    RTFM-lang static semantics for systems with mixed criticality2014In: Ada User Journal, ISSN 1381-6551, Vol. 35, no 2, p. 128-132Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In an embedded system, functions often operate under different requirements. In the extreme, a failing safety critical function may cause collateral damage (and hence consider to be a system failure) while non critical functions affect only the quality of service. Approaches by partitioning the system's functions into sandboxes require virtualization mechanisms by the underlying platform and thus prohibit deployment to the bulk of microcontroller based systems. In this paper we discuss an alternative approach based on static semantic analysis performed directly on the system specification expressed in the form of an object oriented (00) model in the experimental language RTFM-lang. This would allow to (at compile time) to discriminate in between critical and non-critical functions, and assign these (by means of statically checkable typing rules) appropriate access rights. In particular, one can imagine dynamic memory allocations to be allowed only in non-critical functions, while on the other hand, direct interaction with the environment may be restricted to the critical parts. With respect to scheduling, a static task and resource configuration allows e.g. Stack Resource Policy (SRP) based approaches to be deployed. In this paper we discuss how this can be achieved in a mixed critical setting.

    Concurrent Reactive Objects in Rust Secure by Construction2019In: Ada User Journal, ISSN 1381-6551, Vol. 40, no 1Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Embedded systems of the IoT era face the software developer with requirements on a mix of resource efficiency, real-time, safety, and security properties. As of today, C/C++ programming dominates the mainstream of embedded development, which leaves ensuring system wide properties mainly at the hands of the programmer. We adopt a programming model and accompanying framework implementation that leverages on the memory model, type system, and zero-cost abstractions of the Rust language. Based on the outset of reactivity, a software developer models a system in terms of Concurrent Reactive Objects (CROs) hierarchically grouped into Concurrent Reactive Components (CRCs) with communication captured in terms of time constrained synchronous and asynchronous messages. The developer declaratively defines the system, from which a static system instance can be derived and analyzed. A system designed in the proposed CRC framework has the outstanding properties of efficient, memory safe, race-, and deadlock-free preemptive (single-core) execution with predictable real-time properties. In this paper, we further explore the Rust memory model and the CRC framework towards systems being secure by construction. In particular, we show that permissions granted can be freely delegated without any risk of leakage outside the intended set of components. Moreover, the model guarantees permissions to be authentic, i.e., neither manipulated nor faked. Finally, the model guarantees permissions to be temporal, i.e., never to outlive the granted authority. We believe and argue that these properties offer the fundamental primitives for building secure by construction applications and demonstrate its feasibility on a small case study, a wireless autonomous system based on an ARM Cortex M3 target.
