With the development of the information and communication technologies, the concept of Internet of Things has been popular. Production facilities in factories are connected to the Internet to instruct productions and to manage performance of them. Resulting from Internet connection of production facilities, it is increasing the risk of cyber-attacks targeting to the facilities. This paper proposes a method to detect anomaly behavior of production facilities influenced by cyber-attacks in which artificial ant agents are employed. Computer experiments are conducted to confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method.
