Developing a Methodology for Deeply Embedded Security in Real-Time Systems

Embedded real-time systems generally lack software security support, yet these systems are increasingly deployed in a networked manner. In such systems, compromised systems may malfunction with potentially catastrophic effects. We propose to develop a methodology to integrate timing-based security into real-time systems at multiple levels, study the cost and benefits of each technique and hybrids, and transfer this knowledge to selected embedded application areas.
