ABSTRACT
Dan Geer and Dan Conway discuss security as a subset of reliability. Security involves a subspace of reliability—only particular deviations—thus, security must be easier than reliability. Hastening over the delicate premise that the specification is always accurate and up-to-date, we can roughly align security with the subset of reliability where the cost of deviation per unit time is very high. This makes us wonder about measuring how risk tolerance scales and, consequently, where to point our thumbs.
