Information Survivability: Required Shifts in Perspective To operate successfully in today's interconnected, globally networked environment, organizations must shift to an information survivability-centric perspective. New methods for commercial off-the-shelf risk assessment outlined in this article help produce architectures that tolerate sophisticated(More)
E ach of us defines information assurance based on our own perspective. For example, a security guard might define information assurance as security clearance and access to buildings or rooms. A network administrator might base his/her definition on passwords or permission rights. Personnel at a network operations center might define it as fire-walls,(More)
Rapid advances in semiconductor fabrication technology have resulted in an explosion of the number of components realizable on a Very Large Scale Integrated (VLSI) circuit. The design process which exploits this technology is extremely complex and must be supported by a project environment. To this end we examine the design process. The goal of VLSI design(More)
This paper addresses software engineering issues in designing software environments for managing the voluminous and non-homogeneous information generated during the VLSI design process. This involves not only a uniform logical framework within which to represent this information but also to provide a means to explicitly record the procedures used in(More)
