Challenges and opportunities in deeply embedded systems security

Madhukar Anand, Insup Lee
2008 ACM SIGBED Review  
Deeply embedded systems present a number of new challenges and opportunities in security. In this essay, we introduce some of them and explore potential ideas for addressing them.  ...  Based on this model, in an earlier work [1] , we have presented an initial framework, taxonomy, and methodology for quantifying the privacy and security of deeply embedded applications, under the assumption  ...  The security challenge with respect to data in deeply networked systems is therefore to develop aggregation techniques that are secure, scalable and also ensure the desired level of privacy.  ...

A meta-model for software protections and reverse engineering attacks

Cataldo Basile, Daniele Canavese, Leonardo Regano, Paolo Falcarin, Bjorn De Sutter
2019 Journal of Systems and Software  
In related fields, such as network security, models exist that are consistently used in practice to assess the overall level of protection.  ...  These models are used in a more complex ecosystem where defenders can perform their assessment, implement their mitigations, and have a precise snapshot of the system to protect with ad hoc tool and language  ...  The potency is essentially a value stating how good the security of a protected asset is based on the value of selected software metrics.  ...
