With the introduction of the new European security guideline according to ECE level (UNECE WP29; valid in the EU and partly in Asia), in future vehicle manufacturers will be required to verify the cybersecurity of their vehicle systems before their products can obtain type approval.
From now on, manufacturers must prove every three years that they have applied a certified cybersecurity management system which covers all stages ranging from vehicle engineering through to documentation. Using the cybersecurity management system, manufacturers must test the cybersecurity of all vehicle types, identify and document potential threats, address security-critical problems and suggest solutions, and finally demonstrably verify that these problems have been solved.
In this context, comes the launch of an Austrian product, ThreatGet, jointly developed by the AIT Austrian Instituteof Technology and Sparx Services CE. It helps developers identify threats at an early stage, allowing them to quickly assess the associated.
This cybersecurity verification requires a modern tool which, for the first time, allows manufacturers to test their systems for ECE compliance.
Peter Lieber, the founder of Sparx Services CE: «We have been working with AIT on this solution for two years and are proud that we can launch it on the market so quickly. ThreatGet offers IT system designers effective support for security procedures designed to prevent potential cyberattacks, or threats».
Set against the background of a strongly growing security engineering industry, ThreatGet is targeted at vehicle manufacturers, as well as all companies involved in analysing vehicle architectures and systems in order to issue certification.
