Certifiable Security with Open Source – ESC Minn.


Datalight Technical Product Manager Thom Denholm recently presented at Embedded Systems Conference Minneapolis. Download his presentation "Providing Certifiable Security with Open Source Software."

Abstract

Security is a growing concern for embedded designs, with 82 percent of our customer's new designs needing to protect sensitive data. Medical devices are tasked with processing, storing and transmitting sensitive patient data securely, protecting it from constant threats. Can you trust your embedded design with open source software?

Open source can be a viable solution for medical devices if the right methods are used from the design process. These include bulletproof testing and the MISRA C 2012 coding standard. This technical session examines one proprietary team's approach to an open source file system solution and weighs the cost of design and documentation against later bug fixes.

Takeaway

This presentation shares one proprietary team's approach to an open source file system solution and how it weighed the cost of design and documentation against later bug fixes. You will also learn why open source is a viable solution for devices in a variety of industries when the right methods are used from the design process, such as bulletproof testing and the MISRA C 2012 coding standard.
