ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 Certification for Insight
July 09, 2014 – Klocwork today announced that ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certifications for Insight 9.6-SR4 have been renewed with Certificate No. Z10 14 07 89117 001.
September 2013 - Klocwork Insight 9.6-SR4 has received both ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certifications. These certifications are critical to the automotive industry in defining the functional safety for automotive equipment throughout the lifecycle of all electronic and electrical safety systems. Ensure ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 compliance.
ISO 26262 is a Functional Safety standard published by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and is targeted at road vehicle safety. The standard is based heavily on the Functional Safety standard IEC 61508 for Automotive Electric/Electronic Systems, covering numerous activities and processes in the software development lifecycle.
Klocwork Insight is ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certified. Developers can use the certified set of Klocwork Insight checkers to find and fix security vulnerabilities and critical defects with confidence, knowing they have been designed, developed, tested and released in an audited and certified manner. Klocwork also provides guidance to ensure that developers use our static analysis tool in a functionally safe way that supports their own application for ISO 26262 certification.
While software verification tools cannot, on their own, ensure compliance with ISO-26262, they can aid developers looking to demonstrate process compliance. SCA tools can either fully or partially address many of the requirements found in Part 6 of the standard. This section covers “Product Development at the Software Level” for the functional safety of road vehicles and examines correctness of software design and implementation.
Klocwork’s full-featured source code analysis solution, Klocwork Insight, helps developers find and fix security vulnerabilities and critical defects the moment they’re introduced. MISRA-C and MISRA-C++ coding standard violations can be reported automatically at the developer desktop, integration build and through Klocwork’s peer code review tool, Klocwork Cahoots. Additionally, specific versions of Klocwork Insight are ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 certified. Developers can use the tool’s set of certified checkers to detect coding issues with confidence, knowing they have been designed, developed, tested and released in an audited and certified manner. Klocwork also provides guidance to ensure developers use Klocwork Insight in a functionally safe way that supports their own application for ISO 26262 certification.
What do you need to know?
Klocwork's certification is well-documented in the Functional Safety Manual for Klocwork Insight and related documents. These documents describe the conditions under which the use of Klocwork Insight supports functional safety.
The qualification pack, as described in the Functional Safety Manual for Klocwork Insight, is available from your account executive. The Qualification Pack test procedures check the requirements under normal operating conditions. Each procedure involves stimulating the tool with provided input data in order to generate a validated pass/fail report for each checker. The tool is deterministic in its execution and will consistently generate the same output results for a given set of input data parameters.
To validate that you have the current, supported Qualification Pack, you can compare the MD5 checksum, which should be 26d39b869f798137fa090d076fcce6d7.
