Abstract

Computers are everywhere – may they be visible or integrated into every day equipment, devices, and environment, outside and inside us, mobile or fixed, smart, interconnected and communicating. Comfort, health, services, safety and security of people depend more and more on these “cyber-physical systems”. They combine software, sensors and physics, acting independently, co-operative or as “systems-of-systems” composed of interconnected autonomous systems originally independently developed to fulfil dedicated tasks. The impact on society as a whole is tremendous - thus dependability in a holistic manner becomes an important issue, covering safety, reliability, availability, security, maintainability, robustness and resilience, despite emergent behaviours and interdependencies.
