Automated Self-Adaptation for Cyber-Defense - Pushing Adaptive Perimeter Protection Inward
This paper presents a recently achieved increment al milestone on the long path toward more intelligently adaptive, automated and self-managed computer systems. We demonstrate the feasibility of integrated cyber-defense connecting anomaly detection and isolation mechanis ms operating at different system layers with two complementary mediation policy adaptation techniques in service of automatic remediation against observed attacks and their future variants. We describe a number of experiments evaluating the relevance and effectiveness of the integrated cyber-defense operation.
