Pierluigi Assogna, Glauco Bertocchi, Antonio DiCarlo, Franco Milicchio, Alberto Paoluzzi, Giorgio Scorzelli, Michele Vicentino, Roberto Zollo
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper describes a security platform as a complex system of holonic communities, that are hierarchically organized, but selfreconfigurable when some of them are detached or cannot otherwise operate  ...  The higher the organizational level of the holonic unit, the more complex and sophisticated each of its characteristic features.  ...  Accordingly, we introduce here an advanced architecture for protection of complex critical infrastructures.  ...
