Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, August 13th 2020, or created by us.
Cyber-physical systems (Internet of Things), critical infrastructures, Industry 4.0, autonomous mobility – these are all developments in which devices and products of all kinds use their own intelligence to control behavior and interact with the environment – we call a lot of ghosts, us to be of service.
Not only ensuring correct functioning ( safety ) is a challenge, the simultaneous networking and opening to the Internet also entail massive risks in the area of IT security. Reports from US-CERT and ICS CERT, for example, show that we are currently not adequately mastering these challenges.
The classic engineering methods to ensure the reliability of systems are only applicable to a limited extent with software – redundancy is hardly possible, wear and tear does not occur, changes/extensions are possible and desired to an extent that was never thought of in “hardware”.
We need “safeware” instead of “software”, reliable, robust systems instead of “soft goods”. The workshop should show approaches for the transition from software engineering to a new “safeware engineering”. It thus follows on from the “Automotive Safety & Security” symposium that took place over the past 16 years.
