The fulfilment of dependability and security requirements is getting more and more important in the field of networked Information and Communication Technology (ICT) systems. The DESEREC projects aims at giving an answer to this need, by proposing a layered architecture in which a modelling framework is defined, capable of providing automatic systems configuration, as well as autonomous reaction to incidents of whatever kind. This paper presents one of the earliest results in the project, which comprises the modelling framework, the meta-models for operational plans and configurations, and the detection and reaction logic.
