May 2002 White Paper
Robert J. Ellison, Richard C. Linger (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), Nancy R. Mead, Andrew P. Moore

In this paper, the authors describe their efforts to perform risk assessment and analyze and design robust survivable systems.


Software Engineering Institute


The complexity of today’s large-scale networked systems increases their vulnerability to intrusion, compromise, and failure. We are addressing the survivability of these systems by establishing new methods for risk assessment and by developing engineering technologies for analysis and design of survivable systems.
