Paperback. Pub Date :2014-04-01 Pages: 189 Publisher: Machinery Industry Press cyberspace development has brought opportunities as well as threats. ddos ??is one of the most devastating attacks. Ddos book from different angles were introduced aimed to answer some basic questions from the attacker's perspective: Who attacked me? What is the purpose of attacking me? How attackers attack? How can I protect myself? The book is divided into seven chapters. Chapter 1 describes the history ddos. and combed the exploration period. instrumental. weapons technology and the popularity of the process. Chapter 2 introduces the main source of ddos ??attacks – botnets. for its development. the formation and harm are discussed. and devoted to the voluntary botnet. Chapter 3 explains the main ddos ??attack methods. including network bandwidth resource-based attack. the attacker and the attac…
Essay from the year 2012 in the subject Computer Science – IT-Security, , language: English, abstract: In a nutshell what the researcher hopes to achieve by this project is to develop a practical solution to control Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks launched using BitTorrent protocol by tweaking the source code of an existing open source BitTorrent client. Even though BitTorrent is a useful protocol, it could be misused to launch DDoS attacks. Since the number who uses BitTorrent protocol is high, by launching a DDoS the victim's machine could be crippled. Hence as a remedy to the issue this report is formulated so that it discusses how the attacks are done and how it could be prevented. For a simple analogical demonstration of what this attack does, take a look at figure 1 where computer A cannot fulfill the requests of a legit user computer B. this is what DDoS attack does. After enhancing the security architecture of BitTorrent client this problem would not occur hence it is improved to control these attacks.
DNS Security: Hacking and Defending the Domain Name System provides tactics on how to secure a Domain Name System (DNS) framework by exploring common DNS vulnerabilities using real-world examples of DNS exploits and providing step-by-step guidelines for securing the infrastructure.
The book is a timely reference as DNS is an integral part of the Internet that translates IP addresses into easily remembered domain names. The book focuses entirely on the security aspects of DNS, combining internal and external data to analyze and effectively prioritize network threats. It shows how to build a security infrastructure based around intelligence, demonstrating how theory can work in real-life situations. Presents a multi-platform approach, covering Linux, BSD, and Windows DNS security tipsDemonstrates how to implement DNS Security tools, including numerous screen shots and configuration examplesProvides a timely reference on DNS, an integral part of the Internet that translates IP addresses into easily remembered domain namesIncludes information of interest to those working in 4DNS, authoritative services, BIND files, buffer overflows, DDoS Attacks, firewalls, transaction signatures, and version control, amongst other topics
The Internet, as well as other telecommunication networks and information systems, have become an integrated part of our daily lives, and our dependency upon their underlying infrastructure is ever-increasing. Unfortunately, as our dependency has grown, so have hostile attacks on the cyber infrastructure by network predators. The lack of security as a core element in the initial design of these information systems has made common desktop software, infrastructure services, and information networks increasingly vulnerable to continuous and innovative breakers of security. Worms, viruses, and spam are examples of attacks that cost the global economy billions of dollars in lost productivity. Sophisticated distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks that use thousands of web robots (bots) on the Internet and telecommunications networks are on the rise. The ramifications of these attacks are clear: the potential for a devastating largescale network failure, service interruption, or the total unavailability of service. Yet many security programs are based solely on reactive measures, such as the patching of software or the detection of attacks that have already occurred, instead of proactive measures that prevent attacks in the first place. Most of the network security configurations are performed manually and require experts to monitor, tune security devices, and recover from attacks. On the other hand, attacks are getting more sophisticated and highly automated, which gives the attackers an advantage in this technology race. A key contribution of this book is that it provides an integrated view and a comprehensive framework of the various issues relating to cyber infrastructure protection. It covers not only strategy and policy issues, but it also covers social, legal, and technical aspects of cyber security as well. We strongly recommend this book for policymakers and researchers so that they may stay abreast of the latest research and develop a greater understanding of cyber security issues.

An updated Denial-of-service attack interpretation. In data processing, a denial-of-service assault (DoS attack) either dispersed denial-of-service assault (DDoS attack) is an aim to create a engine either net-work asset not available to its designed consumers. Although the intents to take out, reasons for, and aims of a DoS assault might differ, it normally comprises of attempts to provisionally either until further notice interject either hang facilities of a service related to the Internet.
