The paper discusses some possible approaches to measuring security of timed and probabilistic models of systems. We discuss problems concerning the leak of information and the resistance of executions of security policies, and propose quantitative characteristics of security. Algorithmic questions related to the computation of these characteristics are formulated for finite transition models.
