Defining an optimal protection strategy against viruses, spam propagation, or any other kind of contamination process is an important feature for designing new networks and architectures. In this paper, we consider decentralized optimal protection strategies when a virus is propagating over a network through an SIS epidemic process. We assume that each node in the network can fully protect itself from infection at a constant cost, or the node can use recovery software, once it is infected. We… CONTINUE READING
