Autonomic Computing Applied to Network Security: A Survey
The constant increase in the number of computer network attack attempts has pushed researchers community to devise better security strategies. However, the rapid growth both in quantity and complexity of components and services offered in today's networks has increased the difficulty of administering these, making approaches based only on human interventions impracticable. In order to circumvent this problem, a modern approach called Autonomic Computing (AC) has gained attention from researchers related to network security management. AC has the essence of self-management and the implementation of its concepts for network security systems introduces the ability of self-assurance.
