Functional Security of Software Systems.

Original observations, basic notions and factors, characteristics of objects and environment are considered, for which functional security of program facilities and systems should be provided. Recourses are analyzed that are needed for functional security provision, and causes and statistical characteristics of software complexes defects and bugs are studied. Principles of organization and planning of requirements development for functional security quality of software facilities are described. A significant attention is paid for technological processes, development and documentation of software facilities that are embedded into a system, and also for standards contents that regulate their functional security during full life cycle. Recommendations for verification of requirements for software facilities functional security, for modules and software components testing, and for qualification testing of secure software complexes are presented. Methods for functional security enhancement by operational control and recovery (restart) of software facilities components and systems, and also methods for functional security improving and configuration management are recommended. A special attention is focused on testing, estimation and validation of complex software facilities functional security during a certification process.

The book is recommended for specialists supported a life cycle of complex software facilities and systems with strong requirements for functional security and reliability. It may be useful for members of research and development projects, undergraduate and postgraduate students, related with complex secure systems and high-quality software facilities design and development.
