Certification, Safety and Security at ERTS 2012

We are now leaving the Embedded Real Time Systems and Software conference which was held in Toulouse for the last 3 days. The conference has been expanding since the last occurrence in 2010, with more international presence, many German companies in particular, and a large number of companies from the automotive industry (maybe this is related? :) ).

I was particularly interested in the increasing concern over techniques to address safety and security. Safety is not new in avionics/aerospace, but security is, and both safety and security are quite new for automotive. The key to understanding these concerns is the recent release of new safety certification in both avionics (DO-178C) and automotive (ISO-26262). Both put some emphasis (not at the same level, as one could expect) on static analysis and formal techniques.

Like two years ago, there were many presentations of work on formal methods and modelling, with many formal methods applying to modelling. Next episode in two years!
