Gnutella-like Peer-to-Peer Networks, due to their extreme connectivity fluctuations, are highly robust against random failures. However, such error tolerance comes at a high price of attack survivability. In this paper, to enhance such attack survivability, we propose a new formulation used for defense against deliberately attacks based on two leading concepts: cost and load. The cost measures how expensive it is to cure an attacked or infected node, and the load measures how important a link… CONTINUE READING
