • How formal methods tools help contain the costs of ISO/SAE 21434 compliance and much more.
