Network Attack Simulation Model

In recent days, the primary threat to network security is a network attack. To tackle this threat, advanced security testing mechanisms are introduced. In that, network attack breach simulations are growing fast. This type of simulation simulates the strategies of attacks to analyze the actual behaviour and intention over network information. And also, it identifies the vulnerable points that attacker uses to launch the attacks. Overall, it delivers security warning services to authenticated users to prevent further attacks. By the by, Network Attack Simulation Projects measures the efficiency of the cyber security systems.

This page is prepared with the intention to convey more information on network attacks and simulation!!!

In a real-world environment, an efficient network attack simulation model endlessly monitors the networks, simulates the attacks, computes degrees of defensive techniques optimizations, measures the impact of network attacks, etc. 

To simulate the whole cyber system, attack simulators, and malware link with terminal devices. Then, it enables to verify of the network security framework by entity behavior, lateral mobility, malware broadcast, control, defect, commands, etc. On one side, network attacks aim to stop organizational operations. On another side, the aim of malware (worms, Trojan horses, and viruses) is to corrupt / destroy data and network shutdown. Here, we have given in what way the simulation of network attacks executed. 

How to perform network attack simulation?

  • Avoid the repetition of historical malicious attacks / incidents
  • Precisely build and simulate / emulate the model of network attack  
  • Update the exiting security controls (IDS / IPS) to enhance the system performance
  • Regularly monitor and measure the security mechanisms behavior
  • Identify improper network configuration and fix those gaps through appropriate actions

Prior to getting deep into the network attack, it is essential to know the types of network attacks first. Basically, the network attacks are divided into two major classifications. And, they are active and passive attacks where the differential aspects of these attacks are given below; 

Research Network Attack Simulation Model - Implementation Assistance

Major types of network attacks

  • Active
    • Get the network accessibility in the absence of legal user approval
    • After accessing, the attackers can encrypt, manipulate, delete, collapse, corrupt and destroy data with an intention to affect data for own purposes
  • Passive
    • Get the network accessibility in the absence of legal user approval
    • After accessing, the attackers overhear, monitor or steal the network data without affecting original data

In addition, we have also given the different categories of attacks. These categories specify the intention of the attacks in the network. For your information, here we have specified only 3 major attacks. Once you connect with us, we let you know the solutions for these attacks

What are the three major categories of network attacks?

  • Access Attacks
    • It aims to acquire the accessibility of the network internal system for performing malicious activities
  • Denial of Service Attacks
    • It targets to make network busy by creating heavy traffic for legal users. So, the users are unable to access their requested on-time
  • Reconnaissance Attacks
    • It intends to collect the useful information from network without affecting the network data

We hope that you are clear with the network attacks fundamentals from the above section. Now, we can see about what are the entities used in the network security model and what the attacker’s intentions are. In this model, the attacker chooses the vulnerable points to establish the attacks. Then, the attacks perform the techniques to provide network information to the attackers. 

How does network security model works?

  • Network
    • Firewalls
    • Machines
    • Services
    • Other security measures
  • Attacker

    • Apply attack techniques

To develop the above-discussed model, simulation tools are used. This tool helps to simulate network attacks in the huge-scale network. This huge-scale network will comprise 1000+ hosts, vulnerable points, applications, etc. for achieving the real behaviour of attackers. Majorly, the good model relies on computer intrusion for realistic attacks investigation. Specifically, we help you to understand the network vulnerabilities and transmission channels.

How does attacker involved in the network?

The first step ofproject execution after tool selection is data collection. So, here our developers have given you essential details about data collection

 Data Collection – Most probably, attacks are aimed to gain knowledge of the targeted network in terms of services, OS, IP addresses, transmitting data, etc. And, some of the main events executed on data collection are given as follows, 

  • OS Identification
    • By examining response of remote host for specific tests, one can identify its operating system
    • For identification, it utilizes “Neural network” and “Nmap’s fingerprinting” database to precisely relate the remote host response with already stored signatures
    • Further, it also include other utilities that depends on specific conditions
    • For example: SMP and DCE-RPC protocols identify windows based VMs   
  • Port Scanning
    • Monitor whole network to scan and get open and closed ports of deployed host / virtual machines
  • Network Discovery
    • Identify the network through suitable pre-determined techniques such as passive discovery, ICMP echo request, ARP, TCP connect and TCP SYN packets
  • Other Human Attackers Strategies
    • Utilize publically available information to gain interpretation of aimed organization. And, main strategies are as follows:
      • Google Hacking
      • Social Engineering

Now, we can see the overall steps involved in modelling network attack simulation.

And also, it figures out the risky point of organizational network with best-fitting Network Attack Simulation solutions. To the end, this model simplifies and automates the processes in the network.


           Before the simulation, applying analytical methods are a quite challenging job for predicting every attack. It takes large complicated computations to execute the analytical study. So, the Network Attack Simulation method is introduced to make this process simple and effective. It provides benefits in multiple ways such as simulating network attacks, predicts attack effects, set network configuration, building control systems, attack verification, redundancies, fault analysis, etc.
