The analysis and representation of critical infrastructures (CIs) and their interdependencies is a key element to discover hidden vulnerabilities and threats for national and international security. In this paper an Agent-Based IIM Model (AB-IIM) has been provided. In order to obtain a detailed and expressive framework, the exchange of resources among the entities is explicitly modeled, while inoperability becomes an internal parameter.
