Horiba MIRA is strengthening its automotive cybersecurity capabilities by offering full-vehicle TEMPEST testing, through its partnership with Secure Systems and Technologies (SST), a CPTAS accredited body.
The TEMPEST standard enables first-of-type platform tests to be carried out at Horiba MIRA for military manufacturers looking to understand the susceptibility to hacking of computer and telecommunications devices in their vehicles. These devices include computers, cables, telephones, radios and operating systems, which all emit electromagnetic radiation (EMR) that can be used by dishonest interceptors to reconstruct intelligible data.
The SST CPTAS TEMPEST accreditation will establish MIRA as the first accredited large vehicle testing chamber in the UK, with the ability to accommodate vehicles weighing up to 90 tons.
Together, MIRA and SST will perform full vehicle platform TEMPEST testing at Horiba MIRA’s site, to the standard SDIP 27/1 chapter 11 – CPTAS, in order to analyze how vulnerable equipment in military vehicles are to hacking. The vulnerability to hacking in defense and security vehicles is high if they have not met TEMPEST requirements.
