A tool for monitoring and maintaining system trustworthiness at runtime


Trustworthiness of software systems is a key factor in their acceptance and effectiveness. This is especially the case for cyber-physical systems, where incorrect or even sub-optimal functioning of the system may have detrimental effects. In addition to designing systems with trustworthiness in mind, monitoring and maintaining trustworthiness at runtime is critical to identify issues that could negatively affect a system's trustworthiness. In this paper, we present a fully operational tool for system trustworthiness maintenance, covering a comprehensive set of quality attributes. It automatically detects, and in some cases mitigates, trustworthiness threatening events. The use of such a tool can enable complex software systems to support runtime adaptation and self-healing, thus reducing the overall upkeep cost and complexity.
