Abstract
In order to protect social network security from malicious attacks, we study the propagation of malicious software in wireless networks by taking on the attacker's perspective. Some topology control algorithms are designed for the development of effective attack strategies by a malicious mobile node based on the risk function metric, which indicates the network's vulnerability. Our approach, in order to investigate the extent of its attack potentials, could be used for the effective design of network countermeasures. The results of performance evaluation demonstrate that the proposed risk-based topology control algorithms and respective attack strategies effectively balance the tradeoffs between the potential network damage and the attacker's lifetime, and as a result significantly outperform any other flat and threshold-based approaches.
