Cybersecurity specification in automotive – Video course
After this video course, you will know exactly what the cybersecurity specification components are according to ISO/SAE 21434. What’s more, you will learn how to handle the refinement of specifications along the different abstraction levels of architecture. Additionally, we will provide an overview of the characteristics of cybersecurity requirements, as they play an essential role in cybersecurity specification.
Get an overview of cybersecurity specification along the various abstraction levels of architecture
As cybersecurity specification gets defined early in the project, it has a significant impact throughout the entire project lifecycle. Therefore, in this video course “Cybersecurity specification”, we will go over the requirements of ISO/SAE 21434 about the refinement of cybersecurity specifications across all levels of architectural abstraction.
First, we will define what cybersecurity specification is in the context of ISO/SAE 21434, clarify how cybersecurity requirements come into play, and define architectural design.
Once you know what the cybersecurity specification is and what architectural design entails, we will introduce the need to create the cybersecurity specification for each abstraction level in the system and provide a practical example relevant to automotive cybersecurity.
After you have a first understanding on cybersecurity specification for the various abstraction levels of architecture, we will introduce the requirement of tracing requirements as demanded by ISO/SAE 21434.
Next, you will get an overview on how to handle cybersecurity requirements when they are combined with the overall system requirements. Then, we will go over the refinement and tracing of cybersecurity specification to the different abstraction levels including system levels and test cases.
Finally, you will get to know what some important characteristics of proper cybersecurity requirements are and where further guidance can be found.
Why the Cybersecurity Specification video course is relevant for you
Software and hardware engineers
As cybersecurity specification must be refined and traced across the various system levels, learning how this can be handled is essential to ensure ISO/SAE 21434 compliance and save resources by avoiding conflicts.
Quality and testing managers
Understanding how cybersecurity specification must be refined across the different abstraction levels of architecture is essential to comply with ISO/SAE 21434, but also to ensure full traceability from start to end.
