Building secure, enabling a system to tolerate subtle attacks, guaranteeing data integrity servers is becoming increasingly an unattainable goal. To capture the essence of survivability, we must first consider that intrusion is, in fact, a malicious fault that has two underlying causes:  weakness, flaw, or vulnerability or a malicious attack or act that attempt to exploit former. Therefore in this paper many threats and problems have been outlined and evaluated as a set of operating systems and applications that intrusion tolerance, recovery  (self-restoration) method is usually the only viable way of improving the system’s dependability and security in the presence of continuously evolving threats. “Intrusion Prediction” “Intrusion Detection” “Attack Resistance” and “System Recovery” are the major technology used for protecting information system. This paper presents survival approach for attacks from Web Services and other means. The tentative research shows that the proposed approach results in better performance of System, as well as increasing the capacity of diagnosing and reducing the service unavailability during an intrusion, because survivability is overall known as an approach to complete its mission in timely manner even in critical condition and in presence of intrusion or attack. This defense mechanism focuses on detect, prevent, tolerate and response, the attack symptoms as well as diagnosis of intrusion effects in order to perform a proper reaction only if attack succeeds. The research on survivability techniques in this paper focuses in providing a good level of services, even when the system is partially compromised. This research approaches to premise that a system’s architecture can ensure intrusion tolerance and meet the requirements of users. Overall, this work mainly elaborates the key problems of survivability research and its techniques.
