The meeting was hosted by <a href="http://www.amass-ecsel.eu/partners/fondazione-bruno-kessler">FBK</a>. Thirty-three people attended the meeting. They outlined the work performed during the sixth semester of the project, presented the ongoing work, and discussed the work until the end of the project. Both technical and non-technical aspects were covered.</p> <p><strong>The discussions on <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/objectives">technical aspects</a> focused on the validation and evaluation of the <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/deliverables">AMASS results</a> in the <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D1.1_Case-studies-description-and-business-impact_AMASS_Final.pdf">11 industrial case studies</a></strong>: Industrial and Automation Control Systems, Advanced driver assistance function with electric vehicle, Collaborative automated fleet of vehicles, Design  and safety assessment of on-board software applications in Space Systems, Platform Screen Doors Controller, Automatic Train Control Formal Verification, Safety Assessment of Multi-Modal Interactions in Cockpits, Telematics Function in Automated and Connected Vehicles, Safety-Critical SW Lifecycle of a Monitoring System for Air Traffic Management, Certification Basis to Boost the Usage of MPSoC Architectures, and Design and Efficiency Assessment of Model-based Attitude and Orbit Control Software Development. The progress made on the application of the latest version of the AMASS Tool Platform (<a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D2.4_AMASS-reference-architecture-%28c%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">Prototype P2</a>) was presented as well as the work on benchmarking AMASS results by comparing how CPS assurance and certification activities are performed without and with the results. Coverage in the case studies of the P2 features and of <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/objectives">AMASS goals</a> was analysed too.</p> <p><strong>As <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/organization">non-technical aspects</a></strong>, the status on networking, community building, industrial impact, exploitation, dissemination, and standardisation was outlined. The actions since the last general meeting include the finalisation of the <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D8.4_Exploitation-Results-and-Final-Market-Megatrends-Analysis_AMASS_Final.pdf">exploitation plans and market analysis</a>, and the revision of the <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D7.7_AMASS-open-source-platform-provisioning-and-website%28c%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">AMASS open source platform provisioning and website</a>.

But no worries! Security and openness are two orthogonal issues and the AMASS Open Tool Platform is certainly not a liability for the development of CPS.</p> <p><strong>No direct relationship between open source and security</strong>. It is true that The OSS movement was not designed with security in mind, but also that the OSS community do believe that opening their code up for inspection will increase protection against bugs. When analysing security aspects in open source vs. closed source software, no significant differences in the severity of vulnerabilities have been found.</p> <p><strong>Closed source solutions are not necessarily more secure</strong>. The openness in OSS makes it easier for both the good and the bad guys to find vulnerabilities in the code, since it is available for anyone to review (and to fix!). However, closed models implementing a “security through obscurity” approach are not necessarily better. Security is a holistic concept not only depending on the final result, but also linked to the creation and maintenance process, and open source has the potential to be better than closed source software in terms of security vulnerabilities being available for public scrutiny.</p> <p><strong>Projection in the AMASS context</strong>. AMASS project partners and early adopters agree that security is crucial in all tools, systems and platforms, and of course AMASS results are no exception. On the one hand, the Eclipse Development Process already covers the traceability of the code published for the AMASS tool platform. On the other hand, he AMASS open platform is supposed to be embedded in a larger environment, - either a proprietary product, or a specific deployment by a large organisation- where additional measures can be integrated to ensure the security of the platform.</p> <p>AMASS is about tools for assurance and certification processes that can be used in several domains to improve system engineering efficiency, but AMASS is not a CPS core component, and thus the AMASS tool platform by itself is not a liability for the development of CPS. <strong>The AMASS open platform is deployed in the context of a global certification and assurance process that should consider the security risks related to the tools in order to effectively mitigate them</strong>.</p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/public-tags/amass-ecsel" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">AMASS ECSEL</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/public-tags/open-source" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Open source</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/public-tags/amass-tool-platform" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">AMASS Tool Platform</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/public-tags/security" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Security</a></div></div></div> Fri, 08 Feb 2019 11:18:22 +0000 jvara 178 at https://www.amass-ecsel.eu https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/considerations-about-open-source-and-security#comments AMASS Open Industrial Workshop https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/amass-open-industrial-workshop-0 <div class="field field-name-field-rrss field-type-text-long field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><p style="text-align: right;"><span style="font-size: 13.008px; line-height: 20.0063px; text-align: right;"> Share this post : </span> <a href="https://twitter.com/home?status=http%3A//www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/amass-open-industrial-workshop-0" target="_blank"> <img style="vertical-align: middle; margin: 5px;" src="/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/pictures/button_rss_twitter.png" alt="" width="30" height="30" /></a> <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/shareArticle?mini=true&amp;url=http%3A//www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/amass-open-industrial-workshop-0&amp;title=&amp;summary=&amp;source=" target="_blank"> <img style="vertical-align: middle; margin: 5px;" src="/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/pictures/button_rss_linkedin.png" alt="" width="30" height="30" /></a></p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p><img style="float: left; margin: 5px;" src="/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/blog/workshop.jpg" width="140" height="95" />AMASS is organising an Open Industrial Workshop on March 28th, 2019, in Florence, Italy, to present practical aspects and concrete application examples of the main AMASS results.</p> <p>The workshop is targeted at both practitioners and researchers aiming to gain awareness of the latest advances on cost-effective assurance and certification of safety-critical systems, and of how the corresponding solutions work.

