Abstract

See full text

A rule engine receives data flows. The data flows are between a network and an application. The rule engine determines data flow information and in dependence on the information performs an action with respect to said flow. A controller provides control information to the rule engine to define one or more actions. The communications between said rule engine and said controller are secure.
