Automotive cybersecurity: Keysight lab becomes United Nations technical service provider for Europe

  • From July 2024, new automotive cybersecurity regulations will apply to all new vehicles produced in the countries of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe.
  • Keysight Technologies, Inc. device security research laboratory, Riscure Security Solutions, has been appointed by the Dutch Vehicle Authority (RDW) as a technical service provider for the approval of United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) regulations R155 and R156.

Keysight’s device safety research laboratory can now carry out vehicle type approval assessments in accordance with UN R155 / R156 regulations.

Created by the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29), UNECE Regulations R155 and R156 set criteria for cyber security and software updates to enhance the reliability and safety of automotive systems.

UN R155 describes the cybersecurity requirements to be met by automakers, and applies to a number of specific vehicle types, at all phases of development, from production to post-production.

UN R156 specifies software update requirements for automakers, and applies to specific vehicle types exclusively during the post-production phase.

Thanks to this approval, Riscure Security Solutions can now certify vehicles in accordance with UNECE WP.29 regulations, which will become mandatory for all new vehicles produced from July 2024, in all UNECE countries.

Compliance with RDW’s UN R155 and UN 156 standards covers vehicles from the 27 countries of the European Union and 37 countries worldwide, including Australia, Japan, South Korea and the UK.
