Policy-Driven Resilience Simulator
Next generation networks must be resilient to challenges, such as malicious attacks and operational overload, and adapt their operation accordingly. Resilience is the ability of the network to maintain acceptable levels of operation in the face of a challenge. Resilience strategies typically involve a complex interplay between detection and remediation mechanisms that must be activated on demand according to events observed in the network. For example, a number of detection mechanisms could be progressively employed to construct an understanding of a challenge, which could in-turn lead to the invocation of more-specific and improved remediation mechanisms.
