Network resilience strategies aim to maintain acceptable levels of network operation in the face of challenges, such as malicious attacks, operational overload or equipment failures. However, the manual configuration and deployment of ad-hoc security and resilience mechanisms is error-prone. In this paper we advocate that a new methodology is needed to support the design and evaluation of resilience strategies. To support this methodology we propose an integrated framework that combines (1) the offline evaluation of resilience strategies to combat certain types of challenges, (2) the generalisation of successful solutions into reusable patterns of mechanisms, and (3) the ability to rapidly deploy appropriate patterns when challenges are observed at run-time. The evaluation platform permits the simulation of a range of challenge scenarios and the resilience strategies used to combat these challenges. Resilience strategies that can successfully address a particular type of challenge can be promoted to resilience patterns. Patterns can thus be used to rapidly deploy resilience configurations of mechanisms when similar challenges are detected in the live network.
