AbstractSimulating network experiments is critical for inferring insights on the large scale Internet attacks and defences. In this work, we develop a new network simulator for evaluating routing attacks and defences. We compare it to existing simulators demonstrating better performance and higher accuracy in the evaluation of attacks and defences. We apply our simulator for evaluating hijacks of 1M-top Alexa domains and show that about 50% of the targets are vulnerable.
