By doing this, readers can identify when something on the network doesn’t match what it should and, more importantly, can create any type of sequence of events or packets that they want on the network and see how the defenses or the machines that we send them to react.

In this quantitative quasi-experimental study two distributed denial of service attacks were captured and the characteristics of the attacks were used to detect botnets by identifying egressing distributed denial of service attack packets at the source of the attack. A sample Dark DDoSer botnet was constructed and used to launch a distributed denial of service attack. The characteristics of the distributed denial of service attacks were used as the independent variables in a quasi-experiment where network traffic was monitored with Snort to detect DDoS packets. The dependent variable for the experiment was false positive alerts for the DDoS packets. The findings showed that the characteristics of a distributed denial of service attack can be used to pro-actively detect botnets through egress monitoring.
