Preface C omputational Intelligence (CI) techniques have proven to be flexible in decision making in dynamic environment. They typically include fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation, intelligent agents, neural networks, cellular automata, data mining, artificial immune systems and other similar biologically motivated computational models. The CI techniques seem promising to enhance cyber security measures, and have increasingly been applied in the area of information and network security. With

In order to protect large cyber infrastructure, we need flexible, adaptable and robust cyber defense systems, which can make intelligent decisions (in near real-time) in detecting a wide variety of threats and attacks, including active and passive attacks, external attacks and internal misuses, known and unknown attacks, viruses and spam, etc. Computational Intelligent techniques allow building efficient and robust decision support modules, providing cross-linking solutions to different cyber security applications.
