System design where cyber-physical applications are securely coordinated from the cloud may simplify the development process. However, all private data are then pushed to these remote “swamps,” and human users lose actual control as compared to when the applications are executed directly on their devices. At the same time, computing at the network edge is still lacking support for such straightforward multidevice development, which is essential for a wide range of dynamic cyber-physical services. This article proposes a novel programming model as well as contributes the associated secure-connectivity framework for leveraging safe coordinated device proximity as an additional degree of freedom between the remote cloud and the safety-critical network edge, especially under uncertain environment constraints. This article is part of a special issue on Software Safety and Security Risk Mitigation in Cyber-physical Systems.
