Organizational Patterns for Security and Dependability: From Design to Application
Designing secure and dependable IT systems requires a deep analysis of organizational as well as social aspects of the environment where the system will operate. Domain experts and analysts often face Security and Dependability (S&D) issues they have already encountered before. These concerns require the design of S&D patterns to facilitate designers when developing IT systems. This paper presents the authors experience in designing S&D organizational patterns, which they have gained in the course of an industry lead EU project. They use an agent-goal-oriented modeling framework (i.e., the SI framework) to analyze organizational settings jointly with technical functionalities.
