Abstract

Motivated by the phenomenal capabilities of the Human Immune System (HIS) in defending the human body against dangerous foreign agents, this paper proposes an HIS inspired survivability framework to address security threats in Next Generation Mobile Networks (NGMN). In particular, the proposed framework incorporates two key components: namely, the attack detection framework and the security control framework. While the former is used for identifying malicious attacks on the network, the latter offers a competent technique for isolating and recovering from such attacks. Performance evaluation indicates that the proposed survivability framework is efficient in detecting attacks and quarantining the under attacked network segments, thereby increasing the survivability of the NGMN.
