Rail Transport Systems Safety, Security and Cybersecurity Functional Integrity Levels

Marek Pawlik


Observed growing changes in the character and severity of the risks in rail traffic safety and rail transport security are associated with present development of utilized technical solutions. New hazards are coming out, besides known ones, including hazards associated with cyber-crime. As a result it is fully justified to undertake works dedicated to collect and settle all risks associated with technical solutions using modern technologies for acquisition, computing and transfer of the data, which are vital from the rail traffic safety and rail transport security point of view. Article defines rail transport systems safety, security and cybersecurity functional integrity levels thanks to knock-out and differentiating questions regarding identified key safety related functionalities. Proposed methodology was used for safety and security verification of a chosen homogenous rail transport system separated from the overall Polish railway system. Results have shown discrepancies in utilized protection measures. Proposed methodology can be used for assessment of existing systems as well as for specifying scopes of investments both for infrastructure and rolling stock modernizations. Applicability range covers railway transport, light rail services, metro, urban rail transport systems as well as rail based transport systems using autonomous vehicles.
