There is probably not one embedded system that is not built without open source software, 3rd party silicon IP or manufactured far from the design and distribution centers that make and sell these systems. Those who want to secure the design and delivery chain have no standard to use to address this. This has left develop teams to struggle with means to mitigate and address security risks when third party IP and associated components are integrated into today’s modern embedded systems.

Historical Perspective

In my early days of standards development, I was intrigued how a standard went from the development phase to use phase.  New standards were heralded with great fanfare but were also followed very quickly with books and other material to allow the “mere mortal” to understand what the IEEE standards prose meant and how best to use it.  Everyone had their favorite VHDL book and I think I have them all!
