A Critical Review of Fault Tolerance : Security Perspective

  title={A Critical Review of Fault Tolerance : Security Perspective},
  author={Anshul Mishra and Dr. Devendra Agarwal and Dr. M. H. Khan},
This Security is an important issue of any software system. Security factors play a valuable and appropriate role in software security estimation process. Software security is affected with security attributes as well as fault. An effort through fault perspective is to identify the involved factors of fault and its probable impact on design parameters to quantify security. Fault tolerance is taken as key concept to security assessment. It is to be identified that qualifications of security… 

Figures from this paper

Security Estimation Model: Fault Perspective
A multivariate linear regression is presented for establishing the security estimation model in terms of Confidentiality, Integrity and Availability as attributes of security criteria to evaluate security of class diagram.
Significance of Inheritance and Cohesion on Ambiguity
The impact of Cohesion and Inheritance on design quality of an unpredictable framework and its measures to quantify the overall quality of software are featured.


A Framework to Quantify Security: Complexity Perspective
A Security Assessment through Complexity (SAC) framework is proposed and relationship from design parameters to complexity and security is defined in accordance with its anticipated influence and importance.
Computational Evaluation of Software Security Attributes
An introduction to the computational security attributes (CSA) approach is provided, behavioral requirements for several security attributes are provided, and possible application of the CSA approach to support analysis of security attributes during software development, acquisition, verification, and operation is discussed.
Integrity quantification model for object oriented design
An Integrity Quantification Model (IQM) is proposed in this paper to correlate design integrity with complexity factors and has been validated with realistic (small set of) data to prove the significance.

  • 2004
An improved database encryption scheme with a consideration of fault tolerance and an authentication approach that can not only check the data integrity of a record, but also ensure the data origin of arecord in database systems are presented.
Software Fault Tolerance: A Tutorial
How hard-to-detect design faults are likely to be introduced during development and how software faults tend to be state-dependent and activated by particular input sequences are noted.
On the use of design diversity in fault tolerant and secure systems: A qualitative analysis
This paper explores and analyzes design diversity from a qualitative perspective, with respect to its fault tolerance and performance properties, and describes core concepts of design diversity such as non-diversity and diversity points, and provides quality measurements that help gaining a better understanding of how design diversity can impact the development of fault tolerant and secure systems.
Fault Tolerance & Testable Software Security: A Method of Quantifiable Non-Malleability with Respect to Time
In this paper, we demonstrate there exists practical limits to the recoverability and integrity verification (non-malleability) of software with respect to time a property to the best of our
