When you are in a Warzone, you can earn "Defender Points". What exactly are they? How are they computed? What are they good for?

This thread. does a good job of explaining how points are calculated.

In short it seems that badges and points just show how much / how proficient you are in the PVP Warzones. Points are awarded for hurting opponents, healing allies, and whether you are attacking or defending in the zone at the time.

I hope this go some way to explaining what you wanted to know :)

As near as I've been able to determine, you automatically accumulate defender points at a certain rate if you're standing near an objective your side owns.

Unfortunately, you don't get to see your actual points score go up so I can't tell you if they go up faster when you're also fighting enemies at the same time.

From the links I found, it seems that your defender or attacker points go up depending on what side of the mission you are on, how much healing you do for your team, and how much damage you do to the opponents. – Neil Nelson Dec 29 '11 at 13:43
