ISSRL Logo Immunity-based agents roam around the machines (nodes or routers) and monitor the situation in the network (i.e., look for changes such as malfunctions, faults, abnormalities, misuse, deviations, intrusions, etc.). These agents can mutually recognize each other's activities and can take appropriate actions according to the underlying security policies. Such an agent can learn and adapt to its environment dynamically and can detect both known and unknown intrusions.
