Dependability Co-Design
 by Dr. Steven Dawson & Robert Riemenschneider.

December, 2001.

It is widely agreed that high levels of software system dependability can only be achieved if the system is designed with dependability in mind; security and other dependability properties cannot be ``added-on'' to an undependable implementation. However, most modern software development methodologies are based on the notion that quality is achieved through incremental improvement. The question then arises: Are these modern evolutionary methodologies incompatible with strict dependability requirements? Our answer is that they need not be, provided dependability concerns are addressed in a semi-independent, but closely coupled, fashion we call dependability co-design.
