Initial Studies on Worm Propagation in Manets for Future Army Combat Systems

  title={Initial Studies on Worm Propagation in Manets for Future Army Combat Systems},
  author={Robert G. Cole},
This study presents an analysis of computer worm propagation in a Mobile Ad-hoc Network (MANET). According to the recent DARPA BAA Defense Against Cyber Attacks on MANETS (DARPA, 2004), ”One of the most severe cyber threats is expected to be worms with arbitrary payload that can infect and saturate MANET-based networks on the order of seconds”. Critical to the design of effective worm counter measures in MANET environments is an understanding of the propagation mechanisms and their performance… CONTINUE READING
