Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are attempts to overwhelm a computer system in order to deny access by legitimate users. They are generally unstoppable, but there is a good deal of on-going research on methods to reduce their negative effects. This paper will deal with the design of a model that simulates such an attack. The simulation model is then used to study possible ways to defend against these attacks. Three experiments are run: 1) using a priority queue to sort messages from clients based on how many connections they have open on the server; 2) limiting the number of connections each client can create; and 3) having the server forcefully delete the oldest established connection, whenever its connection table becomes full. Results show that method 1 is totally ineffective while method 2 somewhat improves the overall performance of the system. However, method 3, combined with method 2, produces significantly improved performance against a DDoS attack.
It's easy enough to install Wireshark and begin capturing packets off the wire–or from the air. But how do you interpret those packets once you've captured them? And how can those packets help you to better understand what's going on under the hood of your network? Practical Packet Analysis shows how to use Wireshark to capture and then analyze packets as you take an indepth look at real-world packet analysis and network troubleshooting. The way the pros do it.Wireshark (derived from the Ethereal project), has become the world's most popular network sniffing application. But while Wireshark comes with documentation, there's not a whole lot of information to show you how to use it in real-world scenarios. Practical Packet Analysis shows you how to:Use packet analysis to tackle common network problems, such as loss of connectivity, slow networks, malware infections, and moreBuild customized capture and display filtersTap into live network communicationGraph traffic patterns to visualize the data flowing across your networkUse advanced Wireshark features to understand confusing packetsBuild statistics and reports to help you better explain technical network information to non-technical usersBecause net-centric computing requires a deep understanding of network communication at the packet level, Practical Packet Analysis is a must have for any network technician, administrator, or engineer troubleshooting network problems of any kind.
