ISO/SAE 21434 for the automotive industry
Module duration: 8 hours

Module overview

This module is based on the ISO/SAE 21434. This norm includes a set of analysis and technical documentation required to homologate new automotive models. The security of the road users, from the cybersecurity point of view, is the key point across the whole development and production process. In this module we present the key requirements by the standard, and what shall be considered for a secure product, adding the new activities in the existing development processes.

Objective of this module

The goal of the module is to address the core security topics, and activities, for automotive electrical components, needed to be compliant with the ISO/SAE 21434.

Similar to the ISO 26262, the 21434 norm asks the product to be “security protected” by design to avoid risks for the road users, highlighting activities that involve the whole V model.
The concepts taken from the work products of the standard have practical relevance both for product development and for its security assessment.

What you will learn:


How to apply security concepts to the automotive context


Parts of the ISO/SAE 21434 standard relevant for component development


The key concept in the ISO/SAE 21434


Basics of the ISO/SAE 21434 development and component certification process

You will cover:

This module covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to the ISO/SAE 21434 standard.

  • Concepts from the 21434 Standard and their integration into the development process.

  • Common best practices to ensure basic security protection.

  • Key documents and analysis needed.

  • Best practices, testing methodologies (type 1, 2 & 3) and product Maturity Levels.

  • Certifications.

This module is
intended for:

The module is targeted at professionals working for companies that deliver components (embedded devices, software applications, hosts, network devices) used in automotive vehicle contexts, including both the technical figures who will directly act according to the procedures defined in the standard (platform developers, embedded software developers, product testers, technical leaders) and the non-strictly technical professionals (product and project managers, business developers, quality managers…) who wish to better understand the value brought by application of the ISO/SAE 21434 standard to the products and processes that they manage.
