As a basic prerequisite for worm detection based on computational intelligence in networks with locator/identifier separation, it is well worth considering the influence on worm propagation due to the incoming locator/identifier separation. In this paper, according to the characteristics of locator/identifier separation, we systematically analyze the mitigation of worm propagation in three aspects: address semantics, address space and mapping delay. By applying the classical AAWP and SIR worm

In particular, our research results show that, the characteristics of locator/identifier separation can help to markedly mitigate worm propagation, and networks with locator/identifier separation are more resistant to worm propagation than today's Internet.
