Network worm propagation is one of the most interesting and complex topics in the field of network security. The current study of network worm propagation is mainly carried out in the simulation environment since it is unpredictable and harmful to do the experiments in the real world. Simulation of network worm propagation needs to meet the special requirements of the large-scale individual, strong randomness, high concurrency. Compared with a variety of popular simulation software, NetLogo which developed by Northwestern University is chosen as the platform. The Simulation of classic worm propagation model, complex network and worm active/passive dissemination is designed and implemented in this paper. Moreover the evolution process can be configured, controlled and observed. The experimental results show that the simulation is better than the traditional MATLAB simulation.
