The use of Software of Unknown Pedigree (SOUP) in aviation systems presents uncertainty about its dependability to perform a critical function safely and securely. While some industries have established policies and best practices regarding the use of SOUP in safety-critical applications, these best practices have yet to be fully integrated in aviation. For this paper, we consider SOUP to refer to either a software item that is already developed and generally available but was not developed… CONTINUE READING
