In an era of complex networked heterogeneous systems, simulating independently only parts, components or attributes of a system-under-design is not a viable, accurate or efficient option. The interactions are too many and too complicated to produce meaningful results and the optimization opportunities are severely limited when considering each part of a system in an isolated manner. COSSIM offers an open-source, highly-performance framework that can handle the simulation of a complete system-of-systems including processors, peripherals and networks that can appeal to CPS and Highly Parallel Heterogeneous Systems designers and application developers. The holistic approach of the framework is augmented with a security tool that can tap on all components and perform security and robustness analysis previously unfeasible.
