Example text

The advantage of this combination is that it can exhaust the victims CPU as well as network bandwidth. (c) Application-layer DDoS attacks such as HTTP flooding contribute another common serious security threat. These attacks are lowrate attacks and are difficult to easily distinguish from legitimate traffic. (d) DDoS attack frequency has been increasing while attack durations are getting shorter. 7 shows the distribution of the number of DDoS attacks experienced per month across the Internet and the distribution of attack durations.

The master attacker chooses the agents that will perform the attack. Based on the nature of vulnerabilities present, some machines are compromised to use as agents. Attackers victimize these machines, which may have abundant resources, so that a powerful attack stream can be generated. In the early years, the attackers attempted to acquire control of these machines manually. However, with the development of advanced security attack tool(s), it has become easier to identify these machines automatically and instantly.

B) The attackers can arbitrarily change values of fields in layer 3, 4 and 7 protocol headers. 6. 8: Statistics of attack durations. attack, the attacker can alter fields like the SIP and TTL of the IP layer header as well as set and reset TCP flags in the transport layer header. (c) The attacker can change the attack rate, the secret cabal of attacking bots, and even the identity of the victim dynamically and at will. The attacker can also mix multiple attack vectors, even across layers, as in the case of a multivector DDoS attack, making defense more difficult.
