Abstract

One of the goals of information security education is to develop students' skills to solve unseen security vulnerability with contemporary methodologies. This paper presents the teaching of a new algorithm on resource allocation of network attack and defense with mathematical programming for evaluating the network survivability. Adopting a scaffolding technique, students take up a role of a defender so as to minimize the cost of networking operation. Here, by transforming with the mathematical technique and applying the algorithm, gradient method and a proposed heuristic, to optimally solve it.
