    I am short cash secured or stock secured options
    and I don't care if I get assigned
    and I do get assigned while on vacation

    Then is there anything I need to do? Is any interaction with broker required?
    Also are there any extra costs related to assignement?

    Nope. If you have enough cash so that you don't get a margin call upon assignment of your puts, there's nothing you have to do. There is a brokerage commission cost for the assignment.
