Thermodynamics equations have long been used to describe complex environments, so Ford applied them to computer networks. The result is the Therminator software, which helps Navy system administrators to detect and react to network attacks.
More details and references are available in this overview. There are also very interesting screenshots of the Therminator software, including one of the Code Red attack in progress, back in 2001.
