Ensure a secure physical foundation for cybersecurity with Secure Hardware Implementation

As briefly introduced in this video course, secure hardware implementation is the foundation of cybersecurity of a vehicle. Therefore, this concept is of utmost importance to ensure hardware is securely and correctly implemented. In this video course, you will get familiar with this concept, learn about its purpose, and what are some available solutions.

First, we will define the concept of secure hardware and explain some of its purposes, which while providing some quick examples.

Once the basic concept of secure hardware is understood, we will go on to introduce some examples of specific threats hardware needs to be secured from and briefly explain what they consist of.

After presenting the most common threats, you will learn about the “Root of trust”, as the foundation of secure interaction among components. Here, we will go over some important factors to consider, especially when it comes to manufacturer selection of the specific component. Then, we will go over other main purposes involving cryptography and other development ports.

Next, best practices on secure hardware design and implementation will be provided. You will get to know for instance, specific responsibilities and important stakeholders, and which documents should be created by each team. You will also learn about hardware architecture and trust boundaries recommendations and practical examples of cybersecurity controls and tampering detection systems.

Lastly, you will get to know the industry standard solutions for secure hardware implementation: Hardware Security Module (HSM) and Trusted Platform Module (TPM). In a side to side comparison, you will learn about the differences between these components and how you can best benefit from them across different situations.
