"This thesis explores the possibility of using biological models to create an intrusion detection system for a distributed application. In an attempt to try and achieve this goal, a C++ program was created that simulates an artificial immune system of white blood cells and other detectors found in the human body. Different trace files from a distributed system were passed through the program in an attempt to detect intrusive behavior. In order to consider the problem of possible ordering of concurrent events in the distributed application, a localized sliding lattice is constructed that allows the program to consider any ordering of events. While the artificial immune system was able to find a significant percentage of the intrusions in the trace files, it mislabeled a great deal of non-intrusive behavior"--Abstract, page iii.
