Re: [SystemSafety] Qualification of libraries

What’s the standard used for these certifications? Not 61508 or such, but for the certification activity per se (ISO 17xxx).

How is the credibility of the certificate assessed ?

I seem to remember that the IEC 61508 certification evidence for the Wind River VxWorks Cert Platform includes the C library, and that the same is true for the IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 certification evidence for Mentor Graphics Nucleus SafetyCert. The same may be true of other real time operating systems targeted at safety-critical applications. I'm not aware of any stand-alone C libraries that come with IEC 61508 or ISO 26262 certification evidence, but that's not to say there aren't any.

Dear Safety Experts,

I'm wondering if there are tool providers who support ISO26262 or IEC 61508 compliant qualification of libraries such as the C/C++ standard libraries; this could be for instance in the form of or as a part of a compiler qualification kit. I'd appreciate any kind of hints and comments.

Many thanks in advance!
