Abstract
Software security represents a major concern as cyber-attacks continue to grow in number and sophistication. One security-weakening factor is related to the standardized software ecosystem that facilitates the spread of malware in systems that share common vulnerabilities. In this overview article, the main concepts associated with diversity and software redundancy are described in the perspective of improving attack resistance. The remarkable progress made in this area, where commercial implementations are now emerging, is also highlighted.
