Title: Simultaneous cyber attacks over networks
Authors: Peng Zhao - Jiangsu Normal University (China) [presenting]
Abstract: Modeling cyber attacks is a very attractive area of research due to its practical importance. However, most of the related research in the literature does not consider the scenario of simultaneous (or coordinated) attacks which in fact is an important attack instrument in practice. This is mainly because of the complicated evolution of cyber attacks over networks. We propose a novel model which can accommodate different types of simultaneous attacks with possible heterogeneous compromise probabilities. The theoretical results are further validated by the simulation evidence.
