Abstract [en]

With the advent of eMaintenance, there have been many newpossibilities and opportunities to increase the productivity ofindustrial systems, yet decrease resources and administrativecosts. To accomplish this though, it is often required to rely onsome network connectivity with the system of interest. It is thisnetwork connectivity capability that runs the risk of beinginterdicted, thereby providing a window of opportunity,commonly referred to as vulnerability, for a threat to exploit.This exploitation can occur in the form of a network securitythreat, information technology (IT) security threat, orinformation assurance and security threat. This in itself is notnecessarily new, but the applicability to eMaintenance is notwell understood. To gain a better understanding of thissignificance, there potentially needs to be a betterconceptualization of how to integrate safety and security at ananalytical level focused on the product or system designrequirements. To accomplish this, the first question that needsto be addressed is whether or not it is practical, or even useful,to pursue the idea of integrating safety and security for thesupport and protection of eMaintenance solutions? If the answerto this is yes, then what type of integration would berecommended? If the answer to the first question is no, thenwhy?There have been a number of comparisons and contrastsbetween safety and security over the last couple of decades. Inthe end though there still has not been a viable proposedconceptualization that can be utilized to integrate differentperspectives and practices in the safety and security domains.Today the most likely, although not the only, method to accountfor the integration of both domains is to conduct a safetyanalysis of a product or system of interest first and thenafterward, conduct a security analysis, or vice versa. Thismethod of development leaves much to be desired, and does notconsider the potential overlap of similarities between safety andsecurity. Nor does this method take into consideration that theinherent differences between the safety and security domainsare significant to the preservation of the original analyticalstrengths of both domains.Besides addressing the question of the practicality andusefulness of integrating safety and security, this paper will alsoaddress past research and noteworthy projects that havepreviously attempted this endeavour. Some general safety andsecurity aspects of eMaintenance will also be addressed.
