IME is enough to exclude a network connected modern PC from a safety 
critical application. An unpredictable glitch or failure of a machine 
which could cause death or serious injury is intolerable.  

Similarly for an application with significant resources at risk.  In 
banking for example. Similarly where scientific or industrial 
espionage is possible.

The only way to prevent illicit access is make sure there is no back 
door. Hence a FPGA based embedded system or workstation.  A 
workstation such as being developed by Wojciech.
