Abstract

Computer and communication networks are becoming increasingly critical in supporting business, leisure and daily life in general. Thus, there is a compelling need for resilience to be a key property of networks. The approach we present in this paper is intended to enable the specification of management patterns that describe the dynamic intrusion tolerant behaviour of resilient networks. A management pattern describes a policy-based collaboration between a set of resilience mechanisms used to address a specific type of challenge. Much of the existing work on security patterns has focused only on the static defence aspect of a network. However, dynamic behaviour adds a great deal of complexity to network management, thus making the specification of patterns for this activity very desirable.
