Goals

Students should be able to :

  • determine safety properties for computing systems;
  • implement appropriate fault tolerance approaches depending on the nature of studied systems;
  • evaluate dependability attributes using analytical approaches;
  • improve system robustness by using fault detection and elimination techniques;
  • identify security requirements of a system;
  • enhance the security of a system by using adequate security protection means;
  • analyze safaty and security interplay.
