ECU developers can rely on optimal-fit components from Renesas and Escrypt to simplify implementation of the desired security functions. For an existing Autosar application, since the combined hardware/software solution is fully Autosar-compliant, no further development of security functions is required and the remaining tasks boil down to a simple configuration of the software, thereby eliminating up to 90 percent of the development effort.
For new applications, Autosar-compliant or not, the clean interface offered by the combined hardware/software enables system developers to concentrate on high-level software development, without having to worry about low-level or hardware-specific issues. This leads to a significant reduction of the overall effort by at least 50 percent in case of new applications.
The security solution can be further enriched by additional security services such as risk analysis and efficient security concepts, as well as software products such as key management from Escrypt. The security solution can also be integrated into a full Autosar stack, as e.g., provided by Escrypt’s parent company ETAS, itself a subsidiary of automotive supplier Bosch.
The globally available combination of Renesas and Escrypt products will enhance the security of connected, highly automated vehicles and provide added value to customers worldwide.
