Cyber Security Engineering

Rapidly growing connectivity of vehicles with latest functionalities exposes various malware and risks. To ensure a cyber line of defence, it requires many solutions as a well-connected chain which prevents the attack of the invisible enemy.

Our comprehensive security solutions/services protect areas of vulnerabilities including external interfaces, in-vehicle networks, software updates and ECU software as a whole.

Key security requirements of Automotive Systems:

  • Secure OS
  • Support Hardware-based security (HSM, TEE)
  • Secure boot
  • Secure Software Update
  • Protection of sensitive information
  • Secure communication and networking
  • Intrusion detection
  • Robustness against failed or compromised components
  • Least privilege and minimal trust base
  • Robustness against external input
  • Minimization of information exposure

Engineering Practices:

Arctictern has a proven security engineering process in line with ASPICE to address the complex security requirements of automotive systems.

Structured and iterative Risks & Threat modelling is employed to identify risks, threats and vulnerabilities and takes measures to prevent and respond.

It helps security architects to

  • Accurately determine the attack surface of the system
  • Assign risk to various threats
  • Drive the vulnerability mitigation process
