Cloud Security: A Multi Agent Approach Based Intrusion Detection System


  • Department of Computer Science, Cadi Ayyad University, Marrakech, Morocco


The security is the biggest problem of cloud computing, it needs some Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSs) for detecting and preventing attacks in this environment. Multi Agents Systems (MAS) are distributed systems ideally designed and implanted as a set of agents interacting to solve issues that may exceed the capabilities of each individual agent. This approach provides an intelligent self-administered and fault-tolerant intrusion detection system with continuous execution time and minimal human intervention due to the use of Multi agent security systems has been monitored and automatically controlled in the cloud.
