Nature-inspired analogies and metaphors for cyber security

Elżbieta Rzeszutko , Wojciech Mazurczyk


The article focuses on investigating the most notable nature-inspired analogies and metaphors for cyber security. Particularly, it first shows how inspirations from nature had influenced the history of inventions and then it points out nature-based systems' features that are extremely important from the cyber security perspective. On this ground, the article describes cyber security ecology (CSE) in order to understand better the main actors and their interactions. Next, it reviews some of the recent and interesting nature-inspired analogies and metaphors for cyber security and provides an example of the generalised attack scenario.
