Simulation plays an important role in security evaluation. They give us insight into systems' responses to attacks and countermeasures, but the current state of the art is not well developed with regard to revealing unknown vulnerabilities--software models are unlikely to contain the minute flaws that real code does (such as buffer overflow) that admit penetration.
