Extension of the Behavioural Characterization of Proximity Malware in DTN
With the universal presence of short-range connectivity technologies (e.g., Bluetooth and, more recently, Wi-Fi Direct) in the consumer electronics market, the Delay Tolerant-Network (DTN) model is becoming a viable alternative to the traditional infrastructural model. Proximity malware, which exploits the temporal dimension and distributed nature of DTNs in self-propagation, poses threats to users of new technologies. In this paper, the authors address the proximity malware detection and containment problem with explicit consideration for the unique characteristics of DTNs. The authors formulate the malware detection process as a decision problem under a general behavioral malware characterization framework.
