Security is usually not in the main focus in the development of embedded systems. However, strongly interconnected embedded systems play vital roles in many everyday processes and also in industry and critical infrastructures. Therefore, security engineering for embedded systems is a discipline that currently attracts more interest. This paper presents the vision of security engineering for embedded systems formulated by the FP7 project SecFutur. This paper describes a long-term vision on security engineering for embedded systems. Parts of this vision will be realized in the European research project SecFutur, but the scope of the discipline of security engineering is much wider than what can be achieved within one research project.
