The goals of this Clinic project are to research, design, and develop a host-based Artificial Immune System (AIS) for intrusion detection based on the biological immune system. The main areas of focus for the project are to investigate and improve the idea of self in an AIS for more accurate anomaly detection, and to allow for a dynamic concept of self without compromising security.
