Coalitions of malicious intelligent agents
by Sviatoslav Braynov
International Journal of Web Engineering and Technology (IJWET), Vol. 1, No. 4, 2004


Abstract: In this paper, we propose a model of pro-social and antisocial behaviour within and between agent coalitions. We analyse benevolent, selfish, and malevolent agents as generic types of pro-social and antisocial agents. We show that social attitudes must be well balanced in order to achieve stable pattern of interaction. We also provide a model of social interaction between coalitions. The model is used to develop an algorithm for detecting coordinated attacks in the area of computer and network security.
