Securely connecting the Embedded World

Evgueni Kolossov, R&D Director at PRQA talks about the importance of securely connecting the embedded world. He discusses how:

1.            Quality isn’t equal to security, you cannot rely on high quality code alone, addressing software security requires a combination of people, process and technology

2.            You need to detect and correct defects early in the development lifecycle stage to avoid expensive costs and delays

3.            You need to ensure your source code is reliable, safe and secure

He also gives an overview of the RePhrase (Refactoring Parallel Heterogeneous Resource-Aware Applications) project, an EU Horizon 2020 research project aiming to produce a complete flow of software engineering methodology, techniques and tools for developing data-intensive applications in C++, targeting heterogeneous multicore/manycore systems that combine CPUs and GPUs into a coherent parallel platform. One of the tasks is to create a safe and secure C++ subset of the C++ language based on best practice for multi-threading and parallelism.
