Abstract

Unlike robust systems, anti-fragile systems learn to adapt to changes and reduce the impact of future incidents. A combination of software diversity and imperfect malware detection can help achieve networked computing systems that are anti-fragile to malware with unknown and time-varying spreading mechanisms.
