Call details
While computing is provided by the cloud and 
services increasingly pervade our daily lives, 
dependability, adaptiveness and security become a 
cornerstone of the information society. 
Unfortunately, most innovative systems and 
applications (Internet of Things, Industrial IoT, 
Smart Environments, Mashups, NewSQL) suffer from 
a lack of dependability and security, which is 
fueled by global scale, mobility and 
heterogeneity, 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 
infrastructures, light-weight virtualization 
(docker), fragmentation-redundancy-scattering, 
and trustworthy service-oriented and microservice 
architectures with explicit control of quality of 
service properties and monitoring of 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 and can itself be provided as a service (Control-as-a-service).
