A training course from the area of software-centered function development

Cryptography and data security

The training ‘Cryptography and Data Security’ for engineers in the automotive industry plays a crucial role in ensuring the security and integrity of vehicle systems and data.

Cryptography involves the encryption of information to ensure its confidentiality, while data security involves the protection of data from unauthorised access and manipulation.

Various encryption methods, including symmetric and asymmetric methods, are used to encrypt and decrypt data. Symmetric methods use the same key for both processes, while asymmetric methods use two different keys.

In the automotive industry, cryptography is used in various areas, e.g. vehicle communication, software updates and data protection. It secures communication between vehicles and infrastructure, ensures that only authorised updates are installed on vehicle systems and helps to protect user privacy.

By learning and understanding these concepts, engineers in the automotive industry can ensure that they have the necessary skills to ensure the security and integrity of vehicle systems and data.
