Safety to security in emerging ubiquitous computing models

Abstract: The fields of safety and security have often intersected in the past, and are increasingly converging due to the rise in system interconnectivity, automation and dependence on the internet as part of critical national infrastructure.Research up until this point has mainly focused on safety in the context of large-scale industry, but with the emergence of ubiquitous computing models consumer cyber physical systems (CPS) are entering the home, and attacks on these systems are now being reported. This study evaluates the motivations for industry to implement consumer CPS and why they may want to include new safety and/or security measures. The evaluation of the ecosystem driving consumer CPS development has been used to establish cyber security requirements for this domain, with the aim of these requirements being to maintain safety levels in consumer CPS irrespective of new cyber risks having been introduced. Finally, the interpretation and implementation of the requirements for future work is discussed
