报告摘要/Abstract:
Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks typicallyexhaust bandwidth, processing capacity, or memory of a targeted machine,service or network. Despite enormous efforts in combating DDoS attacks in thepast decade, DDoS attacks are still a serious threat to the security of cyberspace.In this talk I shall outline the efforts of my research group in defend againstDDoS attacks. In particular, this talk will concentrate on the followingcritical issues related to DDoS attacks: (1) Traceback of DDoS attacks throughflexible packet marking; (2) Traceback of DDoS attacks using EntropyVariations; (3) Dealing with flash crowds; and (4) Dealing with low-rate DDoSattacks. The talk will be based on the following papers:
