This paper presents the final results achieved within the EFIPSANS project on the topic of resilience and survivability in autonomic networks. In particular, the outcome of the investigation of the following issues is presented: adaptive level of recovery, unified architecture for autonomic routing resilience, synergies between autonomic fault-management and resilience in self-managing networks, as well as network resilience through autonomic reroute mechanism enhanced with multi-path node-to-node cooperation. The described ideas are supported by exhaustive descriptions and analyses featuring extensive validation results aimed to prove the applicability of the proposed concepts.

2. Setting The Context: Autonomics And The Efipsans Approach

The idea of Autonomic Computing and Networking has drawn significant attention within the past decade. The initial efforts were constituted by white papers such as (IBM White Paper,2006) and (M. Smirnov,2004), as well as architectures to enable autonomic behaviours like FOCALE (J. Strassner, N. Agoulmine, & E. Lehtihet,2006) . Thereby, autonomics was always understood as a control loop by which an autonomic entity (e.g. Autonomic Manager in the IBM model for autonomics (IBM White Paper,2006)) monitors a set of resources, analyses the acquired information, plans a strategy to resolve challenging conditions, if any, and executes the corresponding actions on the underlying resources.
