In this paper, structural stability of discrete-time linear random dynamical systems is studied. A random dynamical system is called structurally stable with respect to a random norm if it is topologically conjugate to any random dynamical system which is sufficiently close to it in this norm. We prove that a discrete-time linear random dynamical system is structurally stable with respect to its Lyapunov norms if and only if it is hyperbolic.
