Continued improvements in network bandwidth, cost, and ubiquitous access are enabling service providers to host desktop computing environments to address the complexity, cost, and mobility limitations of today's personal computing infrastructure. However, distributed denial of service attacks can deny use of such services to users. The authors present A2M, a secure and attack-resilient desktop computing hosting infrastructure. A2M combines a stateless and secure communication protocol, a single-hop Indirection-based network (IBN) and remote display architecture to provide mobile users with continuous access to their desktop computing sessions.
