Survivability within a dependability framework and a virtual enterprise case study from the health care sector
Firstly, it documents new survivability research topics that can contribute to the protection of critical infrastructures and critical applications. As part of the preparatory work for the establishment of a European Dependability Initiative within the European Union�s (EU) Information Society Technologies (IST) programme, a thematic industrial workshop was held on March 18th, 1998 on the theme, Dependability of large-scale Infrastructures and Services in the Information Society. The workshop report includes the drivers, dependability challenges and benefits for a European Dependability Initiative from the perspective of large-scale infrastructures and services. The identified challenges and their link to survivability aspects are highlighted and the latter put in a wider dependability context. Secondly, it summarizes real-world critical application systems and their survivability challenges. The paper describes a scenario within the area of survivable information systems. It uses a virtual enterprise case study from the health sector.
