The human immune system protects the body from pathogens, like germs, viruses and other potentially harmful foreign bodies. If we become infected, our immune system is able to identify and attack the threat in an attempt to keep the body healthy. A new type of cybersecurity mechanism can be inspired by biology, mimicking the human immune system. When an SoC (System on Chip) is at risk of being attacked, this facility should identify and eliminate the threat. It’s essentially an attempt to investigate immune system strategies for SoCs.
