TOWER: Topology Optimization for netWork Enhanced Resilience

de la Hoz, Enrique; Gimenez-Guzman, Jose Manuel; Lopez-Civera, German; Marsa-Maestre, Ivan; Orden, David

Nowadays society is more and more dependent on critical infrastructures. Critical network infrastructures (CNI) are communication networks whose disruption can create a severe impact on other systems including critical infrastructures. In this work, we propose TOWER, a framework for the provision of adequate strategies to optimize service provision and system resilience in CNIs. The goal of TOWER is being able to compute new network topologies for CNIs under the event of malicious attacks. For doing this, TOWER takes into account a risk analysis of the CNI, the results from a cyber-physical IDS and a multilayer model of the network, for taking into account all the existing dependences. TOWER analyses the network structure in order to determine the best strategy for obtaining a network topology, taking into account the existing dependences and the potential conflicting interests when not all requirements can be met. Finally, we present some lines for further development of TOWER.
