Optimal response to epidemics and cyber attacks in networks

  title={Optimal response to epidemics and cyber attacks in networks},
  author={Noam Goldberg and Sven Leyffer and Ilya Safro},
This paper introduces novel formulations for optimally responding to epidemics and cyber attacks in networks. In our models, at a given time period, network nodes (e.g., users or computing resources) are associated with probabilities of being infected, and each network edge is associated with some probability of propagating the infection. A decision maker would like to maximize the network’s utility; keeping as many nodes open as possible, while satisfying given bounds on the probabilities of… CONTINUE READING
