Green Hills Software, the worldwide leader in embedded safety and security, announced today it has adopted the two new international security standards and regulations for automotive cybersecurity – ISO/SAE 21434 and UNECE WP.29 – for the INTEGRITY® real-time operating system (RTOS) and associated products and services. For decades, Green Hills has been an industry-recognized leader helping electronics manufacturers create and deploy embedded systems at the highest levels of safety and security. By offering compliant products and associated evidence reports for these new standards, Green Hills will build upon its proven pedigree as the foundational run-time software provider trusted by OEMs and their Tier 1 suppliers for automotive electronics. Utilizing these new security standards enables manufacturers to design and deploy purpose-built, secure, software-defined systems in connected vehicles, including highly automated driving, high performance compute clusters, domain controllers, vehicle gateways, telematics, keyless entry, diagnostic connections and electric vehicle charging stations, to name a few.
As reliance on vehicle connectivity grows and demand for software-defined services rises, the risk of cyberattacks against connected vehicles continues to rise. With over 100 ECUs and hundreds of millions of lines of code, connected vehicles are a target-rich platform for cyberattacks. Multiple points of entry to modern connected vehicles provide opportunities for malicious vehicle control, fraud, and data-breaches that threaten companies, drivers, and road users. A single exploited security vulnerability could put an entire fleet of vehicles at risk, numbering in the millions. With nearly 80% of new cars connected1 to the internet, cybersecurity breaches have the potential to put billions of dollars in sales and lawsuits at risk – not to mention the damage to brand reputation.
As a result, governmental bodies and independent regulators are drafting two related measures for managing cybersecurity threats throughout a connected vehicle’s lifecycle. Green Hills is collaborating with its customers and adopting cybersecurity assessment policies for the following:
- The draft ISO/SAE 21434 “Road vehicles – Cybersecurity engineering” Standard was recently published by SAE International and ISO (Organization for Standardization). It is a baseline for vehicle manufacturers and suppliers to ensure cybersecurity risks are managed efficiently and effectively from both a product lifecycle and organizational perspective spanning concept, development, production, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning.
- The WP.29 regulations from the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) make OEMs responsible for cybersecurity mitigation in four cybersecurity areas spanning the entire vehicle lifecycle: managing cyber risks; securing vehicles by design; detecting and responding to security incidents; and providing safe and secure over-the-air (OTA) software updates. While WP.29 defines concrete examples of threats and mitigations, OEMs can choose how they show the threats are addressed, such as complying with ISO/SAE 21434. The regulation is expected to be finalized in early 2021 and applied initially to many member nations including European nations, South Korea, UK, and Japan, and will likely influence vehicle homologation polices in the US, Canada and China.
WP.29 will be legally binding within adopting countries, and while the ISO/SAE 21434 standard is not a regulation, it is expected to be widely accepted in the global industry like ISO 26262 is today.
“Connected cars bring significant risks and rewards to OEMs and their suppliers,” said Chris Rommel, Executive Vice President, IoT & Industrial Technology at VDC Research. “Green Hills has earned a high stature in the industry for supplying security-critical foundational software to companies building life-critical systems like aircraft avionics, vehicle ADAS and medical equipment, and its support of these new cybersecurity standards is noteworthy.”
“ISO/SAE 21434 and WP.29 are valuable additional steps towards protecting connected vehicles from cybersecurity vulnerabilities,” said Dan Mender, VP of Business Development at Green Hills Software. “Green Hills has decades of experience developing and delivering security-certified technologies at the highest levels. Adopting these standards expands our offerings to global automotive OEMs and their suppliers bringing the industry’s leading secure software run-time environment to next-generation connected vehicle electronics.”

August 18, 2009 — Green Hills Software announced the latest firmware release of its hardware-assisted microprocessor debugging solution, the Green Hills Probe. In combination with Green Hills Software’s MULTI software development environment, the Green Hills Probe enables software developers to gain the control and visibility required to perform board bring-up, device driver development, and other system debugging tasks in the least amount of time and with the lowest development cost. This release of the Green Hills Probe provides support for symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) operating systems, such as Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY real-time operating system. Green Hills Probe enables a seamless and powerful SMP debugging experience by providing synchronized multi-core run-control, inter-core cache coherency features, and intelligent inter-core breakpoint management. Application and device driver developers will be able to find and fix bugs faster, resulting in faster time-to-market for end products.The release adds support for the latest microprocessors including ARM Cortex A8-based processors - such as the Texas Instruments OMAP 3530 and Freescale i.MX515, the dual core Freescale MPC8641D, and a major overhaul of ColdFire support, including the MCF5222x, MCF225x, and MCF227x processors.About the Green Hills ProbeThe Green Hills Probe is the fastest and smartest debug probe ever built. Harnessed through the MULTI integrated development environment or a fully scriptable Web 2.0 interface, the third-generation Green Hills Probe helps embedded developers find and fix bugs faster than ever before. With download rates in excess of 10 MB per second, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 2.0 High Speed, and a flexible electrical interface, the Green Hills Probe will debug a wider range of CPUs faster than any other probe. The Green Hills Probe uses hand-placed custom logic and a highly optimized software path to attain its unprecedented speed.The Green Hills Probe brings a new level of intelligence and versatility to the world of JTAG debug probes. On-board flash programming support for virtually every NOR flash part available, built-in Python scripting with full access to all JTAG and debug port functionality, and a fully scriptable Web 2.0 interface enable the Green Hills Probe to be used for every phase of the product cycle.Built with INTEGRITYThe Green Hills Probe is powered by Green Hills Software’s INTEGRITY, the leading market share high-reliability real-time operating system. The INTEGRITY RTOS’s partitioning architecture and ultra-fast response time enabled the creation of a probe that is modular, reliable, and easy to use while attaining performance levels that have never before been achieved.
