Improving Availability with Adaptive Roaming Replicas in Presence of Determined DoS Attacks
— Static replicas have been proven useful in providing fault tolerance and load balancing, but they may not provide enough assurance on the continuous availability of missioncritical data in face of a determined denial-of-service (DoS) attacker. A roaming replica scheme can provide higher availability assurance, but the overhead associated with replica movement and lookup is high. In this paper, we propose ARRP, an adaptive roaming replication protocol in which static replicas are used normally but if a certain percentage of static replicas has already been shut down, then a small number of roaming replicas will be added and stored in randomly selected hosts that are changed periodically. In particular, we analyze the appropriate threshold when the roaming replica scheme should be enabled by empirically investigating the tradeoff between availability, performance, and overhead. Simulation results show that ARRP can effectively mitigate the impacts of DoS attacks and host failures to ...
