Developing high-assurance architecture models, standards, validation and certification to assure dependability at multiple levels
The Open Group Real-time & Embedded Systems Forum brings together core technology suppliers, integrators, and customers to lead the development of architecture methods and models for multiple levels of assurance with sufficient evidence, connecting architecture to engineering to mitigate risk and ensure dependability, secure reliable standards based on Mils™ that build-in core dependability at the operating system level, and standard APIs that enable middleware and applications to interface with those core components in a way that maintains that same level of dependability and security.
This approach, called Dependability through Assuredness™, will ultimately enable customers and end-users that rely on mission and safety critical systems to reduce the risk of malfunctioning systems and security vulnerabilities in their system environments.
The Open Group Real-time & Embedded Systems Forum provides a vendor-neutral environment where member organizations can:
- Work with large customers, suppliers, integrators, and research institutes from around the globe in both the commercial safety-critical markets (medical, SCADA, Smart Grid) and mission-critical government markets (DoD, DHS, NATO) to understand requirements and promote standards based solutions in high assurance.
- Network with a world-class community of experts and peers and grow professionally
- Expand the marketplace for high assurance architects and for product solutions that are based on the architecture methodology, standards and certification programs developed in the forum.
We welcome the participation of all who want to influence the direction and effectiveness of The Open Group Real-time & Embedded Systems Forum.
