Systems engineers are increasingly having to deal with the problem of how to make the process of designing and constructing dependable computing systems much more predictable and cost-effective. The great challenge about dependability is that it is a systems issue, since virtually all aspects of a computing system, and of the means by which it was specified, designed and constructed, can affect the system's overall dependability. This book explores links, and gaps, between topics that are often investigated separately, but whose interactions can be of considerable relevance to issues of overall system dependability. It contains material on all four of the main topics that are crucial to the successful production of dependable computing systems namely: fault prevention, fault tolerance, fault removal, and fault forecasting. Particular emphasis is placed on the problems of real-time and distributed computing systems. This book provides up to date information about the latest research on these topics from a team made up of many of Europe's leading researchers - it is based on the work of two successive major ESPRIT Basic Research Projects on Predictably Dependable Computing Systems. These projects lasted over six years in total, and each involved approximately forty researchers at any one time. The book contains a carefully edited selection from among the over two hundred published papers produced by the PDCS projects and provides a good general overview of the work of the two projects, as well as coverage of most of the projects' major research achievements.

Annotation The Office of Naval Research and the National Science Foundation established these workshops to determine the state of the art and to set the course for future research in three scientific communities: computer security, fault tolerance, and software assurance. Although these areas may differ in their emphasis, this workshop established a unifying theme to help coordinate research efforts. This book includes a proposed research agenda, which provides a brief distillation of notes from the workshop, as well as 14 articles covering topics such as error recovery in critical infrastructure systems, practical techniques for damage confinement in software, and diversity against accidental and deliberate faults.

DepCoS – RELCOMEX is an annual series of conferences organized by Wrocław University of Technology to promote a comprehensive approach to evaluation of system performability which is now commonly called dependability. In contrast to classic analyses which were concentrated on reliability of technical resources and structures built from them, dependability is based on multi-disciplinary approach to theory, technology and maintenance of a system considered to be a multifaceted amalgamation of technical, information, organization, software and human (users, administrators, supervisors, etc.) resources. Diversity of processes being realized (data processing, system management, system monitoring, etc.), their concurrency and their reliance on in-system intelligence often severely impedes construction of strict mathematical models and calls for application of intelligent and soft computing methods. This book presents the proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Dependability and Complex Systems DepCoS-RELCOMEX, which took place in Brunów Palace, Poland, from 30th June to 4th July, 2014. The articles selected for this volume illustrate the variety of topics that must be included in system dependability analysis: tools, methodologies and standards for modelling, design and simulation of the systems, security and confidentiality in information processing, specific issues of heterogeneous, today often wireless, computer networks or management of transportation networks.

Dependability has always been an vital attribute of operational systems, regardless of whether they are highly-specialised (like electricity generating plants) or more general-purpose (like domestic appliances). This volume provides a highly-readable overview of the topic, concentrating on dependability as a life-cycle management issue rather than as a technical subject. Specifically avoiding technical language and complex mathematics, it is designed to be accessible to readers at all levels. It will be of particular interest to project managers and software engineers in industries where dependability is of particular importance, such as aerospace, process control, and mining. It will also provide useful reading material for students taking courses with modules in dependability. Felix Redmill and Chris Dale have both worked in industry for over 15 years, and now run successful consultancy businesses.
