While providing some resistance against cyberattacks, current approaches to securing networked and distributed information systems are mainly concerned with static prevention measures. For example, signature-based systems can only detect known attacks and tend to provide brittle, all-or-nothing protection. New work in survivability and intrusion tolerance focuses on augmenting existing information systems with adaptive defenses. A middleware-based survivability toolkit lets applications use network- and host-based mechanisms in their own defense.
