Controlling Strategy For Propagation of Malicious Codes In a Computer Network

  • Subhashree Ram, Prasant Kumar Nayak, Debdas Mishra


In this article, we formulate a deterministic model for regulating the computer virus transmission in a computer network. The model’s basic properties are analyzed and the number of replications is determined through basic reproduction number. We calculate the equilibrium points and analyze the stability at these equilibrium points with help of basic reproduction number. Then, by conducting model sensitivity analysis, we analyze different properties with change of parameters. We use MALAB tools to present the graphical interpretations for simulating the model.

Keywords- epidemic model, basic reproduction number, stability analysis, sensitivity analysis.
