Denial of Service

Common Denial of Service Attacks

Denial of Service Internet Security Whitepapers

This paper will examine various denial of service attacks and network defense measures taken against them. A historical look at the evolution of these attacks from different flood attacks to zombie driven botnet attacks will shed light on their increasingly more sophisticated design and the networking community efforts to combat them. The current technology, motivation and future trends of distributed denial of service botnet attacks will be also be presented.

Defending Against a Denial-of-Service Attack on TCP

Denial of Service Internet Security Whitepapers

In this paper we propose a real-time anomaly detection method for detecting TCP SYN-flooding attacks. This method is based on the intensities of SYN segments which are measured on a network monitoring machine, in realtime. In the currently available solutions we note several important flaws such as the possibility of denying access to legitimate clients and/or causing service degradation at the potential target machines, therefore we aim to minimize such unwanted effects by acting only when it is necessary to do so: during an attack.

Denial of Service Attack Detection Using Extended Analog Computers

Denial of Service Internet Security Whitepapers

Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, a damaging assault on computer networking infrastructure, have been extensively examined by the digital computing community. However, no work has been done to examine the ability of Extended Analog Computers (EAC) to detect DoS attacks. In this paper, we discuss how EACs could be used in DoS detection.

Distributed Denial of Service Attacks: Protect Your Site from this Growing Threat

Denial of Service Internet Security Whitepapers

Distributed Denial of Services (DDoS) attacks present a serious threat to online organizations today — with constantly rising attack sizes and attack complexity, their ability to cripple websites grows on a daily basis. Not only do these attacks cost online organizations millions in lost revenues, they can cause severe damage to reputation, brand name and customer relationships.

Managing the Threat of Denial-of-Service Attacks

Denial of Service Internet Security Whitepapers

Denial-of-service (DoS) attacks have been launched against Internet sites for years. They are a significant problem because they can shut an organization off from the Internet and because there is no comprehensive solution—no silver bullet—for protecting your site or recovering from a denial of service. In this paper, we will describe the current situation with denial-of-service attacks and explore ways of addressing the problem.

Trends in Denial of Service Attack Technology

Denial of Service Internet Security Whitepapers

The traditional intent and impact of DoS attacks is to prevent or impair the legitimate use of computer or network resources. Regardless of the diligence, effort, and resources spent securing against intrusion, Internet connected systems face a consistent and real threat from DoS attacks because of two fundamental characteristics of the Internet.
