Albeanu G, Madsen H, and Averian A. On the influence of software vulnerabilities on software reliability. The case of open source component based software. In R. Bris, C. Guedes Soares, S.

Abstract: This paper addresses the influence of software vulnerability on software reliability in the case of the component-based software design methodology. The collected data were analyzed using some probabilistic models. The experiments are based on DISTeFAX: a distributed faxing system designed and implemented as a secure software system facilitating the processing of meta-faxes (multipart documents obtained from individual files generated by different applications like text editors, spread sheet processors, image processing applications, etc.). The analyze using SMERF software established that for the sequence of failure data related to the DISTeFAX project, the Musa’s Logarithmic model was ranked first (related to accuracy, bias, noise and trend) but not recommended as the best for fitting when consider the Kolmogorov distance. In this case only Musa’s Basic model and the Non-homogeneous Poisson model are adequate for fitting.

Keywords: software vulnerabilities, software reliability, open source component based software
