  • Abstract

    As today's technology becomes increasingly complex to manage, administrators of survivable systems will need to place increased reliance on tools to assist them. The selection and specification of these tools must be conducted in a reliable, systematic fashion. This paper proposes a lexicon of functionalities to characterize survivable systems activities, and an approach to analyze networked systems environments. Application of this analysis approach will assist organizations in establishing criteria for selecting tools, and to identifying requirements for new tool development to accommodate needs not met by currently available tools.
