Title : Mathematical modeling for the functional similarities between cyber attacks and biological infections
Abstract :

The constant which  needs to understand and develop methods to fight against the ever increasing nature and complexity of cyber attacks, has been a serious source of challenge for modern researchers. The interesting similarities between biological pathogens, their functionality, propagation methods and attacking nature with their counterparts in the computer world has often been seen as an enticing direction, that could possibly lead to breakthroughs in the analysis and development of efficient means to face the serious threat posed by such attacks. Mathematical models will be well suited to compare the functionality of diseases like measles, malaria, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, or influenza, in the perspective of cyber attacks, so as to develop an understanding of various useful factors like identification of methods to distinguish legitimate traffic from malicious traffic in a network, the impact of quarantining of infected nodes in controlling the effective spreading rate of an infection in a network, utility of patching in vaccinating uninfected nodes, along with other possible methods arising out of biological epidemic modeling.