<strong>This post summarises the progress made during the fifth semester of the project</strong>, complementing previous posts on e.g. the progress during the <a href="https://amass-ecsel.eu/content/amass-status-month-6">first</a>, <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/second-semester-amass">second</a>, <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/third-semester-amass">third</a> and <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/fourth-semester-amass-and-new-newsletter">fourth</a> semesters, and the <a href="https://amass-ecsel.eu/content/very-successful-first-project-review-amass">first</a> and <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/amass-results-have-been-evaluated-remarkable-second-project-review">second</a> project reviews.</p> <p>During the fifth semester of the project, the technical work by the <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/partners">AMASS consortium</a> has strongly focused on the design and implementation of the <strong>third version of the AMASS Tool Platform (<a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D2.4_AMASS-reference-architecture-%28c%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">Prototype P2</a>)</strong>.</p> <p>For <strong>Architecture-Driven Assurance</strong>, the new features of the AMASS Prototype P2 have aimed to ensure that the provided functionalities include support for both (1) the left-hand side of the V-model at high- and low-level design and (2) the corresponding V&amp;V activities on the right-hand side. For example, extended support has been provided for nominal and fault behavioural components specification, and to trace the elements of the architecture to assurance cases and to evidence and process data. The new results for <strong>Multi-Concern Assurance</strong> include extensions concerning the automatic generation of argument fragments for dependability assurance, the integration of safety and security analysis tools for system dependability co-analysis and co-assessment, and the management of multi-concern argument fragments for contract-based multi-concern assurance. <strong>Seamless Interoperability</strong> has been improved by largely extending the set of tools with which the AMASS Tool Platform can exchange data with, including commercial tools commonly used in CPS engineering and covering tools from practically all CPS lifecycle phases, and by providing new means for access management and data management towards enhanced collaborative work. Regarding <strong>Cross- and Intra-Domain Reuse</strong>, reuse assistance now exploits data mining and semantic technologies to identify reusable assets, new features have extended the available support for automatic argument generation and for product-, process-, and argument-related reuse via management of variability, and compliance checking uses formal approaches for compliance analysis of processes against standards.</p> <p>Deliverables <strong><a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D3.3_Design-of-the-AMASS-tools-and-methods-for-architecture-driven-assurance-%28b%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D3.3</a>, <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D4.3_Design-of-the-AMASS-tools-and-methods-for-multiconcern-assurance-%28b%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D4.3</a>, <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D5.3_Design-of-the-AMASS-tools-and-methods-for-seamless-interoperability-%28b%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D5.3</a> and <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D6.3_Design-of-the-AMASS-tools-and-methods-for-cross-intra-domain-reuse-%28b%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D6.3</a> describe the conceptual design</strong> for Prototype P2, <strong><a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D3.6_Prototype-for-architecture-driven-assurance-%28c%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D3.6</a>, <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D4.6_Prototype-for-multiconcern-assurance-%28c%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D4.6</a>, <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D5.6_Prototype-for-seamless-interoperability-%28c%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D5.6</a> and <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D6.6_Prototype-for-cross-intra-domain-reuse-%28c%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D6.6</a> document the implementation</strong> results, and deliverables <strong><a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D3.8_Methodological-guide-for-architecture-driven-assurance-%28b%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D3.8</a>, <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D4.8_Methodological-guide-for-multiconcern-assurance-%28b%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D4.8</a>, <a href="https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/documents/D5.8_Methodological-guide-for-seamless-interoperability-%28b%29_AMASS_Final.pdf">D5.8</a> and D6.8 present the methodological guidance</strong> to use the results.

