BinGo Posted February 2, 2011 Share Posted February 2, 2011 Hey Guys, I'm a postgrad researcher student in a cyber security program! Lately, I've been researching different approaches in order to defend (work around ) the DDoS attacks.In a recent paper that I've read, MICHAEL WALFISH and some of his colleagues present a counter-intuitive strategy for defending against a denial-of-service attack: they propose that a server ask all its clients to increase their messages to the server. Most likely, attackers among the clients are already transmitting at their local full capacity, and so are unable to do this, which means that messages from attackers will form a decreasing proportion of all messages received by the server. Now after reading Walfish paper, I'm having this interest to test Speak Up Approach myself trying to fully understand how to it functions and trying to take and improve the idea or the concept behind this technique ! and since I'm more of a researcher than a coder, I'd value the help of anyone who's able to design and implement a prototype for the SPEAK-UP defense by offense system. so if anyone of you guys see in their-selves that they are qualified to do it, please post here or e-mail me and i'll be willing to discuss the price for the design and coding for this prototype system ! for more information about the Walfish paper and more information about how is it implemented please read this: http://www.cs.utexas.edu/~mwalfish/papers/speakup-tocs10.pdf I'm looking forward to hear from you guys ! P.S Pardon my poor English, since English isn't my first Language ......i'm originally from Russia ! Cheers, Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
