Position description

In SACSys, we address the core question of how to provide run-time guarantees of safety and cyber-security for time-critical collaborative adaptive systems. For achieving this goal, we will recognize and define continuous safety and security requirements with time-criticality features in adaptive systems, and design behavioral models at run-time to analyze and check conformance of the safety and security requirements. The analysis of such models will be executed in a suitable cloud-based platform with real-time guarantees, provided by novel approaches. The project will contribute by proposing an architecture and suitable models tailored for collaborative adaptive systems, building efficient analysis techniques suitable for formal verification of safety and security requirements at run-time, tailored for collaborative adaptive systems, and  developing methodologies for run-time performance evaluation, planning and optimization to deal with changes in the system and in the environment in a continuous and safe way.

As research outcome we expect publications, and (prototype) tools.
