Abstract

Starfish: Scalable Survivable Middleware

Starfish is a new system currently under development that provides intrusion detection and intrusion tolerance for middleware applications operating in a distributed asynchronous system.The Starfish system contains a central, highly secure and tightly coupled core. This core is augmented by "arms" that are less tightly coupled and that have less stringent security guarantees,each of which can be removed from the core if a significant security breach occurs. New arms can be "grown" as needed.
