Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 3975)


A security defence framework is proposed that offers capabilities for distributed sensing of security threats, centralised analysis and coordinated response. The centralised analysis component of the framework uses graph and evolutionary computing techniques to analyse distributed threats perceived in the network.
