Denial of Service (DoS) Attack Detection and Mitigation

This work is funded in part by the E.C. through IST project SCAMPI (IST-2001-32404), and a research grant from FORTHnet S.A.


This work investigates procedures for detecting DoS attacks, and defence models for mitigating the service disruption caused by Distributed DoS attacks. In the area DoS attack detection, we investigate the application of statistical anomaly detection algorithms for detecting Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, and SYN flooding attacks in particular. In the area of defense models, we investigate deterministic packet marking algorithms which provide a common characterization of traffic streams in order to assist the detection and filtering of attack traffic.
