Towards Tool-based Security-informed Safety Oriented Process Line Engineering

Conference/Workshop Paper


1st International workshop on Interplay of Security, Safety and System/Software Architecture


For the purpose of certification, manufactures of nowadays highly connected safety-critical systems are expected to en- gineer their systems according to well-defined engineering processes in compliance with safety and security standards. Certification is an extremely expensive and time-consuming process. Since safety and security standards exhibit a certain degree of commonality, certification-related artifacts (e.g., process models) should to some extent be reusable. To en- able systematic reuse and customization of process infor- mation, in this paper we further develop security-informed safety-oriented process line engineering (i.e., engineering of sets of processes including security and safety concerns). More specifically, first we consider three tool-supported ap- proaches for process-related commonality and variability man- agement and we apply them to limited but meaningful por- tions of safety and security standards within airworthiness. Then, we discuss our findings. Finally, we draw our conclu- sions and sketch future work.
