|Resumo:||The pervasive interconnection of systems all over the world has given computer services a significant socio-economic value, which can be affected both by accidental faults and by malicious activity. It would be appealing to address both problems in a seamless manner, through a common approach to security and dependability. This is the proposal of intrusion tolerance, where it is assumed that systems remain to some extent faulty and/or vulnerable and subject to attacks that can be successful, the idea being to ensure that the overall system nevertheless remains secure and operational. In this paper, we report some of the advances made in the European project MAFTIA, namely in what concerns a basis of concepts unifying security and dependability, and a modular and versatile architecture, featuring several intrusion-tolerant middleware building blocks. We describe new architectural constructs and algorithmic strategies, such as: the use of trusted components at several levels of abstraction; new randomization techniques; new replica control and access control algorithms. The paper concludes by exemplifying the construction of intrusion-tolerant applications on the MAFTIA middleware, through a transaction support service|
