Many critical activities rely on the correct and uninterrupted operation of networked Computer Information Systems (CIS). Such systems are however exposed to many different kinds of risk, and thus many researches have been taking place for enabling them to perform self monitoring and self healing to maintain their operation over time as specified by domain policies. This capability is often referred to as dependability. The DESEREC project has defined a tiered architecture as a policy based framework to increase the dependability of existing and new networked CIS, using technology-independant information which is translated at runtime to suit the managed components.
