For the purposes of this report, survivability is the ability of a computer-communication system-based application to satisfy and to continue to satisfy certain critical requirements (e.g., specific requirements for security, reliability, real-time responsiveness, and correctness) in the face of adverse conditions.
Although the survivability of an enterprise may depend on the underlying security and reliability, the security and reliability at a particular layer may in turn depend to some extent on the survivability of a lower layer.
In an oversimplified formulation of the multilevel survivability policy, no system or network entity is allowed to depend on an entity that has been assigned a lower survivability level (unless an explicit generalized-dependence mechanism is established that permits the use of mechanisms of lower trustworthiness, as illustrated in Section 1.2.5).

 STSC CrossTalk - The Survivability Imperative: Protecting Critical Systems - Oct 2000
Survivability is defined as the capability of a system to fulfill its mission in a timely manner, even in the presence of attacks, failures, or accidents.
Survivable systems are envisioned as capable of adapting their behavior, function, and resource allocation in response to intrusions.
Survivability also places demands on requirements for system operation and administration to define and administer survivability policies, monitor system usage, respond to intrusions, and evolve system functions as necessary to ensure survivability as usage environments and intrusion patterns change over time.

 ARPANET - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, the later work on Internetting did emphasize robustness and survivability, including the capability to withstand losses of large portions of the underlying networks.
The ARPANET was designed to survive network losses, but the main reason was actually that the switching nodes and network links were not highly reliable, even without any nuclear attacks.
To build such a system was clearly a major military need, but it was not ARPA's mission to do this; in fact, we would have been severely criticized had we tried.

 Space Power Survivability   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Survivability and effectiveness in forces are qualities with strong policy, strategic, and tactical referents--in addition to the physical properties from which tactical and even strategic judgments have a way of flowing.
Survivability is always to be weighed on a range of criteria with reference to the functions of the systems in question, and in the context of the total war-fighting posture of the state.
Survivability measures apply to those parts of the system that are earth-based--the uplinks and downlinks between the ground and satellites and between satellites--as well as to the satellites themselves.

 Survivable Systems Engineering
Survivability is the ability of a network computing system to provide essential services in the presence of attacks and failures, and recover full services in a timely manner.
The FSQ project is defining rigorous engineering methods for developing complex systems that are characterized by shifting boundaries and users, uncertain functionality and security of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software, extensive asynchronous operations, unpredictable failures and compromises, and lack of visibility and control.
Threat dynamics is the study of the impact of an organization's threat environment on the ability of the organization to achieve its mission objectives.

 Survivability: Protecting Your Critical Systems
Survivability focuses on preserving essential services in unbounded environments, even when systems in such environments are penetrated and compromised.
Typically, for a system to survive, it must react to (and recover from) a damaging effect (e.g., the integrity of a database is compromised) long before the underlying cause is identified.
Survivability depends at least as much upon the risk-management skills of an organization as it does upon the technical expertise of a cadre of computer-security experts.

 Survivability Issues in Cactus
Survivability, the ability of a system to tolerate intentional attacks or accidental failures or errors, is becoming increasingly important with extended use of computer systems in society.
One of the special challenges of survivability is the need to work with existing systems - legacy or off-the-shelf - that were not designed with survivability in mind.
A survivable system is one that is able to "complete its mission in a timely manner, even if significant portions are incapacitated by attack or accident" [Bar96].

 BuildingGreen.com - EBN 15:5 - Passive Survivability: A New Design Criterion for Buildings
In December 2005 an editorial in EBN introduced the concept of “passive survivability,” or a building’s ability to maintain critical life-support conditions if services such as power, heating fuel, or water are lost, and suggested that it should become a standard design criterion for houses, apartment buildings, schools, and certain other building types (EBN Vol.
While passive survivability features can be incorporated into virtually any building, these features are most important for buildings that are lived in or likely to be used as emergency shelters: houses, apartment buildings, schools, hospitals, emergency-service buildings, and government buildings.
The next step in advancing the agenda of passive survivability should be a collaborative effort that involves the design community, code organizations, the insurance industry, and nonprofit social welfare organizations.

 Rational Survivability
Why survivability is more valuable over the long haul than GRC is that survivability is focused on assets not focused on giving an auditor what they need, but giving the business what it needs.
This caused those of us here at Rational Survivability HQ to bow our heads in a moment of silence for the passing of yet another topical meme and catchphrase that has now been "legitimized" by industry and thus must be put out of its misery and never used again.
Having just survived another annual PCI compliance audit, I was again surprised that the strict standards for securing servers that must be followed contain nothing specific concerning virtual hosts and networks.

 STSC CrossTalk - Information Survivability: Required Shifts in Perspective - Jul 2002   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Survivability, an emerging discipline, incorporates a new technical and business perspective on security, creating solutions that focus on elements such as the continuity of critical services.
Survivability expands the view of security from a narrow, technical specialty understood only by security experts to a risk management perspective with participation by the entire organization and stakeholders.
The survivability of an organization's mission requires that senior management and their organizations shift their thinking from an IT-based, security-centric, technology solution point of view, to one that is more enterprise-wide, based on survivability and that utilizes risk management approaches.

 OSA Survivability
A survivable system must be able to dynamically adapt to the threats in its environment to reallocate essential processing to the most robust resources.
We have developed a comprehensive approach to satisfying these requirements consisting of: a survivable object abstraction in which survivable services and applications can be developed; a collection of models describing capabilities, needs, and threats; and the architecture of a Survivability Service that manages the survival of systems constructed in accordance with the survivable object abstraction.
In the process of creating and maintaining survivable configurations, the Survivability Service needs to predict the likelihood that, within some time interval, a service will be damaged to an extent that it cannot provide the required level of service.

 BuildingGreen.com - EBN 14:12 - Passive Survivability
The conventional solution to power-supply interruptions is to provide back-up generators and adequate fuel to carry a building—or at least the critical functions in that building—during outages.
Passive survivability can be achieved by incorporating the sustainable design features that have been so actively promoted by the green building community: cooling-load avoidance strategies, capabilities for natural ventilation, a highly efficient thermal envelope, passive solar gain, and natural daylighting.
Another ancillary benefit of designing buildings for passive survivability would be a return to the regional diversity of vernacular architecture.

 Information System Survivability ENPM 808s
Survivability is defined with respect to the set of adversities that are supposed to be withstood.
Survivability is almost never addressed today, and security and reliability are typically specialty subjects, and then only in a few universities.
Ultimately, the demands for meaningfully survivable systems and networks require that considerable emphasis be placed on education and training of people at many different levels - including high-level definers of high-level requirements, those who refine those requirements into detailed specifications, system designers, software implementers, hardware developers, system administrators, and especially users.

The core networks forming the Internet started out in 1969 as the ARPANET devised by the United States Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA).
Some early research which contributed to ARPANET included work on decentralised networks (including damage survivability), queueing theory and packet switching.
On January 1, 1983, the ARPANET changed its core networking protocols from NCP to the then-new TCP/IP, marking the start of the Internet as we know it today.
