AMASS created and consolidated the open source tool platform (OpenCert), ecosystem, and community for assurance and certification of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) in the largest industrial vertical markets including automotive, railway, aerospace, space, energy.
The goal for AMASS was to lower certification costs by establishing a novel holistic and reuse-oriented approach for architecture-driven assurance, and multi-concern assurance - e.g. functional safety and cybersecurity. Tools should have seamless interoperability between certification and engineering activities along with third party activities such as external assessments and supplier assurance. This will be achieved by building an open platform (OpenCert) which can also exchange information with commercial tools.
29 partners from 8 countries participated in the project. The four technical work packages architecture-driven assurance, multi-concern assurance, seamless interoperability, and cross/intra-domain re-use are supplemented with industry relevant case studies that tests and evaluates the methodology.
RISE participated in the work to develop a methodology and case study for multi-concern assurance. In the case study, we developed a multi-concern assurance case (argument and body of evidence showing that specific quality attributes are achieved) which shows that a positioning component, which can be used in applications such as automated driving, is both functionally safe and cyber-secure. These two quality attributes also have interdependencies making the assurance process complex. The work builds on our expertise in functional safety, cybersecurity, positioning, functional safety assessments, and development of physical demonstrators.
