Denial of Service (DoS) attacks are a form of attack that seeks to make a network resource unavailable due to overloading the resource or machine with an overwhelming number of packets, thereby crashing or severely slowing the performance of the resource. Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) is a large scale DoS attack which is distributed in the Internet. Every computer which has access to the Internet can behave as an attacker. Typically bandwidth depletion can be categorized as either a flood or an amplification attack. Flood attacks can be done by generating ICMP packets or UDP packets in which it can utilize stationary or random variable ports. Smurf and Fraggle attacks are used for amplification attacks. DDoS Smurf attacks are an example of an amplification attack where the attacker sends packets to a network amplifier with the return address spoofed to the victim’s IP address. This book presents new research and methodologies along with a proposed algorithm for prevention of DoS attacks that has been written based on cryptographic concepts such as birthday attacks to estimate the rate of attacks generated and passed along the routers. Consequently, attackers would be identified and prohibited from sending spam traffic to the server which can cause DDoS attacks. Due to the prevalence of DoS attacks, there has been a lot of research conducted on how to detect them and prevent them. The authors of this short format title provide their research results on providing an effective solution to DoS attacks, including introduction of the new algorithm that can be implemented in order to deny DoS attacks. A comprehensive study on the basics of network security Provides a wide revision on client puzzle theory An experimental model to mitigate distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks

DDoS attack is evolving at a rapid and alarming rate; an effective solution must be formulated using an adaptive approach Most of the simulations are performed at the attack phase of the DDoS attack; thus the defense techniques developed focus mainly on filtering and isolating the attack, In order to develop and verify the effectiveness of a defense strategy, we needed a robust and flexible simulation tool, The Multi-Agent System Development Kit (MASDK) provided us a means to generate DDoS attack in a safe experimental environment for testing and validating security solutions, starting from the implantation phase: this allows researchers to develop new defense strategy even before the DDoS attack is launched, The paper begins with the study of the characteristics of DDoS attacks, the types of detection-and-response techniques, and the available DDoS attack simulation tools, The result generated by the MASDK simulation tool was used to evaluate the performance of the tool in simulating the DDoS attack over the networking environment

Abstract: Abstract of thesis entitled Investigation of a Router-based Approach to Defense against Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Attack Submitted by Eric Yik-Kwan CHAN for the degree of Master of Philosophy at The University of Hong Kong in August 2004 Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attacks have recently become a major security threat. DDoS attacks use thousands of zombies that can bring down a website. It is comparatively easy to launch such attacks, but very difficult to defend against them. The difficulties lie in the features of the DDoS attacks. These include: (1) the similarity between the DDoS attack packets and the normal packets; (2) the flooding nature of the DDoS attacks; (3) the unknown sources of attacks that make use of spoofed source IP addresses; and (4) the highly distributed nature of DDoS attacks. Several counter-measures, including traceback techniques, have been proposed by researchers, but it has not yet been possible to develop a generic scheme to solve the problem. This thesis investigates a DDoS defensive scheme, Intrusion Detection Router (IDR), aimed at providing a defense against flooding-based DDoS attacks of all possible types. IDR basically consists of three modules. When a suspicious DDoS attack is detected by the DDoS Attack Detection Module, attack packets will be classified and discarded by the Packet Classification Module. The remaining packets can be optionally rate-limited by the TrafficControl Module to provide a second line of defense. The effectiveness of IDR was analysed through various experiments using both internet traffic traces and a large-scale testbed. The results of these experiments demonstrated that IDR is able to detect and repel DDoS attacks of different types.

The complexity and severity of the Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are increasing day-by-day. The Internet has a highly inconsistent structure in terms of resource distribution. Numerous technical solutions are available, but those involving economic aspects have not been given much consideration. The book, DDoS Attacks – Classification, Attacks, Challenges, and Countermeasures, provides an overview of both types of defensive solutions proposed so far, exploring different dimensions that would mitigate the DDoS effectively and show the implications associated with them. Features: Covers topics that describe taxonomies of the DDoS attacks in detail, recent trends and classification of defensive mechanisms on the basis of deployment location, the types of defensive action, and the solutions offering economic incentives. Introduces chapters discussing the various types of DDoS attack associated with different layers of security, an attacker’s motivations, and the importance of incentives and liabilities in any defensive solution. Illustrates the role of fair resource-allocation schemes, separate payment mechanisms for attackers and legitimate users, negotiation models on cost and types of resources, and risk assessments and transfer mechanisms. DDoS Attacks – Classification, Attacks, Challenges, and Countermeasures is designed for the readers who have an interest in the cybersecurity domain, including students and researchers who are exploring different dimensions associated with the DDoS attack, developers and security professionals who are focusing on developing defensive schemes and applications for detecting or mitigating the DDoS attacks, and faculty members across different universities.
