High Integrity Software: Assuring security and safety for critical software applications

Software must be trustworthy when its quality and dependability impact the operations and processes of any critical application, system, or mission using it. It has to balance reliability and security with innovation and efficiency. Software vulnerabilities can cause physical danger, introduce new or increased costs, and bring additional risks around regulatory delays, mission failure, reputational damage, impact on share price, litigation or corporate liability. There is no tolerance for failure.

The HIS 2021 conference set to take place on Tuesday 9 November 2021 will focus on cyber safety for embedded systems (i.e. the confluence of safety and security), and how innovations in testing and the application of formal methods can help to achieve those objectives. Talks will address themes including the state of the art in software testing, using fuzz testing in a civil avionics security certification context (DO-326A), and applying innovative techniques such as formal methods to achieve cyber security.

This year, the conference will feature a keynote talk about the work of the National Cyber Security Centre in the domain of embedded and critical systems.
