Abstract

The evolution of Internet has radically changed the way millions of people conduct their financial affairs today. Online payment solutions and online banking services attract more and more customers every day, whereas Internet connectivity is essential for their availability. This study models the Internet structure in the context of known online financial services as a graph at the level of Autonomous Systems and assesses their connectivity using multiple graph measures. Our analyses show that the services have quite diverse measure values, and demonstrate the need of enhancing risk assessments for their availability.

Keywords: Availability, Internet connectivity, Financial services, Online banking, Online payments, Graph analysis
