Abstract: Cyber-physical and Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems operate in many important, safety-critical environments. Safety and security have traditionally been separate disciplines: safety from traditional engineering, security from computer science. The advent of cyber-physical systems and IoT that tightly couple computers and physical systems mean that we can no longer treat these topics as separate. This talk surveys the state of safety and security for cyber-physical and IoT systems and describes some potential solutions to component problems.
