Systematic Security and Timeliness Trade-Offs in Real-Time Embedded Systems
Real-time embedded systems are increasingly being networked. In distributed real-time embedded applications, e.g., electric grid management and command and control applications, it is required to meet not only real-time but also security requirements. It is essential to meet as many deadlines as possible, e.g., to avoid a power outage or loss of a life. It is also necessary to support the confidentiality and integrity of the data to ensure a potential adversary cannot read transmitted data or corrupt them without being detected.
