A View on the Past and Future of Fault Injection (Fast Abstract)



Fault injection is a well-known technology that enables assessing dependability attributes of computer systems. Many works on fault injection have been developed in the past, and fault injection has been used in different application domains. This fast abstract briefly revises previous applications of fault injection, especially for embedded systems, and puts forward ideas on its future use, both in terms of application areas and business markets.
