RAFIA – A Roadmap for Certifying Open Source for Use in Safety-Relevant Systems - Paul Sherwood, Codethink

Feedback form is now closed.
Many organisations would like to deploy open source software in safety-relevant systems, but face extreme challenges in demonstrating that the results would be safe and compliant with relevant standards such as ISO 61508 and ISO 26262. Paul will explain RAFIA, a methodology devised by Codethink and shared in public via ELISA which helps us to establish confidence in the use of open source software to support specific safety goals and demonstrate compliance with applicable standards. The component steps of RAFIA (Risk Analysis, Automated Testing, Fault Injection, Mitigation and Compliance) will be covered in detail with examples, as well as lessons learned by Codethink in developing and applying the process for an embedded Linux-based operating system supporting a safety-relevant in-vehicle workload.
