Workshop on Recent Advances in Intrusion Tolerance and reSilience



Workshop on Recent Advances in Intrusion-Tolerant Systems 


The Workshop on Recent Advances in Intrusion-Tolerant Systems (WRAITS) was created in 2007 with the objective of continuing the collaborative discourse on the challenges of building intrusion-tolerant systems and innovative ideas to address them. As a technical area, Intrusion Tolerance is at the intersection of Fault Tolerance and Security. From a practical standpoint, Intrusion Tolerance combines software engineering, adaptive system development, advanced reasoning and analyses, distributed algorithms, and coordination and control of distributed mechanisms and resources. Intrusion Tolerance is tightly related to similar areas like Byzantine Fault Tolerance, Dependability, Survivability and Resilience.
