Embedded software has become a necessity in almost every day aspect of our life, ranging from vital sign sensors to engine ignition systems. Such systems are mission critical ones, thus high quality is a must.
This Special Issue looks at articles that investigate security quality aspects within the context of embedded systems.
Metrics provide one means for assessing whether software security objectives have been achieved. Considered security attributes are confidentiality, integrity and availability. Security metrics are weighted heavily towards the implementation phases, few metrics for requirements, design and testing phased of software development being available. Thus, the current issue explores the relationships between properties of source code and reported threats, attacks or vulnerabilities.
The topics relevant to this Special Issue on Security in Embedded Systems of JINS include, but are not restricted to, the following:
- Security in Embedded Software Engineering
- Security Verification and Validation
- Security Metrics and Measurement
- Embedded System Security
- Security as Quality of Service
- Security Verification, Evaluations and Measurements
- IoT Security and Privacy
Submission deadline: 15 January 2020
