Objectives: Consolidate and expand existing secure systems engineering technology building blocks and create a Secure Systems Engineering framework of methodologies and tools for unclassified space missions.The European community has invested in the development of a Secure Software Engineering Standard which assumes that Secure Systems Engineering is applied at Mission System level and flowndown to sub-system level. So far the Agency has been developing a number of Secure Systems Engineering technology building blocks, with the purpose of efficiently and effectively enabling secure systems engineering as defined in the standard. The tools have been designed to implement the secure system engineering processes in an efficient and effective way and thus allowing security to be addressed with a minimum overhead. SSE4Space will consolidate and expand these elements in a comprehensive and easy to use Secure Systems Engineering framework of methodologies, tools, and data. This framework will support all cyber-security related systems engineering processes as defined by the standards. The framework will be accessible through a set of connected software tools intended to be used by system engineers. The tools will support the engineers and provide templates and patterns wherever possible to allow for efficient and effective implementation of security processes. A low-complexity security certification concept and toolset will be developed. SSE4Space activity will also prepare for a future integration with the developments towards digital engineering, tying the security engineering information into the engineering model.
