Autonomous machine systems (AMS) are typically software-intensive and highly connected systems. Thus, cybersecurity is one of the key aspects to be considered in their development. This report provides an overview of the cybersecurity related issues, some proposed solutions, as well as future development needs. It combines views from a technical cybersecurity perspective with a machinery safety perspective. The report is structured so that we first briefly discuss the relations of cybersecurity and machinery related risks. This is followed by an overview of standards, guidelines and best practices applicable in AMS design. Finally, cybersecurity in AMS design is discussed and recommendations are provided for defining relevant cybersecurity requirements.
