  • Cyber Security as a Design Objective

    Increasing digitalisation presents the armed forces with a whole host of new challenges. Digitalised vehicles and weapon systems are potentially vulnerable to cyber attacks ‒ and not just when they are connected to the Internet. As demonstrated by the Stuxnet computer worm in the attacks on the Iranian nuclear programme, even systems and networks that are supposedly isolated are at risk. Social engineering allows malware to infiltrate such systems even without a direct network connection.

  • Cyber-Sicherheit als Entwicklungsziel

    Die zunehmende Digitalisierung bringt für die Streitkräfte eine ganze Reihe neuer Herausforderungen mit sich. Digitalisierte Fahrzeuge und Waffensysteme sind potentiell anfällig für Hackerangriffe, und das nicht nur, wenn sie tatsächlich mit dem Internet verbunden sind. Wie der Computerwurm Stuxnet bei den Angriffen auf das iranische Atomprogramm gezeigt hat, sind auch vermeintlich isolierte Systeme und Netzwerke gefährdet. Über Social Engineering lässt Schadsoftware sich auch ohne unmittelbare…

  • Security Certification of IoT Devices with a Component-based Software Design

    Different types of IoT applications are subject to different security standards. Whether you want to meet the requirements of the Common Criteria for Information Technology Security (ISO 15408), IEC 62443 for Industrial Control Systems, EDSA (Embedded Device Security Analysis) or J3061 in the automotive sector: We will show you how you can quickly meet all necessary requirements with a component-based software design.

  • Uniform Hardware Platforms for all Car Features

    The cost-effective and safe implementation of assistance systems and autonomous cars requires a new approach to development of the control components. The objective is to integrate diverse applications on one hardware platform, but - for safety reasons - to be able to continue operating them fully independently.

  • Development and Certification significantly simplified

    Alongside electromobility, driver assistance systems and autonomous driving are currently the most important focal points in automotive development. Today, many functions in automobiles are already fully or partially automated; driver assistance systems such as distance warning systems, rear-view cameras or parking aids are finding their way into series production of even small and medium-sized vehicles. Fully autonomous cars, buses and even trucks are in test operation on public roads; the…

  • Entwicklung und Zertifizierung deutlich vereinfacht

    Fahrerassistenzsysteme und autonomes Fahren sind neben der Elektromobilität derzeit die wichtigsten Schwerpunkte in der Automobilentwicklung. Schon heute sind viele Funktionen in Automobilen vollständig oder teilweise automatisiert; Fahrerassistenzsysteme wie Abstandswarner, Rückfahrkameras oder Einparkhilfen finden Zugang in die Serienproduktion selbst kleiner und mittlerer Fahrzeuge. Komplett autonom fahrende PKW, Busse und auch LKW sind auf öffentlichen Straßen im Testbetrieb; erste…

  • How to address Certification for Multi-Core based IMA Platforms

    In modern aircrafts, more and more functions traditionally implemented as Line Replaceable Units (LRUs) will be hosted by Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) modules. At the same time new aircraft programs will require new safety functions, information services and comfort features which will also increase the demand for processing performance of IMA modules.

  • A Modular Train Control System through the Use of certified COTS HW/SW and qualified Tools

    The European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) forms the basis for standardization in relation to train control systems (ETCS), command control and safety technology, and Integrated Electronic Control Centres (IECC) in Europe [ETC16]. The previous HW/SW systems in these fields followed a monolithic integration approach applied by the individual manufacturers. This harbours problems relating to the compatibility of the systems of the various manufacturers, creates dependencies and reduces…
