Call details
While computing is provided by the cloud and 
services increasingly pervade our daily lives, 
dependability and security are no longer 
restricted to mission or safety critical 
applications, but rather become a cornerstone of 
the information society. Unfortunately, the most 
innovative systems and applications (Internet of 
Things, Smart Environments, Mashups, NewSQL) are 
the ones that also suffer most from a significant 
decrease in dependability and security when 
compared to traditional critical systems. In 
accordance with Laprie we call this effect the 
dependability gap, which is widened in front of 
us between demand and supply of dependability, 
and we can see this trend further fueled by 
volume, velocity and variety, as well as the 
demand for resource awareness, green computing, and increasing cost pressure.

Among technical factors, software development 
methods, tools, and techniques contribute to 
dependability and security, as defects in 
software products and services may lead to 
failure and also provide typical access for 
malicious attacks. In addition, there is a wide 
variety of fault and intrusion tolerance 
techniques available, including persistence 
provided by databases, redundancy and 
replication, group communication, transaction 
monitors, reliable middleware, cloud 
fragmentation-redundancy-scattering, and 
trustworthy service-oriented architectures with 
explicit control of quality of service properties 
and service level agreements. Furthermore, 
adaptiveness is envisaged in order to react to 
observed, or act upon expected changes of the 
system itself, the context/environment (e.g., 
resource variability or failure/threat scenarios) 
or users' needs and expectations. Provided 
without explicit user intervention, this is also 
termed autonomous behavior or self-properties, 
and often involves monitoring, diagnosis 
(analysis, interpretation), and reconfiguration 
(repair). In particular, adaptation is also a 
means to achieve dependability and security in a 
computing infrastructure with dynamically varying structure and properties.
