Connected cars are evolving rapidly with more innovation and new applications for ADAS / autonomous driving, V2X, and infotainment. With the amount of hardware and software content enabling greater automation, cars have many potential points of security vulnerability and are targets to an increasing number of cyberattacks. To avoid weaknesses in security, OEMs are demanding both data protection and safety in the chip level. Automotive systems must address high-grade security and also must meet functional safety standards, which means implementing security functions to ensure that functional safety cannot be tampered with. Without security, there is no safety and vice versa. Secure systems must be able to handle unpredictable inputs that would create unacceptable behaviors. Designing the security into automotive SoCs from the hardware level will help ensure that connected cars behave as expected, are able to protect against malicious security attacks, and are capable of preventing random and systematic safety faults.
Synopsys is uniquely positioned in the market with standards-compliant safe and secure HSM IP for automotive that aligns with the latest technology demands and cybersecurity guidelines, and enable SoC designers to quickly implement the required security in their chips with low risk and fast time to market.
In addition to tRoot HSMs with Root of Trust, Synopsys provides a broad portfolio of highly integrated security IP solutions that use a common set of standards-based building blocks and security concepts to enable the most efficient silicon design and highest levels of security for a range of products in the cloud computing, automotive, digital home, IoT and mobile markets.
