    ABSTRACT: This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the Second International Conference on Autonomous Infrastructure, Management and Security, AIMS 2008, held in Bremen, Germany, in June 2008, under the auspices of IFIP. The 13 revised full papers presented together with 8 papers of the AIMS PhD workshop were carefully reviewed and selected from 33 submissions to the main conference and 12 papers for the PhD workshop respectively. The papers are discussing topics such as autonomy, incentives and trust, overlays and virtualization, load balancing and fault recovery, network traffic engineering and analysis, and convergent behavior of distributed systems.

    ABSTRACT: It has been shown that sets of convergent operators with a shared fixed point can simulate autonomic control mechanisms, but many questions remain about this management technique. We discuss how an autonomous agent can reason about whether its convergent operators share a fixed point with the operators of other agents. Using a concept of time based upon operator repetition, we show that a failure to achieve convergence within specific time limits can be used as a probabilistic indicator of inconsistencies in local policy. We describe a statistical inference technique that determines if an agent’s promise strategy is feasible. The strengths of this technique are that it is both scale-invariant and exterior to the operators whose consistency is being evaluated.
