AMASS (Architecture-driven, Multi-concern and Seamless Assurance and Certification of Cyber-Physical Systems) will create and consolidate the de-facto European-wide open tool platform, ecosystem, and self-sustainable community for assurance and certification of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) in the largest industrial vertical markets including automotive, railway, aerospace, space, and energy.

The ultimate goal of AMASS is to lower certification costs for CPS in face of rapidly changing features and market needs. This will be achieved by establishing a novel holistic and reuse-oriented approach for architecture-driven assurance (fully compatible with standards such as AUTOSAR and IMA), multi-concern assurance (for co-analysis and co-assurance of e.g. security and safety aspects), and for seamless interoperability between assurance and engineering activities along with third-party activities (e.g. external assessments and supplier assurance).

The AMASS consortium gathered together in Trento on February 13th and 14th for the 7th General Meeting of the project. The meeting was hosted by FBK. Thirty-three people attended the meeting. They outlined the work performed during the sixth semester of the project, presented the ongoing work, and discussed the work until the end of the project. Both technical and non-technical aspects were covered.

This post summarises a larger one (by Maria Teresa Delgado and Gaël Blondelle; ECL) that has been published on OpencCert’s website regarding the security aspects to take into account in open source software (OSS) in general and in the AMASS Tool Platform in particular.
