A method for anomaly detection is introduced in which ``normal'' is defined by short-range correlations in a process' system calls. Initial experiments suggest that the definition is stable during normal behavior for standard UNIX programs. Further, it is able to detect several common intrusions involving sendmail and lpr. This work is part of a research(More)
An artificial immune system (ARTIS) is described which incorporates many properties of natural immune systems, including diversity, distributed computation, error tolerance, dynamic learning and adaptation, and self-monitoring. ARTIS is a general framework for a distributed adaptive system and could, in principle, be applied to many domains. In this paper,(More)
A method is introduced for detecting intrusions at the level of privileged processes. Evidence is given that short sequences of system calls executed by running programs are a good discriminator between normal and abnormal operating characteristics of several common UNIX programs. Normal behavior is collected in two ways: Synthetically, by exercising as(More)
Natural immune systems provide a rich source of inspiration for computer security in the age of the Internet. Immune systems have many features that are desirable for the imperfect , uncontrolled, and open environments in which most computers currently exist. These include distributability, diversity , disposability, adaptability, autonomy, dynamic coverage(More)
—Existing multicore systems already provide deep levels of thread parallelism; hybrid programming models and composability of parallel libraries are very active areas of research within the scientific programming community. As more applications and libraries become parallel, scenarios where multiple threads compete for a core are unavoidable. In this paper(More)
We argue for space-time partitioning (STP) in many-core operating systems. STP divides resources such as cores, cache, and network bandwidth amongst interacting software components. Components are given unrestricted access to their resources and may schedule them in an application-specific fashion, which is critical for good parallel application(More)
An emerging consensus among policy makers is that interventions undertaken by Internet Service Providers are the best way to counter the rising incidence of malware. However, assessing the suitability of countermeasures at this scale is hard. In this paper, we use an agent-based model, called ASIM, to investigate the impact of policy interventions at the(More)
