The article is aimed at solving the problem of constructing and analyzing a compressed social graph, taking into account the estimates of the probability of a transition of the intruder's influence from user to user. The subject of the study are user accounts in the social network VKontakte as the basis for building user interaction and social graphs on them. Due to the peculiarities of the graphs under consideration, processing them is a very time-consuming task, requiring large computational…

Social Influence on the User in Social Network: Types of Communications in Assessment of the Behavioral Risks connected with the Socio-engineering Attacks

The results obtained, demonstrating the lack of differentiation of values within groups of types of relationships, are significant, but at the same time, a deeper study of the orders that can be traced in the responses of a number of respondents is required.

An Approach to Estimating of Criticality of Social Engineering Attacks Traces

The article proposes an approach to solving the problem of identifying the most critical path of multiway socio-engineering attack, understood as the most probable trajectory of the attack, which will bring the greatest damage to the organization.

An Approach to Quantification of Relationship Types Between Users Based on the Frequency of Combinations of Non-numeric Evaluations
