One of the great contributions to humanity was the discovery of the vaccine. Without adaptive immunity, one fourth of the human race would have been terminally ill.

Dr. Termanini is presenting a new paradigm that describes the concept, the architecture and the enabling technologies of a new compelling strategy to fight cyber-crime and terrorism. The designed system is a straight replication of the human immune system. It is called The Smart Vaccine™.  This “autonomic” broker manages all vaccinations under a grid-centric platform called the Cognitive Early Warning Predictive System™ (CEWPS), which offers the necessary grid services to support the early warning alerts, inoculation emergency missions, and logging all attacks and vaccination episodes.  

CEWPS is the immune system in the digital world. Systems can acquire immunity, like humans, through just-in-time vaccination. Once a system in immunized ahead of time, the vaccine will protect it from cyber-attack. The concept very simple: the Smart Vaccine operates under the command of experienced early-warning monitoring system. CEWPS is the operating environment that comes with an intelligent vaccination defense system, a virus reverse-engineering system, an attack prediction system, and an attack memory collection system. CEWPS is the integration of Autonomic computing, Grid computing, on-demand computing, Cloud computing, Semantic and Ontology engineering.

CEWPS is a quantum leap into the future of cyber security. If necessity is the mother of invention, then CEWPS is the solution to eradicate the epidemics of cyber malware.
