Model-Based Evaluation of System Resilience

John F. Meyer


The notion of system resilience is receiving increased attention in domains ranging from safety-critical applications to ubiquitous computing. After reviewing how resilience has been defined in various contexts, we focus on a dependabilitybased de?nition and a performability-based extension thereof. Modeling problems posed by the quantitative evaluation of system resilience are then discussed, along with some suggestions as to how they might be solved.
