Hi Shahadat,
I did not find a tool for such problem too, but it can be easily implemented writing few line of code in R using the igraph package. I considered different schemes of attack, different performance indicators and many centrality measures without too much effort.

I do not believe a tool like this exists - but it can be easily implemented in Python using module networkx.

Subject: [SOCNET] Looking for a software tool

Hi all,

I am looking for a network software tool that can allow me to check network robustness under different types of attack, both commonly followed attack types (e.g. random attack, betweenness based attack etc.) and user-defined approaches (e.g. providing the order of the list of actors to remove). Do you know any software tool that can of help for this purpose?
