    Series: Center for Cyber-Physical Systems and Internet of Things

    Abstract: Increasing tempo and complexity of missions for aircraft and space vehicles has driven the design of such systems to higher levels of autonomous operations. Consequently, the challenges of ensuring a safe and secure operational regime have been rapidly escalating. While a number of techniques, new and old, are available to address different facets of these challenges, what seems to be missing is some cohesive approach or framework that can support the total design lifecycle while lowering the cost and risk of a successful design and deployment of such cyber-physical systems.

    This talk will focus on some of these challenges and where overlaps exist in the safety and security needs and in its eventual resolution within a software and hardware design. Some notable approaches and methodologies will be discussed briefly to highlight the potential of such convergence as well as some mention of current state-of-practice in software and hardware verification, validation, and accreditations (VV&A).
