D. Bothe, N. Pohlmann, A. Puesche, S. Sachweh:
In this paper we will provide anoverall concept ofa life-cycle management targeting software components in the field of cyber-physical systems(CPS)from theirInternet of Things(IoT)componentsto the back-end infrastructure. It combines the software development with the operational life-cycle and depicts a high level view on secured update mechanismswith hardware supported security features.We will describe a secure way of commissioning CPSdevices within a critical infrastructure, up to decommissioning these components, respecting given privacy laws to prevent unwanted data recoverybefore destruction
Cyber-physical systems(CPS)are part of our infrastructureandarecommonlyincorporatedin smart energy grids,water management, pipelining,industrial manufacturingand medical systems. CPSare a combination of physical, mechanicaland computational components that representa real world entity, e.g.heating pumps orwind turbines. This is accomplishedby incorporating sensors and actuators to process domain specific data. CPS that communicate over untrusted networkssuch asthe Internetcontain Internet of Things (IoT)components for communication.
