Safety & Security
Single Source of Truth
Meet ISO 26262 Functional Safety Compliance Requirements
ISO 26262, titled “Road vehicles — functional safety”, is a risk-based functional safety standard that is critical to the automotive industry. Carmakers, their suppliers, and developers of automotive components are required to comply with the functional safety standard. However, meeting all the compliance requirements can be time consuming and difficult. That is why we make meeting compliance and traceability requirements easy.
One of the requirements for software compliance is the use of coding guidelines. While the most commonly used coding standards are MISRA C and C++, the AUTOSAR C++14 coding guidelines have been growing in popularity.
Using a certified static code analysis tool — such as Helix QAC and Klocwork — makes compliance to functional safety standards, coding standards, and writing error-free code easier. In addition, both Helix QAC and Klocwork are certified by TÜV-SÜD for the use for safety-related software development, including ISO 26262.
Ensure Automotive Software Security with ISO 21434
ISO 21434 “Road vehicles — cybersecurity engineering” is an automotive standard that is focused on the management of cybersecurity risk in road vehicle electronic systems.
The standard requires automotive manufacturers and suppliers to demonstrate due diligence in the implementation of cybersecurity engineering and that cybersecurity management is applied through the supply chain to support it.
Compliance with ISO 21434 demonstrates compliance with UNECE WP.29 (UN Regulation for vehicle type approval and cybersecurity management systems), which will become mandatory for all new vehicles beginning in 2024.
Using a static code analysis tool — like Helix QAC and Klocwork — makes it easy to validate the ISO 21434 criteria of using a coding standard by showing compliance to key secure coding guidelines, such as MISRA and CERT.
