Welcome to SAFECOMP 2006, the twenty fifth foreign convention on laptop protection, defense and Reliability, held in Gdansk,Poland. because it was once tested in 1979 by way of the ecu Workshop on commercial desktops, Technical Committee 7 on security, Reliability and safeguard (EWICS TC7), SAFECOMP has regularly contributed to the growth in excessive integrity functions of data applied sciences. The convention specializes in the state-of-the-art, expe- ence and new tendencies within the parts of security, protection and reliability of severe IT structures and purposes and serves as a platform for wisdom and know-how move for researchers, (suppliers, operators, users), regulators and certi?ers of such platforms. SAFECOMP presents abundant chance to switch insights and stories on rising tools, techniques and sensible so- tions to protection, defense and reliability difficulties around the borders of di?erent program domain names and applied sciences. The SAFECOMP 2006 software re?ected during this booklet integrated 32 papers chosen from one hundred and one submissions of complete texts. The submissions got here from authors representing 26 di?erent international locations from Europe, Asia, and North and South the United States. The 32 accredited papers have been ready through specialists representing 14 d- ferent nations. The above information con?rm the huge and extending curiosity in SAFECOMP and the subjects addressed. this system was once supplemented through 3 keynote shows by means of outsta- ing invited specialists (not integrated during this book). The keynotes desirous about - terdisciplinary elements of dependability of desktops, useful elements of software of security criteria and new demanding situations of knowledge defense study and development.

Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics IX: Selected Contributions of the Ninth International Workshop on the Algorithmic Foundations of Robotics

Robotics is on the cusp of dramatic transformation. more and more complicated robots with remarkable autonomy are discovering new purposes, from scientific surgical procedure, to building, to domestic prone. in contrast heritage, the algorithmic foundations of robotics have gotten extra the most important than ever, as a way to construct robots which are quick, secure, trustworthy, and adaptive.

1. Example of Schneier style Attack Tree in order to analyze the system exposure, information about attacks, but, on the other hand, we need to evaluate the impact and the plausibility of such attacks. Let consider the example in Figure 1. It represents the attack tree of an hypothetical Denial of Service against a web server. As it is possible to see two are the main branches of the tree: one related to a resource consumption scenario, in which the DoS is obtained by consuming all the resources of the webserver, and one related to a code based vulnerability allowing to crash the web server, making it unreachable.

When attacking such a network, it is less likely for the remaining nodes to loose connectivity with other network elements.

This paper evaluates performance of scale-free networks in case of intentional removal of their nodes. The distinguishing feature of this kind of networks (Internet is an excellent example) is the power law distribution of node degrees. An interesting behavior of scale-free networks, if node removal process is performed sufficiently long, is manifested by their migration to random networks.
