ASAM SCDL - Security Extension
Use Case Workshop
Date: March 29, 2022 | 13:30 - 17:00 Japanese Time (JT) | 6:30 am - 10:00 am CEST
Location: Online Meeting
ASAM SCDL V1.6.0 was released in 2021. The ASAM membership intends to extend the Standard by a notation rule to increase security of vehicles. The goal of this workshop was to discuss use cases and determine the scope of a future project.
The security extension will be integrated into the current SCDL process model. The extension is considered for the exchange information between security designer and safety designer. The extended model will be clarified in subsequent meetings and a proposal workshop will be prepared. The planned extension will be described in more detail in the project proposal which is currently being prepared.

What is ASAM SCDL
ASAM SCDL (Safety Concept Description Language) is a semi-formal notation to describe ISO 26262 safety architectures, namely safety concepts. This includes safety requirement specifications, element architectures, requirements allocation on elements, ASIL assignments, decompositions for safety mechanisms and others. ASAM SCDL specifies a notation, gives practical examples and defines a standardized machine-readable format.
Motivation for a security extension
ASAM SCDL already provides the foundation to describe safety architectures and safety concepts. But this is only one aspect of the safety & security discussion in the context of requirement Specification and architectures. Safety is the other essential part. However, a common understanding of a notation rule for vehicle development is still missing. The ASAM SCDL community has developed an idea to extend ASAM SCDL for security purposes that shall be shared with a broader audience.
Goal of the workshop
The ASAM SCDL community will present a use case on safety issues in vehicle development. This use case shall be discussed together in more detail. Participants have also the chance to share their own use cases and ideas to cover security issues. The goal of the workshop is to define the scope of a future project which will add a security notation to the ASAM SCDL Standard.
