    Vehicle Conformity vs. Cybersecurity - Challenges for the Automotive Industry

    With upcoming legal requirements, standards and regulations, cybersecurity will play a central role in the automotive industry and will be one of the key enablers for the successful development and implementation of safe and reliable vehicles. While the relevance of ISO/SAE 21434 to on-road vehicle cybersecurity engineering is well known, the interplay with legal requirements and regulations are often misunderstood or unknown. With this presentation, we provide an introduction to the automotive cybersecurity framework. We introduce the concepts of type approval and self-certification, which are important for automotive manufacturers to sell vehicles in different markets worldwide. We explain the situation in Europe with relevant regulatory requirements such as the European Union’s General Safety Regulation (GSR) and UNECE Regulation R155 that OEMs must comply with. To illustrate how this impacts the entire automotive supply chain from OEMs to software and hardware manufacturers, we show how this framework ensures cybersecurity throughout the supply chain and what requirements automotive companies need to manage - always with TÜV SÜD’s expertise as a technical testing company and technical service with extensive experience in vehicle certification.
