Diversity for off-the-Shelf Components

  title={Diversity for off-the-Shelf Components},
  author={Peter Popov and Lorenzo Strigini and Alexander Romanovsky},
"Commercial-off-the-shelf" (COTS) or, generally, "offthe-shelf" (OTS) software items are increasingly used in building systems, instead of only relying on bespoke software items1. This trend is driven by a wish to reduce costs, and by some hope that greater re-use of software may lead to higher quality (via more feedback from use). Thus, for instance, the U.S. Dept of Defence policy is now to encourage the use of COTS items. This trend extends to critical systems with high dependability… CONTINUE READING
