: Exterior Security, Tampering
Failure in one component often starts the domino-effect and the failure is propagated to bring
about the entire system failure.
How can the system be made tolerant to this fault?
Structure a system so that an independent failure of one component will be detected quickly and so that an independent single-component failure will not cause system failure. Use multiple components to perform the tasks and report the result only if the result is similar for both the components.
