Detecting Threatening Behavior Using Bayesian Networks

Laskey et. al. present Multi-Entity Bayesian Networks (MEBN) as a tool for intrusion detection. A MEBN is a Bayesian Network built from fragments (MFrags) such that the same fragment may appear multiple times representing different entities in the "real" world. MFrags have a set of resident random variables (defined by the MFrag), input random variables (which condition the resident ones) and context random variables (whose value must be true for the MFrag to apply. The variables take arguments called entities. IET has implemented MEBNs in their Quiddity*Modeler (a frame based system augmented with uncertainty).

The paper provides a brief overview of MEBNs and then spends the bulk of its time on a particular example of intrusion detection and an experiment using Quiddity*Modeler. There is a reference to another paper MEBNs for Situation Assessment which doesn't seem to be online.
