Safety certification is one of the essential requirements for software to be used in highly regulated industries. Besides technical and compliance issues (such as ISO 26262 vs IEC 611508) transitioning an existing project to become more easily safety certifiable requires significant changes to development practices within an open source project.
In this session, we will lay out some challenges of making safety certification achievable in open source and the Xen Project. We will outline the process the Xen Project has followed thus far and highlight lessons learned along the way. The talk will primarily focus on necessary process, tooling changes and community challenges that can prevent progress. We will be offering an in-depth review of how Xen Project is approaching this challenging goal and try to derive lessons for other projects and contributors.
