Workshop 5 - Functional Safety/Cybersecurity


Alexander Much, Elektrobit, Germany
Miklos Biro, SCCH, Austria
Richard Messnarz, ISCN GmbH, Austria


Definition of Functional Safety and Cybersecurity

Implementing Functional Safety and Cybersecurity of electronic systems requires a broad spectrum of skills for a thorough understanding of domain specific standards and technological advances, engineering of complex functions and countermeasures against unintended behavior both due failures and security attacks with balanced architecture decisions, usage and misuse profiles. Automotive and Medical domain scenarios will be presented and discussed. Also contributions and discussions will be included concerning “How much agile is possible in safe and cyber secure systems and software development?”.

SPRINGER Book Series

EuroAsiaSPI² is publishing an annual SPRINGER book and the EuroSPI books show a total of 150000 (one hunded fifty thousand) chapter downloads. The workshop papers will form a chapter for this thematic topic in the SPRINGER book.

Additional Information

Key Contributors

Key contributions will come from European initiatives which developed best practices for traceability. However, the workshop is open to include experts who are willing to share their best practices with the community.

We invite experts to share their experiences with the EuroSPI community:

• Good tracebility practices / experiences
• Bad traceability practices / experiences
• Re-Use of traceability in "Baukasten" architectures
• Automatic generation of reports
• Environments and tools supporting traceability

Interactive Workshop Approach

Focus of interest and main questions discussed during the workshop will be:
  • Integrating a system design which covers all these norms? Examples and best practices.
  • Integrating assessment models where in one assessment all norms can be covered (in areas where there is an overlapping and synergy effect).
  • Can we implement agile in safety and security and if so, what are the best practices and/or limits?
  • What are best practices in medical device industry and what are learning effects for Automotive? What are joined embedded system problems to be solved?
  • What are best practices in Automotive industry and what are learning effects for the medical device industry? What are joined embedded system problems to be solved?
Each presentation will be discussed towards these main topics of interest. A panel discussion at the end shall come up with a summary of the solutions presented and with new research topics to focus on to solve this integrated approach (work for next year to meet at next EuroAsiaSPI and share again).
