Nowadays, critical infrastructures are highly integrated with state-of-the-art information and communication technologies to enhance their efficiency. Due to far reaching societal and economic impacts caused by failure or malfunction of critical infrastructures, cyber security and self-healing capability are among their salient features. A new security paradigm referred to as intrusion tolerance is envisaged to complement the existing security solutions (i.e., intrusion prevention and detection), as well as to provide availability and self-healing capabilities, particularly for the control centers as the key components of critical infrastructures.
