Abstract: Learning objectives: Comprehend the principles of security accountability and availability. Overview: Key principles of security accountability and availability are outlined and applied to application design, implementation and deployment. The impact of security audit and non-repudiation on accountability is reviewed. General concepts of security, and fault tolerance in particular, are discussed: * errors, * faults, * failures, * failure modes, * the Byzantine generals problem. Exposure to both security attacks designed to hamper the accountability and availability properties of systems, and available countermeasures is provided.
