Abstract [en]

Due to the high data rates in optical networks,physical-layer attacks targeting service degradation, such as powerjamming, can potentially lead to large data and revenue losses.Conventional network survivability approaches which establishlink-disjoint working and backup paths to protect from componentfaults may not provide adequate protection for such attacks.Namely, the working and the backup paths, although link-disjoint,might both be affected by a single attack scenario due to specificattack propagation characteristics. To enhance the existing survivabilityapproaches, we utilize the concept of an attack group(AG) which incorporates these characteristics to identify connectionswhich can simultaneously be affected by a single attack. Weapply this concept to dedicated path protection (DPP) and developattack-aware DPP (AA-DPP) approaches which aim to establishAG-disjoint primary and backup paths in a cost-effective manner.We provide a two-step ILP formulation for the routing and wavelengthassignment of the working and backup paths, as well as aheuristic for larger problem instances. Numerical results indicatethat the proposed approaches provide dedicated path protectionschemes with enhanced attack protection without using more resources(i.e., wavelengths, average path lengths) than standardDPPmethods.
