Dependability and security analysis of the industrial control computer-based systems (ICS) is an open problem. ICS is a complex system that as a rule consists of two levels - supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and programmable logic controllers (PLC) and has vulnerabilities on both levels. This paper presents results of the SCADA-based ICS… (More)
Failure Modes, Effects, and Diagnostic Analysis (FMEDA) is a popular technique for evaluation of reliability and safety of a given product. This paper discusses possible challenges in application of FMEDA and related analysis techniques to complex electronic products like FPGA-based platforms. Ways of tool support to make FMEDA automated are addressed.
This paper addresses the problems associated with dependability analysis of complex information and control systems (I&CS). FME(C)A-technique is proposed as a unified approach to I&CS dependability assessment. Classic philosophy is extended by introducing new items into assessed objects, relevant causes, assessed effects, assessed attributes… (More)
