Developing Components Off-The-Shelf and Out-Of-Context

Ensure secure development or reuse of components as required by ISO/SAE 21434:2021

Get an overview of all the different scenarios in developing components including component development within context, out-of-context, and Components Off the Shelf (COTS). In this video course, you will also explore which ISO/SAE 21434:2021 requirements must be considered for developing components in all of these three scenarios.

Explore the various development scenarios incl. out-of-context and off-the-shelf in accordance with ISO/SAE 21434:2021

In the realm of cybersecurity within the automotive sector, a strategy that holds notable significance for effectively integrating cybersecurity into vehicle development involves utilizing existing components to minimize the developmental resources required. Nonetheless, there are specific considerations to bear in mind during the process.

This video course “Components: Off-the-shelf and Out-of-context” precisely covers the secure development of components along these development scenarios, their relevance, and the application of cybersecurity throughout the process as demanded by ISO/SAE 21434:2021.

The course begins by delving into the distinctions between “Out of context” and “Components Off the Shelf” (COTS) components, as defined by ISO/SAE 21434:2021.

Once there is a common understanding, three distinct development scenarios that provide the foundation for contemplating the potential for component reuse are presented. First, the development process for components that are within context, the hypothetical ideal development process aligned with ISO/SAE 21434 is illustrated. Then, “out-of-context” components, elucidating the concept of developmental work based on an assumed context are addressed. Lastly, off-the-shelf components, that may not adhere to the ISO/SAE 21434 standard, are also covered.

A comparative analysis of these scenarios, both within and beyond the purview of ISO/SAE 21434:2021, is presented to provide a swift visual overview of their scopes and differentiating factors.

To conclude, the course examines the requirements necessary for the successful implementation of out-of-context and components off-the-shelf development, as stipulated by ISO/SAE 21434:2021.

Who the “Components: Off-the-Shelf and Out-of-context” video course is made for

Software Developers and Engineers

Reusing components is a common practice to reduce development efforts, however it is important to consider ISO/SAE 21434:2021 requirements not only for developing components in the typical context, but also for out-of-context, and off-the-shelf context.

Quality Assurance and Testing Specialists

Individuals involved in testing and quality assurance for vehicles can greatly benefit from understanding the different development scenarios and how to assess components developed within these contexts in accordance with ISO/SAE 21434:2021.
