NOR-STA User Group

NOR-STA User Group is free and open for all NOR-STA users. You can join the group, attend the meetings and get access to the group resources.

The main goal of the User Group is to share experiences and best practices of using assurance cases and the NOR-STA platform.

We meet online on the second Thursday of each month. We have a specific topic for our discussion for each meeting. You can actively participate, share your opinions and hear about experiences of other members. You can also present your ideas, your approach for assurance cases and propose topics for discussion.

The next meeting: Thursday 9.06.2022 at 15:00 CET / 14:00 GMT / 9:00 EST

The topic of the meeting is Security Protection Profiles for systems components.

During the meeting we will investigate the possibility of defining a Protection Profile for a class of components of a security relevant system and then building the conformance argumentation template to be reused for the representatives of the class. These ideas will be demonstrated by referring to the Protection Profile of Protocol Converter Device (PCD) class of medical devices and the related conformance argumentation template expressed in NOR-STA. The Protection Profile of PCD is (intended to be) compliant with IEC TR 60601-4-5, which in turn is based on IEC 62443-4-2.

  • How to develop Protection Profiles for system components?
  • How to represent conformance argumentation templates in NOR-STA?
  • How to use the templates to maintain security assurance?
