Proactive Worm Prevention Based On P2P Networks


Kai-Gui Wu, Yong Feng


Vol. 6  No. 3  pp. 205-210


According to the features of worm propagation, a novel model for proactive worm prevention based on peer-to-peer (P2P) networking technologies is proposed in this paper. At first, we present the backgrounds and security issues related to P2P networks. Then, a structured P2P overlay network designed for worm prevention is specified. Based on that, we present the methods for Internet worm forecasting which is assumed to be unknown. Furthermore, we study effective strategies to restrain and eliminate worms under the model. We find that our proposed P2P-based worm prevention model can efficiently reduce the impact of worms on the networks.
