Can we rely on computers? The individual aspects of system dependability, reliability, availability, safety, and security are the factors that determine application success. To answer this question, the text explores the integration of these dependability attributes within practical, working systems. The papers in the book address the growing international concern for system dependability and reflect the important advances in understanding how dependability manifests in practice.
