Enhancing Fault / Intrusion Tolerance through Design and Configuration Diversity

Stankovic, V., Bessani, A. N., Daidone, A. , Gashi, I., Obelheiro, R. R. & Sousa, P. (2009). Enhancing Fault / Intrusion Tolerance through Design and Configuration Diversity. Paper presented at the 3rd Workshop on Recent Advances on Intrusion-Tolerant Systems (WRAITS 2009), Jun 2009, Estoril, Lisbon, Portugal.


Fault/intrusion tolerance is usually the only viable way of improving the system dependability and security in the presence of continuously evolving threats. Many of the solutions in the literature concern a specific snapshot in the production or deployment of a fault-tolerant system and no immediate considerations are made about how the system should evolve to deal with novel threats. In this paper we outline and evaluate a set of operating systems’ and applications’ reconfiguration rules which can be used to modify the state of a system replica prior to deployment or in between recoveries, and hence increase the replicas chance of a longer intrusion-free operation.
