ELISA Summit: OSEP Working Group Update (Video)

By October 26, 2022Blog, ELISA Summit

An estimated 185 people registered for the ELISA Summit, which took place virtually on September 7-8 to gather Linux community members and attendees from around the world. The event, which featured 15 sessions and 20 speakers, was open to anyone involved or interested in defining, using, or learning about common elements, processes, and tools that can be incorporated into Linux-based, safety-critical systems amenable to safety certification. Members of the ELISA Project community presented best practices and overviews on emerging trends and hot topics to using open source software in safety-critical applications and detailed working group updates.

We’ll be featuring event videos in blogs each week. Today, we focus on a popular sessions presented by Paul Albertella, Codethink. In his talk, he provided an update on the work of the Open Source Engineering Process (OSEP) Working Group, including the proposal of an ‘ELISA Safety Studies Framework,’ which aims to establish and document a common framework (background, motivations, terminology, and assumptions) for the published results of all working groups.

He explained the goal behind OSEP working group is to identify processes and techniques to apply safety engineering principles for systems incorporating Linux (and other relevant open source software).

The video depicts also about the OSEP background, approach towards functional safety topics and works such as safety studies framework, stack memory analysis using STPA and many more.
