36. An Efficient Approach to Assessing the Risk of Zero-Day Vulnerabilities
Topic: Cybersecurity
Published: 7/31/2013
Authors: M. Albanese, Sushil Jajodia, Anoop Singhal, Lingyu Wang
Abstract: Computer systems are vulnerable to both known and zero-day attacks. Although known attack patterns can be easily modeled, thus enabling the definition of suitable hardening strategies, handling zero-day vulnerabilities is inherently difficult due to ...

39. Quantifying Network Topology Robustness Under Budget Constraints
Topic: Cybersecurity
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Assane Gueye, Aron Lazska
Abstract: To design robust network topologies that resist strategic attacks, one must first be able to quantify robustness. In a recent line of research, the theory of network blocking games has been used to derive robustness metrics for topologies. A netw ...
