Download Modeling and Evaluating Denial of Service Attacks for by Zhou Lu, Wenye Wang, Cliff Wang PDF

By Zhou Lu, Wenye Wang, Cliff Wang

This SpringerBrief covers modeling and research of Denial-of-Service assaults in rising instant and cellular functions. It makes use of an application-specific method to version and overview denial-of-service assaults. 3 rising purposes are explored: multi-modal CSMA/CA networks, time-critical networks for the shrewdpermanent grid, and shrewdpermanent cellphone functions. The authors outline a brand new functionality metric to quantify the advantages of backoff misbehavior and express the affects of quite a lot of backoff mishandling nodes at the community functionality, and suggest a scheme to lessen the hold up of time-critical message supply lower than jamming assaults in clever grid purposes. An research at the resilience of cellular prone opposed to malware assaults is integrated to strengthen figuring out of community vulnerabilities linked to rising instant networks and gives instrumental information into the protection layout for destiny instant and cellular purposes. This booklet is acceptable for college kids, school, engineers, and specialists within the technical zone of instant conversation, cellular networks and cyber security.
