Resilience – a new Security Paradigm?

Prof. Dr. Günter Müller, Albert-Ludwig University Freiburg, Germany


Security handles in an active mode properties that bad things from happening. There is no space for risks. A password should not be broken. In social systems the exploration of the "unknown" is the main objective, i.e. find an new friend or better offer From a security point of view there are no security properties known. The participant runs a risk. Risks is a source of progress, because something "Good" should happen. Resilience incorporates risk and specifies alternative paths, if a risk situation occurs. Resilience has many traces of security events, and can be specified for each of them, but not yet for the interrelationship. The acceptable traces are a member of the resilience set.

In 2011 the Technical University of Darmstadt has honored him for his contributions to databases, definition of heterogeneous networks and the establishment of IT-Security as an academic discipline with an honorary doctoral degree in Rerum Naturalis.
