Traditionally, safety-critical systems isolate the safety-related functions  ideally into a simple node, exclusively covering a minimal and simple  functionality. Such safe computing nodes traditionally run on "simple"  single-core processors and use a minimum software stack. Contemporary single core CPUs are no longer simple and the growing complexity of systems, e.g. including network security requirements, complex control  algorithms and even cognitive functions for autonomy raise the complexity  beyond what small and simple single core CPUs can handle. This traditional  approach to functional safety is changing as nicely expressed by NASA  procedural requirements for safety related software:
