Inter-domain Routing Stability Dynamics During Infrastructure Stress Events: The Internet Worm Menace
The Internet is crucial to business, government, education and many other facets of society and its continuing scalability places serious challenges on the routing system's capability to produce a stable view of the overall network reachability. Several global-scale Internet failures driven by the uncontrollable spreading of self-propagating code exploiting homogeneous security vulnerabilities have led the popular press to predict the imminent death of the Internet. The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in the frequency and virulence of such "internet worm" outbreaks infecting hundreds of thousands of Internet hosts in a very short period and sometimes disrupting the connectivity of some large sections of the Internet with significant damages in network stability. Although the predicted Internet col-lapse has yet to materialize, further analysis of the behavior and characteristics of wide-area network dynamics during these events is critical for the evolution...
