In recent years Multi-Agent Systems have proven to be a useful paradigm for areas where inconsistency and uncertainty are the norm. Network security environments suffer from these problems and could benefit from a Multi-Agent model for dynamic forensic investigations. Building upon previous solutions that lack the necessary levels of scalability and autonomy, we present a decentralised model for collecting and analysing network security data to attain higher levels of accuracy and efficiency. The main contributions of the paper are: (i) a Multi-Agent model for the dynamic organisation of agents participating in forensic investigations; (ii) an agent architecture endowed with mechanisms for collecting and analysing network data; (iii) a protocol for allowing agents to coordinate and make collective decisions on the maliciousness of suspicious activity; and (iv) a simulator tool to test the proposed decentralised model, agents and communication protocol under a wide range of circumstances and scenarios.
