TARA consulting and implementation based on ISO/SAE 21434.

Threat Analysis and Risk Assessment (TARA) is a preventative cybersecurity methodology defined in “ISO/SAE 21434: Road Vehicles- Cybersecurity Engineering”. The methodology contains a set of activities and procedures during automotive development and maintenance and is mandatory for all automotive OEMs according to UN Regulation No. 155.

As its name suggests, the TARA process involves the analysis of potential cyberattack objectives, vectors, and threats, followed by assessments of their risk and security levels. Since these factors vary greatly depending on the manufacturer’s environment and the vehicle in production, AUTOCRYPT provides customized consulting for OEMs to integrate TARA into their development process effectively and efficiently.
