From Monitoring Templates to Security Monitoring and Threat Detection

Amálio, N. & Spanoudakis, G. (2008). From Monitoring Templates to Security Monitoring and Threat Detection. 2008 Second International Conference on Emerging Security Information, Systems and Technologies, pp. 185-192. doi: 10.1109/SECURWARE.2008.58


This paper presents our pattern-based approach to run-time requirements monitoring and threat detection being developed as part of an approach to build frameworks supporting the construction of secure and dependable systems for ambient intelligence. Our patterns infra-structure is based on templates. From templates we generate event-calculus formulas expressing security requirements to monitor at run-time. From these theories we generate attack signatures, describing threats or possible attacks to the system. At run-time, we evaluate the likelihood of threats from run-time observations using a probabilistic model based on Bayesian networks.
