A new paper in PNAS: Mitigation of malicious attacks on networks

Mitigation of malicious attacks on networks

I have wanted to write something like this paper for a few years now, and I think this is a particularly timely piece. In the face of Internet kill switches, and subsequent to multiple large failures in power grids, the international group of authors describe the ‘onion’ topology (TOR anyone?) and the fragility (or should I say the robustness) of networks. Great work, timely, and looks to be well done. Once again, I’m jealous.

Meanwhile, I’m adding in a picture here from what I’ve been working on this week – but I’ll remove most of the contextual information.
