A router-based technique to mitigate reduction of quality (RoQ) attacks
We propose a router-based technique to mitigate the stealthy reduction of quality (RoQ) attacks at the routers in the Internet. The RoQ attacks have been shown to impair the QoS s...

Reduction of Quality (RoQ) Attacks on Dynamic Load Balancers: Vulnerability Assessment and Design Tradeoffs
—One key adaptation mechanism often deployed in networking and computing systems is dynamic load balancing. The goal from employing dynamic load balancers is to ensure that the o...
