A Network Worm Modeling Package for SSFNet

The SSF.App.Worm package models the spread of a network worm, such as Code Red v2 or Sapphire/Slammer, at a macroscopic level using standard epidemic models from biology. Unlike other models published in the literature, this model is integrated with a packet level simulator, SSFNet. It forms a 'two-tier' model where the large scale behavior can be modeled coarsely ('macroscopic level') and selected parts can be modeled in detail ('microscopic level'). Thus, it can for example be used to study worm interaction with the infrastructure, possible worm effects on the infrastructure and the effectiveness of mechanisms (in the infrastructure) to detect or combat worms.
