Multi-agent systems are currently applied to solve complex problems. From this class of problem the security of networks is a very important and sensitive problem. We propose in this paper a new conceptual model Hybrid Sensitive Robot Metaheuristic for Intrusion Detection. The proposed technique could be used with machine learning based intrusion detection techniques. Our novel model uses the reaction of virtual sensitive robots to different stigmergic variables in order to keep the tracks of the intruders when securing a sensor network.
