ESCRYPT has obtained the ISO/SAE 21434 certificate for its security firmware CycurHSM. The product was certified with the highest security level CAL4 (Cybersecurity Assurance Level 4). The certification by TÜV Süd guarantees CycurHSM customers that the software stack for hardware security modules meets all the requirements of the new automotive cybersecurity standard.
Versions 2.5.6 and higher of ESCRYPT’s CycurHSM security firmware support the secure use of X.509 certificates. Users may implement chains of trust based on certificates that are protected by the hardware security module (HSM).
Vehicle computers are about to merge vehicle domains and their software-controlled functions. The ECUs in the periphery are increasingly becoming input/output devices whose actual application takes place at the computer level. The advantages for OEMs are far-reaching: IP is shifted to the central computers. The complexity of E/E architectures is reduced, as is the engineering effort.
With CycurHSM 2.x, automotive security provider ESCRYPT has developed a software stack that gives hardware security modules on ECU microcontrollers significantly more IT security functions than before. Enabling secure authorization procedures to be set up for automotive applications is just one feature of the new security software.
