Abstract. An approach is proposed to investigation of botnets and defense mechanisms against their impact. The approach is based on application of simulation modeling methods. A general formalistic model of botnet and defense mechanism, modeling environment, and experimental results are presented.
Keywords: botnets, attack model, defense mechanism model, imitation modeling, agent-oriented modeling.
