The next wave of highly automated and highly dependable automotive and industrial systems are driving a strong desire to deploy Linux in such systems. While dependability attributes like availability, safety and maintainability have already received attention in existing application domains like cloud computing the safety aspect is new. The safety aspect for Linux revolves around three key challenges. Firstly, the OS needs to provide specific services with sufficient safety properties to the safety application. Secondly, the OS needs to show intrinsic safety in a way that the OS itself does not become a source of hazardous operation. Thirdly, the OS needs to be able to interface adequately to underlying safety hardware such that safety properties provided by the hardware are enabled and maintained, and no new uncovered safety issues are introduced. The presentation will discuss issues and ideas around identifying sufficient safety properties, the challenges and potential solutions around intrinsic safety, and the state-of-the-art around safety enabled hardware and related integration needs in light of different application classes.
