Implementing Functional Safety in Your Industrial IoT Critical Infrastructure Systems
How can a COTS operating system be used with hardware features to run a secure functional safety critical infrastructure IoT system? How can COTS certification evidence reduce Industrial IoT critical infrastructure project risk when developing a safety certified product? How to manage security risks when adding IoT connectivity to a product designed for function safety?
Modern real-time operating systems (RTOSes) provide the basic building blocks for many applications. But when it comes to implementing functionally safe critical infrastructure—safely managing operator errors, hardware failures, and changes in environment—having a deterministic real-time system is not enough. What is required is that the RTOS provides proven safety capability and as an added concern must also address the security aspects introduced when connecting functional safety systems to the outside world.
The pairing of safety and security is often challenging, with conflicting requirements, but compromising the security of the system can lead to safety issues, and so looking at combined requirements produces a more robust solution. The combination of both safety and security will ensure compliance with the most demanding regulations, and certifications can be achieved to ensure the success of the systems you are building.
Modern hardware affords virtualization technology that can be used for system partioning, and when combined with safety software provides separation of components and applications to ensure a secure and safe compute platform – even determining which applications have access to critical system resources.
With today's technological advancements, it is becoming increasingly important to identify and implement safety-related systems for smart grids, connected vehicles, industrial control systems, smart factories, and more.
This presentation looks at how a Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) operating system can be used with hardware features to run a secure functional safety critical infrastructure IoT system. It examines some key techniques used to develop functional safety systems, covering time & space partitioning, error handling, application management, and resource allocation. It then looks at how COTS certification evidence can reduce your Industrial IoT critical infrastructure project risk when developing a safety certified product, and how to manage security risks when adding IoT connectivity to a product designed for function safety.
