DoDD 8500.01E

Robustness - A characterization of the strength of a security function, mechanism, service or solution, and the assurance (or confidence) that it is implemented and functioning correctly. The Department of Defense has three levels of robustness: E2.1.37.1. High Robustness: Security services and mechanisms that provide the most stringent protection and rigorous security countermeasures. E2.1.37.2. Medium Robustness: Security services and mechanisms that provide for layering of additional safeguards above good commercial practices. E2.1.37.3. Basic Robustness: Security services and mechanisms that equate to good commercial practices. E2.1.37.

Security services and mechanisms that provide the most stringent protection and rigorous security countermeasures. E2.1.47.2. Medium Robustness. Security services and mechanisms that provide for layering of additional safeguards above good commercial practices. E2.1.47.3. Basic Robustness.

DSS Glossary

Robustness - Comparison and analysis of the relative threat (intent and capability to collect the information); vulnerability of the asset; cost and administrative burden of possible countermeasures; and value of the asset used to determine the appropriate level of protection to control and reduce the risk of compromise or disclosure to acceptable levels. Risk management allows an acceptance of risk in the security process based upon a cost-benefit analysis.
