Mission of SAFURE

SAFURE’s mission is to design a cyber-physical system by implementing a methodology that ensures safety and security by construction. This methodology is enabled by a framework developed to extend system capabilities so as to control the concurrent effects of security threats on the system behaviour. With this in mind, the project aims at allowing European suppliers of safety-critical embedded products to develop more cost and energy-aware solutions.


The current approach for security on safety-critical embedded systems is generally to keep subsystems separated, but this approach is now being challenged by technological evolution towards openness, increased communications and use of multi-core architectures. SAFURE will push forward the limits of current approaches on safety and security mixed-critical systems in a way that has never been done before.
