SamSam: An integral SAfety / Security Analysis fraMework

Project Number: 628.005.015

Project Manager: Dr. Mariëlle Stoelinga

Project website:

The goal of the SamSam project is to develop an integral model-based analysis framework for Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety (RAMS) and cyber security aspects. Usually, RAMS and security are considered separately, which is inefficient and ineffective. RAMS and security are tightly connected and often lead to conflicting requirements: measures that increase reliability or safety can be exploited by hackers; measures that increase security often decrease the system safety or availability. The aim of the SamSam project is to combine two existing, prominent frameworks for RAMS and security analysis, (namely, attack trees and fault trees), and evaluate these via three industrial case studies (Oosterscheldekering, Maeslantkering, Zeesluis IJmuiden OpenIJ).
