HITACHI Rail STS Chooses AdaCore’s GNAT Pro Software Development Environment for New Rail Safety Platform

AdaCore, a trusted provider of software development and verification tools, today announced that HITACHI Rail STS (Signaling and Transportation Systems) has selected AdaCore’s GNAT Pro Ada development environment targeting ARM processors for the modernization of its CSD (Calculator of Available Safety) rail safety platform, to ensure the safe circulation of trains on railway lines and metro networks.

Technical challenges of modernization
In March 2017, HITACHI Rail STS rolled out the interlocking management system of the Gare de Lyon in Paris as part of a renovation project commissioned by the French national rail company SNCF. The system, supported by a single safety platform, commands 170 switches, 115 light signals and 800 routes at any time and simultaneously, and thus requires a secure, reliable platform.

In 2018, facing the problem of obsolete equipment and the need for ever greater computing power, HITACHI Rail STS decided to further modernize its safety platform with the ambitious goal of developing a single platform that is also compatible with the constraints of rolling stock and ground signalling.

The first targets were the renovation of the metro lines in the city of Brussels with a Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) system, and the renovation of the interlocking systems of the first 280 mile-long high-speed rail line in France between Paris and Lyon.

HITACHI Rail STS identified 2 key areas of focus in order to achieve its goal:

  1. Conduct logic synthesis on the 68K CPU in order to house the “voter” function of the CSD in the Processing System part of this component, thus making it possible to reuse the coded monoprocessor production chain of the existing voter software,

  2. Port the existing application software, developed in Ada 95, to

U.S., UK and other countries warn tech firms that encryption creates ‘severe risks’ to public safety

  • Lawmakers from countries within the Five Eyes intelligence-sharing alliance have urged tech firms to develop backdoors that allows them to access encrypted messages.
  • In an open statement, seven nations said that unbreakable encryption technology “creates severe risks to public safety.”

Ministers from the U.S., U.K., Canada, Australia and New Zealand published a statement Sunday calling on the tech industry to develop a solution that enabled law enforcement to access tightly encrypted messages.

“We urge industry to address our serious concerns where encryption is applied in a way that wholly precludes any legal access to content,” the statement, which was signed by U.S. Attorney General William Barr and U.K. Home Secretary Priti Patel, said.

The statement, published on the website of the U.S. Department of Justice, was also signed by India and Japan, which are not part of the Five Eyes alliance.

Technology companies like Apple and Facebook encrypt user’s communications “end-to-end,” meaning that only users can access their own messages. It applies to written messages, as well as audio and video communications.

Social media companies should focus more on internet safety: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

Social media companies should focus more on internet safety: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

Microsoft Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Satya Nadella has said social media companies should pay more attention to internet safety.

Nadella said Microsoft would have applied some of its experience in internet safety to ByteDance’s video-sharing app TikTok, The Wall Street Journal reported.

“What needs to happen is real reform in social media where internet safety is a top consideration,” Nadella was quoted as saying by WSJ. Microsoft recently made an unsuccessful bid to invest in TikTok’s US business.

TikTok, which was banned by India in June, has faced increased scrutiny over privacy and safety of user data.

TikTok has previously been accused of privacy violations in the US. In February 2019, it paid $5.9 million to the Federal Trade Commission to settle allegations of collecting information of children.

Microsoft has experience of dealing with such content issues through its Xbox gaming platform, Nadella said.

Nadella is of the view that social media platforms should be better at self-regulation and be prepared for increased regulatory scrutiny.

“Regulation will never come fast enough to overcome some challenges,” the Wall Street Journal quoted him as saying. “Any product at scale with unintended consequences will face regulatory scrutiny.”

Oracle and Walmart have agreed to invest 12.5 percent and 7.5 percent, respectively, in TikTok Global, which would own the app in the US.

While US President Donald Trump has given the green signal to the deal, Beijing is yet to approve the transaction.

Microsoft CEO Wants Increased Focus on Internet Safety in Social Media

Microsoft Corp.


MSFT -0.81%

Chief Executive Satya Nadella said that internet safety should be a greater focus for social-media companies and that the software company would have applied some of its experience in that area to video-sharing app TikTok.

“What needs to happen is real reform in social media where internet safety is a top consideration,” Mr. Nadella said Tuesday at The Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council.

Microsoft during the summer made an unsuccessful bid to buy parts of TikTok and address what the U.S. said were national-security concerns about the app’s ties to China. The Redmond, Wash.-based company withdrew from the running after the Chinese government imposed export restrictions on the kind of software TikTok uses, leaving Microsoft’s cloud-computing rival

Oracle Corp.

in pole position to partner with the app.

Mr. Nadella said TikTok approached Microsoft because it required help dealing with the U.S. government’s concerns.

Consumer-advocacy groups this year filed a complaint against TikTok with U.S. regulators, accusing the social-media powerhouse of flouting a children’s privacy law and breaking a previous settlement agreement over allegations that it illegally collected personal data from users under 13. TikTok agreed to a $5.7 million settlement with federal regulators over claims that it illegally collected personal information from children.

Microsoft, Mr. Nadella said, has experience in dealing with these kind of content issues through its Xbox gaming platform of mostly young users and would have drawn on its experience there to work with TikTok. Although Microsoft is best known for business-focused software, Mr. Nadella said TikTok would have been a good fit because it also sells consumer devices, has a videogaming business and runs professional networking social-media site LinkedIn.

Mr. Nadella said that social-media players should do a better job at self-regulation and expect closer regulatory scrutiny now that governments are starting
