fault tolerance refers more to how gracefully a system degrades upon failure rather than the protection from improper or unexpected operational or environmental input.
- fault tolerance could be returning a useful error message instead of 500 internal server error if someone submits a form without any input.
- what you are looking for is a term describing what prevents malicious or accidental script injection using that form.
