"Understanding Security as an Engineering Discipline"


TERESA (Trusted Computing Engineering for Resource Constrained Embedded Systems Applications) plans to define, demonstrate and validate an engineering discipline for trust that is adapted to resource constrained embedded systems. We define trust as the degree with which security and dependability requirements are met.

TERESA videos present
the main concepts and
goals of the project.

TERESA has the following objectives:

  • Provide guidelines for the specification of sector
    specific RCES trusted computing engineering.
    Software process engineers in a given sector can then
    use the guidelines to define a trusted computing
    engineering process that is integrated with the software
    engineering process used in their RCES sector.

  • Define a trusted computing engineering approach that is suited to the following sectors:
    • Automotive
    • Home control
    • Industry control
    • Metering

A TERESA fact sheet presents an overview of the project.
