Safety and Security for Future Embedded Systems

Speaker:  Sebastian Fischmeister – Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


For decades, safety was the dominating topic for cyberphysical systems. Safety of a system ensures that in the case of faults, the system is still highly unlikely to cause harm to users, capital infrastructure, or the environment. With the advent of connectivity, security is now becoming an equally important topic as connectivity enables scalable attacks. Unfortunately the complexity of today's systems prevents engineers from gaining a deep understanding of systems, and consequently, new approaches for safety and security are necessary.

This talk presents these challenges in the context of automotive systems. The talk discusses automation and autonomy of automotive systems, safety vs. security for connected vehicles, and in general shows the need for merging safety and security research for further advances in electronics, software, and systems for next-generation automated/autonomous systems.
