About this book

The problem of Denial of Service is now so pervasive that virtually every computer connected to a network has the potential to be affected in some way. As things stand DoS and DDoS attacks present significant challenges to the continued use of the Internet for critical communications. The aim of this publication is to report on a collaborative research project into DoS and DDoS attacks undertaken jointly by a consortium of institutions from India and Australia. The publication offers insight into the complexity of the problem to be solved as well as the breadth of the research being conducted into the various facets of the DoS/DDoS problem. Some of the areas covered are: DDoS behavior understanding in real-time at high-packet rates, management of web services during DDoS, Creating conducive environments for DDoS prevention through provable authentication protocols, Identification of vulnerabilities specific to DDoS in emerging technologies, and the process of sustaining a legal, regulatory, and policy ambience with international cooperation.
