MISRA C – Recent developments and a road map to the future

Andrew Banks

Embedded Software Manager, Frazer-Nash Research Limited and Chairman, MISRA C Working Group

First published in 1998, and now at their third edition, the MISRA C Guidelines have become the de facto standard for achieving high integrity software in critical systems.

This presentation will outline recent developments in the Guidelines – covering enhancements for Security plus improved guidance for Compliance – together with a road-map for future activity.

The talk will also discuss whether (at least at the software level) we should still be distinguishing between Safety and Security or whether more generally, High Integrity Software should be the goal.
