Webinar: AUTOSAR for holistic vehicle protection


Recording: Streamed on 08 Jul 2021

Language: English

Duration: 40 min 50 sec

Speakers: Dr. Michael Peter Schneider, Project Manager AUTOSAR Security

Vehicle development – and ECU development in particular – has undergone tremendous changes in recent years, especially concerning emergent mobility topics. In this context, AUTOSAR has also extended its security portfolio by more and more components. Securing an ECU and a complete vehicle, however, demands a holistic approach. Hence, a correct configuration of the AUTOSAR security modules is mandatory, but additional technologies are essential for a secure vehicle.

This recorded webinar gives an overview of the security mechanisms included in the latest AUTOSAR releases. Using the example of Secure Onboard Communication (SecOC), ETAS's AUTOSAR expert Dr. Michael Peter Schneider shows how the AUTOSAR security modules should be integrated into the Software Engineering Process (SEP).In addition, you will learn which measures are required beyond the AUTOSAR specifications, in order to secure the vehicle network holistically. Finally, there is an insight into the activities of the AUTOSAR consortium, in which firewall functionality is currently being standardized.
