Safety & Security

Platform for joint Safety and Security in the IoT

Together with eleven international partners, SYSGO starts the EU project SAFURE that aims at the development of a platform for integrated safety and security for critical systems in the Internet of Things. Main objective of the project is to provide a framework for integrated safety and security that identifies and avoids security threats for the functional safety of networked systems. A new methodology enables the joint design of functional safety and security and provides system designers and developers with the necessary tools at hand. The SAFURE partners respond to demands from the industry for more openness, communication and increasing the use of multi-core processors in safety-critical networked systems.

Holistic Approach

SAFURE cares for a holistic approach in the design of critical systems to detect and prevent attacks and to improve the performance of IT security and functional safety, thus overcoming the previous separation of IT security and functional safety.

Support for Designers and Developers

Designers and developers obtain analysis, development tools and features that enable a holistic view of system requirements in terms of IT security, functional safety, communications and runtime behavior.

Expansion of Standards

IT security should be integrated into industry-specific standards of functional safety to allow for the development of safe and secure products.

Implementations for Automotive and Telecommunication

As part of SAFURE, the integrated platform and the methodology are implemented for the automotive and the telecommunications market in order to use the knowledge gained in real projects.


In the project SAFURE, PikeOS hypervisor is used as a platform for the joint design of IT security and functional safety. It builds the basis for the development of the SAFURE demonstrators.

SAFURE is a research project proposed and adopted in the framework of the EU program Horizon 2020. The acronym SAFURE stands for SAFety and secURity by dEsign for interconnected mixed-critical cyber-physical systems. The project was officially launched on Feb 1, 2015 and has a term of 36 months. Twelve companies from six countries participate in SAFURE. Partners include Escrypt, Symtavision, SYSGO and the Technical University of Braunschweig from Germany, Thales SA and Thales TCS from France, Magneti Marelli and the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna from Italy, Technikon and TTTech from Austria, ETH Zurich from Switzerland and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center from Spain.
