AID: A global anti-DoS service
Distributed denial of service (DDoS) has long been an open security problem of the Internet. Most proposed solutions require the upgrade of routers across the Internet, which is extremely difficult to realize, considering that the Internet consists of a very large number of autonomous systems with routers from different vendors deployed over decades. A promising alternative strategy is to avoid the universal upgrade of router infrastructure and instead rely on an overlay of end systems. The prior anti-DoS overlays were designed to protect emergency services for authorized clients. They assume that trust exists between authorized clients and a private server. Only authenticated traffic can pass through the overlay network to reach the server, while the attack traffic is not admitted without passing the authentication. The follow-up extension of the anti-DoS overlays for web service has other serious limitations. This paper attempts to solve an important problem. How to design an anti-...
