Distributed business-critical systems are often implemented using distributed messaging infrastructures with increasingly stringent requirements with regard to resilience, security, adaptability, intelligence and scalability. Current systems have limited ability in meeting these requirements. This paper describes advances in adaptive security, security metrics, anomaly detection and resilience, and authentication architecture in such distributed messaging systems. Message-Oriented Middleware (MOM) enables distributed business-critical applications to exchange messages with other applications without detailed knowledge of their platforms and networking, thus increasing the interoperability, portability, and flexibility of architectures.
