ABSTRACT:

As networked systems pervade every aspect of the modern information society, we are facing serious threats to the dependability of systems due to problems caused by accidental events such as human mistakes and physical malfunctions or by intentional behavior being either malicious or non-malicious. In this talk, we will discuss several challenges and give views of future directions in research on the dependability of networked systems toward an advanced information society.
