Recent active worm propagation events show that active worms can spread in an automated fashion and flood the Internet in a very short period of time. Our previous results show that P2P systems with large number of hosts can be a potential vehicle for the active worm attacker to achieve fast worm propagation in the Internet. In this paper, we propose a region-based active immunization defense strategy in P2P systems to fight against P2P-based active worm attacks. We develop an analytical… CONTINUE READING
