35. 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 ...
