'Preliminary Contributions towards Auto-resilience' is a presentation for the SERENE 2013 workshop. An abstract follows:
The variability in the conditions of deployment environments introduces new challenges for the resilience of our computer systems. As a response to said challenges, novel approaches must be devised so
that identity robustness be guaranteed autonomously and with minimal overhead. This presentation (and accompanying paper) provide the elements of one such approach. First, building on top of previous results, we formulate a metric framework to compare specific aspects of the resilience of systems and environments. Such framework is then put to use by sketching the elements of a hand-shake mechanism between systems declaring their resilience figures and environments stating their minimal resilience requirements. Despite its simple formulation it is shown how said mechanism enables scenarios in which resilience can be autonomously enhanced, e.g., through forms of social collaboration. This paves the way to future “auto-resilient” systems, namely systems able to reason and revise their own architectures
and organisations so as to optimally guarantee identity persistence."
