Topics and Goals:FOREVER is a one-year research project funded by the European Union through the ReSIST Network of Excellence. The goal of the project is to develop a Fault/intrusiOn REmoVal through Evolution & Recovery (FOREVER) service. This service can be used to enhance the resilience of replicated systems, namely those that can be affected by malicious attacks.

FOREVER addresses three of the research gaps identified in ReSIST D13 deliverable, namely: GE1 – Evolution of Threats, GA3 – Dependability Cases, and GD1 – Diversity for Security. In order to achieve the project goal, the work is divided into three main tasks:

-definition of the FOREVER service architecture
-analysis of how diversity can be managed
-evaluation of the FOREVER service and development of a dependability case
