Natural immune system has many features for inspirations to computer security. From this paradigm, a new multi-agent model for network-based intrusion detection system is presented. We briefly summarize the main mechanisms of immunology from information processing perspective and concisely review the related works. Moreover, some mechanisms, including cloning with hyper-mutation, affinity maturation, and stigmergy are incorporated to this new model for network intrusion detection. Its conceptual view and working mechanism are described, and its characteristics, autonomous, robust, adaptable, and lightweight, are discussed.
