The Dependable Grids project at
the University of Virginia
developed innovative techniques and technologies for dependable grid
Grids face threats from equipment or software failures, physical
damage from natural disasters, and malicious cyberattacks.
Engineering a system to withstand all such attacks would be
prohibitively expensive and complex, so we focus on developing
a survivable system that provides one or more alternate
services in the event an attack or failure disrupts the primary
We conducted our research in the context of the
Open Grid Services Architecture,
the Globus Toolkit.
The project group at NCSA developed modifications to the
