Automotive cybersecurity company AutoCrypt has achieved certification for Automotive Software Process Improvement & Capability Determination (ASPICE) Capability Level (CL) 2.
ASPICE is an assessment scale that evaluates an automotive supplier’s software development and management procedures. It is a de facto standard for continuous improvements in the software supply chain, confirming that all components are planned, performed and managed systematically.
AutoCrypt (which is claimed to be one of the first cybersecurity providers to gain this certification) was awarded the ASPICE CL2 certification for its AutoCrypt IVS-TEE software security platform, a trusted execution environment (TEE) built into application processors.
As the TEE is separated from regular operating systems, it enables applications to run in an isolated and secure environment. AutoCrypt is one of the first companies to integrate TEE into the automotive ecosystem, enabling it to strengthen its partnership network for in-vehicle software security.
“Automotive architecture is transforming rapidly. More and more application processors are built into vehicles to run advanced applications like ADAS, infotainment and the central communication unit. This makes software security a key determinant of vehicle quality, reliability and safety,” said Daniel E S Kim, CEO of AutoCrypt. “We look forward to integrating cutting-edge security technologies into the automotive supply chain to ensure a reliable and flawless software-defined experience.”
