Effects of A DDoS attack on a military operation

Kılıç, Lütfi
The goal of the present study is to investigate the underlying mechanics of a likely interaction between two phenomena, namely “War” and “DDoS Attacks”, using computational methods. For this, first, we study the characteristics of the Lanchester Combat (Kinetic) Model, the Kermack and McKendrick’s Epidemic (S-I-R) Model and the Mixed Epidemic Model. Then we propose a computational model and run simulations that simulate the influence of DDoS on the available combat model. The analyses and the results of simulated data reveal the potential influence of DDoS attacks, by providing insights about the cyber war effects on war and casualties that may impact the fighting sides.
