An Evaluation Model of Intrusion-Tolerant Topology Availability for Wireless Sensor Networks
Due to the node failures incurred by intrusion threat, a wireless sensor networks will initiate topology re-generation, which is based on correct availability evaluation of current intrusion-tolerant topology. The paper proposes an availability evaluation model based on semi-Markov process (SMP) to estimate topology availability of the intrusion-tolerant topology concerning the effects from intrusion behaviors. In view of some limitations of node computation ability and storage ability, this model reduces the complexities resulting from modeling the different intrusion threats and is set up on the uniform intruding results to simplify the model design. Using the DTMC model embedded in SMP topology availability is computed and finally we analyze the sensitivity to parameters in the model.
