Terrorist attacks and their probable consequences in networks are explored with the account of the network character of the modern terrorism. By using the network resources, the structure of a network conflict of terrorist character is formalized including the metrics of its depth. Probability and entropy models of a network conflict of terrorist character are proposed, taking into account the analytical estimations and regulation of risks of conflict situations occurrence. Viewing such characteristics as the value of a filler volume unit and the network bandwidth, the authors propose analytical expressions for risk, damage, chance and durability of the critical infrastructure elements.
