Safety vs Security: A Tale of Two Updates - Jeremy Rosen, Smile.fr
When developing a product, safety and security usually go along nicely : Both want a product that has no remaining bugs.

However, once the product is out, the constraints of safety and security tends to be very contradictory. Safety tend to avoid updating the product, whereas security wants the exposure window to be as small as possible.

The embedded ecosystem always had a culture heavily influenced by safety, and this is one of the few places where product owners will say "no" to security if they are not confident that it won't compromise safety.

This talk will analyze the two philosophies, based on Jeremy Rosen's experience interacting with safety engineers, security officers, and various product owners and project managers.

Once the pain points are understood, the talk will discuss how to mitigate them, either through an architectural approch or by giving talking points to present the safety constraints to a security officer and the security constraints to a safety engineer.

Panel Discussion: Building Safe Systems with Open-Source Software - Kate Stewart, The Linux Foundation; Nicole Pappler, TÜV SÜD Product Service GmbH; Shaun Mooney, Codethink Ltd.; Christopher Temple, Arm Germany GmbH & Aymeric Rateau, Toyota Motor Eur
This panel will discuss the challenges on technology, software engineering, safety methods, organisation and ecosystem when building safe systems with open-source software.

Expect a refreshing discussion from leading experts:
- from industrial practice with Paul Albertella & Aymeric Rateau working in companies that build software for safety-critical systems.
-from safety systems and standards perspective with Christopher Temple from ARM
- from certification authorities with Nicole Pappler from TÜV Süd
- from the open-source perspective with Kate Stewart, driving efforts towards addressing safety aspects in the Zephyr project and other Linux Foundation open source projects.

In previous years on ELCE & OSS 2018 and other conferences, different speakers have provided different perspectives on the topic of safe systems and addressing the safety aspects in open-source software. This panel shall allow to present these perspectives in a common forum.

Enabling Linux Usage in Space Applications - Antoine Certain, Airbus Defence and Space
The space industry is a niche market with dedicated hardware components. Yet, the emergence of massive constellation push the space domain to use COTS hardware components. This new mindset is now growing specifically in the on board software development by using COTS operating system and framework. But this new paradigm raises an issue about safety and qualifications. How using Linux in such an environment?
The Linux foundation project named ELISA wants to answer this issue and we aim at contributing to this objective. While ELISA is focused on process and guidelines to enable the use of Linux in safety applications, we provide an implementation of Linux monitoring by using HMP targets such as Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale plus. During this presentation, we will describe how Linux will be monitored by another CPU to verify safety properties and explain how we expect to put Linux into orbit in the near future.