He also outlined recent plans to a more tool-guided safety management to better manage complex safety cases due to combination of series, systems, and versions in the future. Several tier suppliers showed their application of tools and norms with respect to autonomous driving and electrification, as well as challenges coming up due to  <a href="https://www.iso.org/standard/68383.html">ISO 26262 2nd edition</a>. There was a very interesting presentation from the Aviation domain, explaining that quick learning and adaptation of users to new tools is a key factor in decisions on tool landscape.</p> <p><strong>The second workshop day was fully packed with sessions on “safety case handover”</strong>, especially from Semiconductor to tier suppliers. Different viewpoints, limitations, and tool breaches due to historical reasons and “animosities” between suppliers were discussed. Future trends such as collaborative real-time editing and full traceability were discussed in detail. safety and security as co-located activities were tackled shortly.</p> <p><strong>In October 2018 there is a <a href="https://www.eventbrite.de/e/medini-analyze-user-conference-us-2018-tickets-44548327246">similar event planned</a> that will happen in Troy, MI, USA</strong>.

With the title “Evolutionary development and frequent releases of safety systems”, Thor presented their recent work on the application of agile methods for the development and assurance of software-intensive critical systems. This work includes <a href="https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319993331">SafeScrum</a> and the so called <a href="https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319702643">agile safety case</a>.</p> <p><a href="https://www.springer.com/us/book/9783319992280">SASSUR papers</a> were divided into <strong>three sessions for paper presentation</strong>. As a novelty for this edition, each paper had an assigned discussant (another paper’s presenter) and the time for questions &amp; answers and discussion was extended. The main topics of the accepted papers are the comparison of safety analysis techniques, the comparison of safety analysis techniques and security analysis ones, risk estimation for automated vehicles, analysis of generic-component integration in automated driving vehicles, synergies between safety assurance practices and cybersecurity assurance ones, and challenges for assuring complex and large safety-critical systems.</p> <p><strong>A panel on trends and needs for future assurance of safety-critical systems was also organised</strong>. <a href="https://ca.linkedin.com/in/laurent-fabre-5693b81">Laurent Fabre</a>, <a href="https://www.sintef.no/en/all-employees/employee/?empId=2390">Thor Myklebust</a>, and <a href="https://fi.linkedin.com/in/timovarkoi">Timo Varkoi </a>were the panellists. They discussed with the audience recent worrying issues, the main aspects to consider for future assurance, the extent to which existing system analysis techniques (for safety, security, etc.) will be valid for the next generation of systems, whether regulations are ready for future assurance, the necessary means for future assurance of safety-critical systems, and how future assurance can take advantage of advanced technologies such as e.g.  artificial intelligence and blockchain.</p> <p>It is expected that a new edition of SASSUR will be held next year at <strong><a href="https://conferences.ncl.ac.uk/safecomp2019/">SAFECOMP 2019 </a>in Turku, Finland</strong>.</p> <p style="text-align: center;"><img src="/sites/amass.drupal.pulsartecnalia.com/files/blog/SASSUR2018_2.jpg" width="600" height="450" /></p> </div></div></div><div class="field field-name-field-tags field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above"><div class="field-label">Tags:&nbsp;</div><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even"><a href="/public-tags/amass-ecsel" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">AMASS ECSEL</a></div><div class="field-item odd"><a href="/public-tags/sassur" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">SASSUR</a></div><div class="field-item even"><a href="/public-tags/dissemination" typeof="skos:Concept" property="rdfs:label skos:prefLabel" datatype="">Dissemination</a></div></div></div> Fri, 28 Sep 2018 09:58:29 +0000 jvara 171 at https://www.amass-ecsel.eu https://www.amass-ecsel.eu/content/sassur-2018-workshop-has-been-successfully-held#comments
