Abstract : This project presents a comprehensive summary of the problems under study, our approaches, technical contributions, and accomplishments that are supported throughout the entire project period, April 15, 2008 to July 31, 2014. There are two time periods for this project, one is the original award from September 1 2008 to August 31, 2011, and the other from September 1, 2011 to July 31, 2014 as the supplemental period. In the original project, we addressed two thrusts, namely network vulnerabilities and recovery strategies in the aftermath of WMD attacks. More specifically, this research targets a set of fundamental issues to understand network response following an attack by WMD/WME: how to model a network topology in the presence of attacks/failures from random threats; how to estimate or predict network survivability to sustain critical applications; how to de-sign/form network architecture to approach the theoretical limits of network robustness; and how to inter-operate with other available/limited sources for fast communication recovery.
