Abstract
One of the main components of national security is energy security. To ensure the protection of energy facilities, it is necessary to single out the most important facilities, the disruption of the functioning of which can cause irreparable consequences. The methods currently existing in Russia for identifying critical energy facilities do not take into account the interconnection of energy networks with other sectors of critical infrastructure. However, in practice, energy facilities are not only interconnected in a single network, but also connected with other critical infrastructures. The purpose of the study is to develop a formal approach to deal with this issue. To solve this problem, the author proposes to use the tool of the theory of complex networks. The relationships between objects of critical infrastructures can be described using multilayered networks, and centrality measures can be used as indicators of the importance of objects of critical infrastructure.
