In this paper, we introduce the notion of the critical size of a network, which is the minimum network size that needs to be monitored in order to correctly project the behavior of a fast-spreading worm in substantially larger networks. We provide a method for the theoretical estimation of a critical-sized network and validate it with simulation results. On the basis of the notion of critical-sized networks, we propose a logical framework for a distributed early warning system against unknown and fast-spreading worms.
