Background: The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has developed a framework for decentralized coordination based on the eusocial behaviors seen in ant colonies. The eusocial organization in the ant colony provides a highly adaptive common defense that achieves emergent behavior via stygmergic communication. We have applied these ant behaviors to cyber security in our Ant-Based Cyber Defense where humans and various software agents share the responsibilities of securing an infrastructure comprised of enclaves that belong to member organizations.
