What is Automotive Cybersecurity according to ISO/SAE 21434 ?

ISO/SAE 21434 is the security standard for motor vehicles. It is important for automotive product development and all related processes. The standard sets the criteria for automotive cybersecurity engineering and provides a guideline on which to base engineering quality.

The world is becoming more and more connected. It’s also our cars that are connected to the Internet. More connectivity means more data being transmitted, which can fall into the wrong hands. Cars are thus becoming more vulnerable to cyberattacks. This can jeopardize the safety of passengers and other road users. Cybersecurity in the automotive industry is becoming increasingly important these days. Existing standards do not address these new challenges.

ISO / SAE 21434 “Road vehicles – Cybersecurity engineering” develops a new standard for vehicles with a focus on cybersecurity, already during the vehicle development phase. This standard describes the requirements for handling and managing cybersecurity risks. The focus is on building all processes related to product development.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • The focus of the ISO/SAE 21434 standard is on the reliability of systems and on the holistic assurance of cybersecurity of all components installed in the vehicle and their data connections.
  • All car manufacturers developing connected vehicles and their relevant suppliers (OEMs) must implement a cybersecurity management system (CSMS).
  • Existing guidelines do not implement cybersecurity processes for connected cars. Due to a requirement of UNECE WP.29, this was introduced with ISO/SAE 21434.
