P2P botnets are a rapidly growing threat on the Internet. Having a decentralized control structure, a P2P botnet is very stealthy and robust to detect and defense. The paper studied the lifecycle of P2P botnets and developed a P2P botnet Steady-State Model, which helps understanding P2P botnets. The model can be used to study the behavior characteristics, which provide insight on possible defense or design tactics.
