In the real world of mission critical applications and systems that must not fail, there is an ever increasing need for effective security monitoring systems that are also designed not to impede the normal operation and use of heterogeneous distributed networks. The IAMS technology proposed here will be a next generation, distributed network security platform, that spreads itself across the enterprise creating a redundant security system that is highly resistant to attack. Due to the distributed nature, IAMS will make both global decisions as well as local decisions, even when a section is cut off from the rest of the network. It has the ability to communicate in a manner that is suitable for use on diverse mobile devices, such as cell phones and PDA s. It is deterministic, remotely reconfigurable, uses industry standards for communication and is an autonomic computing platform.
