ISO/SAE 21434 covers new requirements for software security engineering, advanced testing procedures for automotive software, and best practices, on how to incorporate security early on in the development lifecycle.
ISO/SAE 21434 “Road Vehicles – Cybersecurity Engineering” has been co-developed by the International Standard of Organization (ISO) and the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) for the past two years. It will soon be introduced to provide a holistic guideline for secure automotive software development.
The standard covers all software devices within the vehicle, as well as connectivity to external systems. Since existing norms and standards were developed in a time when vehicles did not depend on software too heavily, they do not place too much value on its security.
