Abstract: Current network protection systems use a collection of intelligent components- e.g. classifiers or rule-based firewall systems to detect intrusions andanomalies and to secure a network against viruses, worms, or trojans. However,these network systems rely on individuality and support an architecture withless collaborative work of the protection components. They give lessadministration support for maintenance, but offer a large number of individualsingle points of failures - an ideal situation for network attacks to succeed.In this work, we discuss the required features, the performance, and theproblems of a distributed protection system called SANA. It consists of acooperative architecture, it is motivated by the human immune system, where thecomponents correspond to artificial immune cells that are connected for theircollaborative work. SANA promises a better protection against intruders thancommon known protection systems through an adaptive self-management whilekeeping the resources efficiently by an intelligent reduction of redundanttasks. We introduce a library of several novel and common used protectioncomponents and evaluate the performance of SANA by a proof-of-conceptimplementation.
