Summary

Internet worms have now become one of the greatest threats to the Internet community. Simulation is an efficient method to study the behavior of Internet worm propagation. All the current worm simulators can not provide the dynamic changing of topology and the dynamic routing mechanism, which badly compromises the fidelity of the Internet worm simulation. This paper presents a high-fidelity packet-level Internet worm simulator, called CDRWS (Congestion and Dynamic Routing based Worm Simulator). CDRWS includes accurate congestion and dynamic routing models, thus greatly improves simulation fidelity. Experimental results show the correctness of CDRWS, and also the effects of the congestion and dynamic routing models on the behaviors of worm propagation.
