ATTENTION: ATTackEr Traceback Using MAC Layer AbNormality DetecTION
Denial-of-Service (DoS) and Distributed DoS (DDoS) attacks can cause serious problems in wireless networks due to limited network and host resources. Attacker traceback is a promising solution to take a proper countermeasure near the attack origins, to discourage attackers from launching attacks, and for forensics. However, attacker traceback in Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANETs) is a challenging problem due to the dynamic topology, and limited network resources. It is especially difficult to trace back attacker(s) when they are moving to avoid traceback. In this paper, we introduce the ATTENTION protocol framework, which pays special attention to MAC layer abnormal activity under attack. ATTENTION consists of three classes, namely, coarse-grained traceback, fine-grained traceback and spatiotemporal fusion architecture. For energy-efficient attacker searching in MANETs, we also utilize small-world model. Our simulation analysis shows 79% of success rate in DoS attacker traceback with coa...
