Safeware Engineering

Smart Systems and the Internet of Things (IoT) are beginning to permeate our entire life. For the social acceptance of these applications it is essential that they can be used easily and without danger. Smart Grids / Smart Energy Systems, Autonomous Vehicles, Smart Home, Industry 4.0, and Smart Sensors are applications that require high reliability and safety. Additional security components can support this, but they themselves have enormous weaknesses, which additionally make the systems to be protected vulnerable.

In order for software to become SafeWare, a software that does not harm people in the broadest sense, it must fulfill its promised function, even in adverse circumstances. It must be secured against unauthorized access and protect the confidentiality of data. Aspects of reliability, availability, fault tolerance, security against attacks, and the protection of private and secret data must work together to make the transition to SafeWare.
