Cyber security and functional safety – a couple with a complicated relationship
For automotive systems, safety and security are design goals with synergies but also fundamental conflicts. For simple control systems the safe state can also be used as secure state for being robust against attacks. However for automated driving systems, availability needs to be fail operational instead of fail safe. This talk will address this topic on different system levels for automotive microcontrollers.
Albrecht Mayer is Distinguished Engineer at the Infineon microcontroller business line. In the last 15 years he has been working on the AURIX multi-core microcontroller family architecture which targets a broad range of applications, fulfilling highest requirements for safety, security, real-time behavior and availability under harsh conditions. His main responsibility are the debug, trace, measurement and calibration solutions, but he worked also on other aspects like the family architecture, high availability measures and the security architecture. He has many publications and authored more than 50 patents. Dr. Mayer received a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Munich about a multi-core architecture.
