Renesas to meet security standards for future automotive chip solutions

In an effort to implement robust automotive cybersecurity management systems, Renesas Electronics, an advanced semiconductor solutions supplier, announced its full commitment to meet the ISO/SAE 21434 road vehicles cybersecurity engineering international standard. This is applicable for its automotive microcontrollers (MCUs) and system on chip (SoC) solutions effective with new developments from January 2022.

Both ISO/SAE 21434 (released on August 31, 2021) and UNECE UN R155 require cybersecurity to be enforced across the entire automotive supply chain. Effective July 2022, for new vehicle types, auto OEMs will be required to have an automotive CSMS in place to ensure that the stringent cybersecurity processes have been implemented to gain vehicle type approval.

Takashi Yasumasu, Vice President of Automotive Core Technology Development Division at Renesas explained that, “Renesas aims to be a trusted partner for customers around the world in the face of the growing automotive security threats posed by CASE. We will establish security process with requirement definition by security analysis, implementation and evaluation, utilising and optimising existing development process. This enables us to provide products and solutions with appropriate risk mitigation measures.”

Renesas will continue to upgrade its automotive CSMS process to address new requirements and expectations called out in ISO/SAE 21434 and enhance its effective cybersecurity measures. Renesas' automotive CSMS will assign not only leaders responsible for hardware and software security development, but also system security leaders to address system use cases, aiming to provide not only compliance with standards but also optimal solutions.
