ABSTRACT

In this paper, we consider the problem of searching a network for intruders. We propose a strategy for capturing the intruder in the popular interconnection topology, the star network. According to the proposed strategy, a team of collaborative software agents are responsible for capturing a hostile intruder (e.g. a virus). These agents asynchronously move along the network links and the intruder has the capability of escaping arbitrarily fast.

INDEX TERMS

Star interconnection network, Network Security, Intrusion capturing, Folded star graph, Spanning tree, Graph searching.
