The paper presents several validated principles of a meta-design support for end-user development of safe and secure embedded system networking. The devised approach offers a reusable framework for Internet-based embedded system applications. Such resulting framework provides a flexible development environment kernel that can be adapted for various safety/security critical embedded system application domains. It stems from the IEEE 1451.1 smart transducer interface standard that provides an object-based networking model mediating efficient and unified access to distributed components through both wired and wireless networks. The paper discusses this framework not only from the viewpoint of framework builders, but also end-user developers.
