Crash Internet

"A team of UC Berkeley and University of Southern California professors has received a $5.46 million grant to build one of the most realistic models of the Internet ever created -- and then wreck it with debilitating hacker attacks...

the team is trying to answer questions with major national security implications: What would really happen if the Internet were hit with an attack bigger than the Nimda or Slammer worms? Could we fight it with the technology we have today? Or would everything connected to the Internet, from private e-mail boxes to automatic teller networks to power plants, topple like a house of cards? ...

The new test network, called the Cyber Defense Technology Experimental Research Network, or DETER, will contain lots of routers and switches imitating the complexity of the real Net. It won't be nearly as big as the real Internet -- the goal is to eventually hook up 1,000 PCs -- but the researchers hope it will be comparable in behavior. ."
