Fractal Network Security Theory: A Dynamic Theory to Better Explain and Predict Information System Network Security Risks
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
Monthly, even weekly, information systems security researchers seem to report thousands of Information Systems Network (ISN) node attacks and hundreds of new attack vectors. The current view of networking nodes does not account for their roughness and complexity. This paper presents a theory, Fractal Network Security (FNS), which is more dynamic and natural and the only theory addressing hardware nodes on ISNs.
