Towards trust assurance and certification in cyber-physical systems
We are currently witnessing a 3rd industrial revolution, driven by ever more interconnected distributed systems of systems, running under the umbrella term of cyber-physical systems (CPS). In the context of this paradigm, different types of computer-based systems from different application domains collaborate with each other in order to render higher level services that could not be rendered by single systems alone. However, the tremendous potential of CPS is inhibited due to significant engineering challenges with respect to the systems safety and security. Traditional methodologies are not applicable to CPS without further ado and new solutions are therefore required. In this paper, we present potential solution ideas that are currently investigated by the European EMC² research project.
