Rule-based systems in networking control access for various resources and usually are statically configured. Dynamic service creation and preparedness for the unexpected require possibility to update rules at run-time without loss of performance. This is possible with our event oriented programmable model, where rule designer does not need to care about obsolete rules; conflicts between new rules and installed rules are resolved automatically. Synchronisation between rule designer and current state of installed rules is based on self-organisation property of FGK algorithm that can be used without any modificatioins.
