“ECE-TRANS-WP29-2020-079-Revised” is technology agnostic and provides flexibility for the manufacturers to determine how they will accomplish the requirements of the regulation. For example, section of the regulation requires the manufacturer to respond to threats and vulnerabilities within, “a reasonable timeframe,” but does not mandate the inclusion of certain technologies that may facilitate a fast response; it is up to the vehicle manufacturer to make its own determination about how it will accomplish that, and other, objectives required by the regulation (eg, with technology, processes, both or neither). Additionally, Annex 5 of “ECE-TRANS-WP29-2020-079-Revised” provides a list of generic threats and mitigations that must be demonstrably considered and applied to the vehicle type throughout its development processes and lifecycle.
