Abstract. The use of artificial immune systems in intrusion detection is
an appealing concept for two reasons. Firstly, the human immune system
provides the human body with a high level of protection from invading
pathogens, in a robust, self-organised and distributed manner. Secondly,
current techniques used in computer security are not able to cope with
the dynamic and increasingly complex nature of computer systems and their security. It is hoped that biologically inspired approaches in this area, including the use of immune-based systems will be able to meet this challenge. Here we collate the algorithms used, the development of the systems and the outcome of their implementation. It provides an introduction and review of the key developments within this field, in addition to making suggestions for future research.
