Paper Abstract

The application of computer network has mushroomed with the networking manufacture, networking instruments and etc. The ability of the production or system that can endures the breakage and the fault is a very important performance index. Especially today, the problems by reason of information security including hidden failures and defects in the system directly threaten the security and performance of system. This performance index to indicate these cases is the vulnerability. Networks vulnerability is defined as the abilities of network which to endure attacks, destroy and faults, also being called invulnerability of network. Vulnerability is often measured by the degree of vulnerability, which directly indicates the magnitude of invulnerability. This paper firstly introduces the conception of networks vulnerability, and distinct the analysis methods of networks vulnerability. The results of this paper are being looked forward to giving much direction on the system analysis and synthesis too.
