LDRA to Support New ISO/SAE 21434 Automotive Cybersecurity Standard
February 24, 2020
Support will be underscored by enhancements to the LDRA tool suite upon official release of the standard.
LDRA announced that the ISO/SAE 21434 automotive cybersecurity standard has reached the Draft International Standard (DIS) stage. LDRA is committed to supporting the standard with enhancements to the LDRA tool suite for Automotive as dictated by formal release of the standard.
Currently under development, ISO/SAE 21434 “Road vehicles – Cybersecurity engineering” is set to replace SAE J3061 “Cybersecurity Guidebook for Cyber-Physical Vehicle Systems.” Today, ISO/SAE 21434 offers the promise of a substantial document with more detail than the high-level guiding principles of SAE J3061.
The automotive industry is accustomed to dealing with prescriptive functional safety documents typified by ISO 26262 "Road vehicles – Functional safety", which was published in 2011. However, a similar standard for automotive cybersecurity has lagged behind, creating an industry frustration, especially as connected vehicles have become targets for cybersecurity attacks.
While advising extreme caution in basing any new product development on a DIS document, LDRA is confident that the guidance the organization can offer represents current best practice. LDRA therefore anticipates that a substantial majority of that advice will be reflected in ISO/SAE 21434 when it is finalized.
