Abstract

Biologically-inspired autonomous and autonomic systems (AAS) areessentially concerned with creating self-directed and self-managing systemsbased on metaphors from nature and the human body, such as the autonomicnervous system. Agent technologies have been identified as a key enabler forengineering autonomy and autonomicity in systems, both in terms of retrofittinginto legacy systems and in designing new systems. Handing over responsibilityto systems themselves raises concerns for humans with regard to safety and security.This paper reports on the continued investigation into a strand of researchon how to engineer self-protection mechanisms into systems to assist inencouraging confidence regarding security when utilizing autonomy andautonomicity. This includes utilizing the apoptosis and quiescence metaphors topotentially provide a self-destruct or self-sleep signal between autonomicagents when needed, and an ALice signal to facilitate self-identification andself-certification between anonymous autonomous agents and systems.
