Saddle-Point Strategies in Malware Attack

  title={Saddle-Point Strategies in Malware Attack},
  author={M. H. R. Khouzani and Saswati Sarkar and Eitan Altman},
  journal={IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications},
Given the flexibility that software-based operation provides, it is unreasonable to expect that new malware will demonstrate a fixed behavior over time. Instead, malware can dynamically change the parameters of their infective hosts in response to the dynamics of the network, in order to maximize their overall damage. However, in return, the network can also dynamically change its counter-measure parameters in order to attain a robust defense against the spread of malware while minimally… CONTINUE READING
