During the ENISA survey study on 'Resilience Metrics and Measurements: Challenges and Recommendations' it was found that there is lack of a standardised framework or good metrics. Resilience was not considered to be a well-defined term and depending on the context, it encompassed several interpretations and viewpoints. Additionally, there was consensus on the fact that information sharing and sources of consolidated information on resilience metrics were not readily available. These challenges were recognised as serious obstacles towards the adoption of resilience metrics.
Addressing these concerns, this report represents an attempt to create a single technical source of information on resilience metrics, the taxonomies and the open issues. It puts together work that has been done in the areas of security, dependability and specific taxonomy research under the single umbrella of resilience. It is intended to become a source of information for the community interested on resilience and measurements, but also the cause to initiate more in depth works on the subject.
This version is a discussion draft! (for comments please see contact details in the report.)
